Provides a fun, modern context for the same inspiration that once fueled classic sonnets from the likes of Shakespeare and Lord Byron.

Naethan Apollo is an influencer and spoken word artist who just entered in a long distance relationship with his girlfriend. As a way of coping with his new situation, Naethan poured his heart and soul into a song that she can listen to whenever she is feeling down and empty.

"To You, From Me" is Naethan's 4th release, and comes straight from his 'weird heart' as way of offering a sense of home to his love, wherever she happens to be. This unassuming track blends hints of jazz cadence with a backing track on the ukulele, and fuses rhythmic elements of hip-hop with some deeply personal musings on the nature of love and connection. Naethan artfully exposes his own need for intimacy while also navigating the complex territory of emotional interdependence with an ample sense of humor and a natural sense of flow. "To You, From Me" provides a fun, modern context for the same inspiration that once fueled classic sonnets from the likes of Shakespeare and Lord Byron.

You know, I could ramble on for hours
But the words would never match up perfectly
To show the power that you hold
