Edith Woolf, Her Debut Release

Edith Woolf: 'Through' an emotional soundtrack

She shares her most inner feelings and struggles with the world, while displaying an abundance of talent.


Connecticut singer/songwriter Edith Woolf Friday, October 19 released her debut EP "Through," an intimate and emotional soundtrack.

The track "Belly of The Beast" made it onto one of Spotify's playlists "Sad Girl Song Day" within the very first week of the release. "Belly of The Beast" is presumably about a reflection on past romantic relationships and how she now realizes she deserved so much more than that.

Woolf's most popular track on the EP is "What We Said," according to her Spotify profile. The song evokes emotional darkness with acceptance in a way that makes the song relatable to people who struggle with their mental health.

In the hook of the song, the lyrics build up into a strong message, accepting someone or yourself through instability and chaos.

"How does that make you feel? Was I stable enough to marry? I guess it doesn't matter now but I actually think you love me this way," Woolf says.

The song can be interpreted as a conversation between her and a loved one or it could even be an inner conversation with herself. Either way, it's talking about the vulnerability and loneliness within a person who has a mental illness and accepting that person, loving them regardless.

Throughout the EP she talks about hard, personal topics such as battling mental illness and reflection of family and romantic relationships alike. Topics such as these are difficult for a person to speak upon publicly and to put a record as raw and personal as it is out into the world for everyone to hear is incredibly courageous.

Edith Woolf who is commonly known as Meredith Martins of Stamford, Connecticut has been writing music since she was 6 years old. She is 29 years old with her entire soul and heart on her sleeve, recreating her experiences in every single lyric with passion and complete honesty.

"To overcome your demons, you must go through them," Woolf said.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
