Emerging Australian music artist Anita Spring has just released Still a Child, a contemporary country-pop track that follows the success of her last single This Ain’t Pretty which received a lot of media attention.
The new song is an uplifting yet self-reflective track with a strong melody, great hooks and a lyric that many will identify with. Anita has quite a history in Australian music and has experienced all the positives and the pitfalls of the music industry. As Anita has said, ‘I was signed to Universal Music as a pop artist and despite some early success, like for so many others, my time in that machine came to an end. I reflect back on that period so fondly.
I was given four years of magical experiences that I will always be grateful for and it’s led to many musical relationships, most of whom I collaborate with today’.
Anita has a long list of impressive musical collaborators and affiliates which include Gary Kemp (Spandau Ballet) John Holiday and Trevor Steel (Escape Club) Grammy Award-winning Doug Gills, Mark Narmore (Reba McEntire, Shenandoah) Powderfinger, Vanessa Amorosi, Tina Arena, Christine Anu, Ian Moss, Joe Camilleri and Ross Wilson.

Still a Child begins sparsely, with an acoustic guitar and Anita’s voice, with the first verse establishing the conceptual elements of the song, hinting at escape and a return to a state that reaffirms identity.
And just like This Ain’t Pretty, where recognition of an imbalance is clearly stated, Still a Child similarly notes a developing change but one faced with self-assuredness and clarity. The new track has many more characteristics of a pop-rock song yet Anita’s approach blurs the lines a little, giving it an intimate, more country like flavour.
And just like This Ain’t Pretty, Still a Child is sure to attract a lot of attention and do great things for this multifaceted music artist.
