We’ve all been there: living in tough times, not knowing what the future has in store for us. Sometimes, we even feel as though we’re all alone. But guess what, we actually aren’t. We have people out there, wanting the best for us. People who aren’t afraid to tell you that they’re there, and all you have to do is say the word. So don’t be afraid, because you just have to always remember that you have friends, who are willing to shoulder that weight along with you.
American artist and humanitarian Isabelle Fries has released her latest single, “What Can I Do”, addressed to people who need help as well as to those who want to extend their help to others. It’s a song that isn’t afraid to show its true colors all throughout its runtime, choosing not to compromise its heartfelt message with complex poetic stances that ruins some songs.
Written by Seth Baer, “What Can I Do” is a track that lends itself to the thought of being a pillar for someone in dire need, much like someone else was for you in your time of darkness. Of course, its premise was mainly thought of by Fries herself, who has strong humanitarian views, even going on to say that this song is one of the most personal ones that she has released by far.
Fries’s flair for acoustic sound truly stands out on the song, thanks to the help of Grammy-winning producer Rob Chiarelli, whose experience with production really shines through with how the track’s soundscape is held up throughout. Altogether, this is a song that can be appreciated from all angles, from its meaning, its writing, and its entirety.

Hans is an engineering student with a growing dismay for math. As ironic as that sounds, he’s always looking for a break from digesting numbers and symbols by indulging in things he likes instead: music, writing, and video games. This guy is also the type to hog the microphone on karaoke night, so be careful when you’re inviting him for some singing over drinks.
