About this item

How often do we hear from the outsider’s perspective? For rising new artist Gia Ford, those figures on the fringes of society are by far the most fascinating. Her songs tell the stories of the downtrodden to the downright dangerous. And through them, we begin to hear familiar, uncomfortable truths about ourselves.

'Transparent Things' is Gia Ford's debut album, and first
album release with Chrysalis Records. 'Transparent Things' is about alienation. “Most of the characters in these songs are outcasts, all with unique
ways of feeling on the periphery, somehow,” Ford says. “I’ve discovered, through the grouping of these songs, that I’m drawn to this sort of story.” While each song operates in its own realm, their subject matters create a
throughline of eccentricity that turns 'Transparent Things' into a kind of odyssey of outcasts.

“'Transparent Things' isn’t a concept album, but I think I have always been drawn to darker subject matters,” she says. “We’ve all gone through a period of not understanding why we feel a certain way, or having the sense that something is missing in our lives. We’ve all felt like outsiders.”
