NASHVILLE, TN, UNITED STATES, June 5, 2023/ — Country/Pop artist Torrey McDowell’s debut EP “Not A Man” is out now. Written by Torrey and produced by Christian Harger (Patrick Droney, Michael Shynes & Cassadee Pope), this EP will take you from joyous highs to tearful lows as you experience relationship struggles and her journey to self-acceptance.

“This EP is as personal as it gets for me. The songs will take you on a journey of self-acceptance, following intuition and love. Above all, I want listeners to feel empowered to be their true and authentic selves,” says Torrey.

This four-song EP is a reflection of the struggles Torrey faced opening up about her identity, making it perfect for PRIDE month playlists. Listeners are drawn in by songs “Not a Man” and “Outloud”, which showcase a longing for society’s acceptance regardless of who you are and who you love. The title track is a heartbreaking example of what it’s like to deeply desire support and acceptance regardless of the conditions of your love story. Additional tracks featured on the EP include previous releases “It Gets Better” and “Come on Back to Georgia”, Torrey’s most recent release about missing a long distance partner.
