Following on from Kiara Rodrigues’ radio hits, “High School Reunion” and “Message In A Bottle”, comes “Ain’t Your Rehab” being released Friday 6th October, and sees the award- winning Nash Chambers (Kasey Chambers/Jimmy Barnes/Troy Cassar- Daley) return to the producer’s chair. Chambers again highlights Rodrigues’ continuing growth as a songwriter and an original artist who is carving out her own musical niche.
The song has instantly resonated with her audiences when played live. “I’ve had people come up to me and tell me they’d had this same experience or knew someone in a similar situation”, she says. “Ultimately, it’s not our responsibility to fix somebody, no matter how much we care about them”.
“I wrote this song thinking about how sometimes we go into relationships thinking we can fix someone and put them back together again”, says Rodrigues. “That can often come at the price of our own wellbeing, and its inevitably unachievable”.
