Olivia Penalva shares an important message with her single, ‘Judge Away’. She reminds us to root for ourselves even while we have people around us judging us.

The idea for judge away came to me late one night while I was scrolling through social media realizing how much judgment there is in the world. I think all of us have experienced some sort of pain from judgement and outside opinion wether it be from friends, loved ones and even strangers. It’s not always easy to accept and love ourselves with all that noise and I realized how much more liberating it would feel to drown it all out and root for ourselves instead. It doesn’t mean it’s not always going to affect us but we have to choose to feel good when we can. I wrote this song with my friend Troy Samson and the words just fell into place as we talked about all the things we’ve been through and the things we wish we had said.”
