Abigail Fierce

“I started writing songs in middle school because I was kind of shy. I think it was a way for me to control my narrative when I felt like I didn’t have much control over the things that were happening to me or around me,” singer-songwriter Abigail Fierce says. She found coming out extremely difficult to talk about—although not as difficult to write about. “Writing about [things] is how I work through [them],” she says. “And by releasing music, I have a growing platform to help other people feel less alone.” Now, with her songs streaming over four million times on Spotify, and starring roles on shows like Love, Victor and This Is Us, Fierce is building quite the platform. Her latest release, “Daphne,” is a pop-rock-inspired sapphic love song—and just the kind of music Fierce wants to see more of. “I try to write music that I wish existed, and ‘Daphne’ is definitely a song I wish I’d had growing up,” she says. But the most rewarding part of her work happens when listeners share how her music has made a difference in their lives—how “Scream It to the Whole World” helps someone come out or “I Just Want to Feel Okay Again” lets them work through their grief. Through her work, Fierce wants to help people feel a little less alone, whether it’s by portraying LGBTQ+ characters on television or creating music that many yearn to hear. “I want to be a positive role model for young people and continue making a difference in people’s lives,” she says.
