Independent singer-songwriter Kulick debuted a re-worked version of his song ‘H‘ Friday.
Originally released in 2017, the song is based on a poem written by an acquaintance of Kulick’s (a.k.a. Jacob Kulick) named Alexandria Sienkiewicz. Sienkiewicz wrote the poem in 2016 at the age of 23 as she battled an addiction to heroin.
Sienkiewicz died in April 2016 from an accidental overdose of fentanyl as she battled her addiction. The young woman’s mother asked Kulick to turn her daughter’s poem into the original song.
Sienkiewicz’s mother offered the following comment in regards to the anniversary of her daughter’s passing and the updated take of ‘H.’
“Five years ago we lost our daughter Alexandria which feels like yesterday,” she said. “The realization of knowing the last time we spoke to her, and said “I love you” was five years ago is heart-breaking. We were so uneducated looking back on substance use disorder and embarrassed to ask five years ago, but we are happy with the changes we helped to make. By bringing substance use disorder out of the darkness and into the light has helped so many people save themselves. Our hope is that Alex’s words and Kulick’s music inspires more individuals to reach out for help and more parents to get educated in this matter of alcohol and drugs, that is what our daughter wanted.”
Kulick expanded on her comments.
“We wanted to make a better version of the song and release it on all platforms instead of only YouTube so that it could reach more people going through a similar situation,” he said. I wanted to share the message of love and support instead of the stigma that is associated with ‘drug addicts.’
I wanted to give Alexandria’s poem about her struggle with addiction a voice,” he added. “This is a story about heroin first and foremost, but anyone who has ever felt depression, anxiety, addiction, experienced negative self-talk, or internal struggle will be able to feel the power of Alexandria’s words.’
The variances in the two renditions of the song are subtle. A close listen to the song that the song’s climax is more reserved in its new rendition than in the original, for instance.
