Georgia singer-songwriter and guitarist Naia Izumi has just released a visual for his new single "Good At Being Lonely."

The song is from Izumi's new album "A Residency In The Los Angeles Area."

The Urban Music Scene website says this about Izumi's latest single:

“Good At Being Lonely” serves as the album’s centerpiece. Naia’s lush guitars bleed into a hypnotic refrain, “You’ll see I’m good at being lonely.” “I’m looking back at a lot of my life,” says Naia of the track. “I’ve always been someone who thinks for myself. I don’t just take people’s word for things or popular opinions. I want to know something by looking at it from all the different perspectives and then finding the truth somewhere in the middle. That can leave you really lonely sometimes though, but I’ve gotten good at it.”

Izumi said this about his music: “I make music I’m not hearing,” says Naia, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 16. Developing a fascination with the guitar at an early age, Naia’s imitable sound is the result of both a lifelong study and single-minded dedication, the musician playing for hours on end and losing himself in the instrument. “That was my purpose as a kid. I tried to get better and better, so I could make what I was hearing in my head. I’m just the average dude who’s just trying to do the best he can. I’m learning to control what I want to say with the vibe, the music, and the words. If it connects to you in some way, I’m a happy person.”
