Partially deaf Grammy nominee battles to restore hearing after sudden loss

Grammy-nominated musician K. Flay is opening up to fans about her sudden encounter with hearing loss.

Critics and fans alike have long praised K. Flay’s innovative songwriting and gifted lyricism. But on Friday, the artist posted photos on Instagram as she underwent treatment for “[her] sudden sensorineural hearing loss.” Although more than halfway through treatment, she said there was no improvement in “one-sided deafness and tinnitus in [her] upright ears.”

K. Flay first revealed in a September 8 Instagram post that she recently woke up with no hearing in that ear. She also said she was struggling with “severe dizziness”.

“[I]I was diagnosed with SSNHL (sudden sensorineural hearing loss) and labyrinthitis, which is when a virus enters your ear canal and attacks the hair cells,” she wrote at the time.[D]The actors don’t really know how or why it happens – it’s just one of those weird things.”

In this Friday’s post, K. Flay updated fans on her health, saying she was “working hard to accept and adjust to this new sensory experience of the world.”

Some days are better than others, writes K.Flay. Sometimes she may wake up and cry or scream a little.

“[A]And other mornings I listen to Harry Potter in my left ear, make coffee and feel very calm,” K. Flay continued. “I think the most unexpected challenge was the impact hearing loss on my balance and orientation which makes basic things (like walking or driving) really difficult. I’m in physio to work on that, and I’m getting a little better every day. I can now do a jumping jack :))))) my goal is to move fairly freely by the end of October.”

K.Flay’s debut album in 2014 dog’s life peaked at no. 2 on Billboard’s Heatseekers album chart. She was nominated for two Grammys in 2018: “Best Rock Song” for her single “Blood in the Cut” and “Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical” for her LP Every where is somewhere.

The singer’s experience somewhat mirrors the plot of the 2020 film The sound of metal. Starring Riz Ahmed, it’s about a metal drummer whose world is rocked after he begins to lose his hearing.

K. Flay’s latest post has received an outpouring of support from fans and other musicians. The Grammy Award-winning rapper Macklemore responded on Instagram with the message, “Sending love,” in addition to a red heart emoji.

Even though it has undoubtedly been difficult for K. Flay to adjust, she always tries to stay positive. Many others are also coping with illness and change, she wrote in her Friday post, and it’s important to always “remember that you are not alone.”

“[A]As the legend pema chödrön says, “we can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and fearful, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what is wrong. scares us. we always have that choice,” K. Flay continued. “LET’S BE GENTLE AND KIND TOGETHER OK???? OKAY. gif baby.”
