I love to tell stories. It’s the only way I know how to write music. The story is what creates the inspiration for the soundscape of the song. It’s everything to me as a songwriter and it's what captivates me as a listener.
I have written 3 albums worth of my own songs (and many more unrecorded and unreleased), not always about me, but mostly, because those are the stories that come from my experiences and that I feel most connected to.
An idea has been popping into my head over the past year or so:
- What about all the stories that exist out there that we never hear?
- The stories that do not have a voice to be heard?
- Why are they any less relevant?
I am so sure that we would all learn something from those unshared and unspoken stories and wouldn't it be beautiful to be able to give them an outlet to me heard. All those lessons of love, longing, pain, inspiration, strength, overcoming struggle...... that's my mission with this project.
