Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?

Released on November 1, 2022. This is a song of coping with loss.

Since the pandemic began, I have experienced losing members of my family in really unexpected ways.

This is just my way of expressing my family’s grief, as well as the unending hope that we will see each other again someday.

What is your vision for this song? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?

I want the song to resonate with others who are in the same situation, aching the same aches, and giving them comfort in knowing that they are not alone with what they are going through.

Anything else we should know about it? Future releases? 

I am in the process of completing a 4 song EP that I plan to release early next year.
