Sometimes we find the things we're looking for, and sometimes they find us. I grew up not having a thing to do with music - hockey, school, and pursuing a career were center stage. But then a few years ago a song came on the radio that made me want to make songs too. I'm not certain why. Maybe it's because we all have stories to tell, we all have things inside that deserve to take flight into the world. "What you are is not who you'll be" - if we dream, we can be whoever we want.
These songs are about feeling like we know ourselves one moment, and like we’re lost the next. About having almost everything, but not the one thing. About all the spaces we find ourselves, inside and out. Because sometimes all we can hang onto are hopes and dreams, and in this space that might be all we need.
