I decided to create this album to give an insight into, the light of my mind, through my passion for music, singing and storytelling. It is an honour to share my thoughts through these songs, reflecting my journey so far as an artist and my empowerment as a young woman. The tracks chosen, resonate with me, for lots of different reasons, some celebrating key moments in my career, others because they speak to my feelings and thoughts.
Collectively they convey Strength, Love, Challenge, Desire, Aspiration. Additionally, this album includes an original track “The Light That You Are” that I wrote, delving into moments of lack of self-worth despite the accolades and how much light they shine. The last few years have been difficult on artists around the world, but it has reminded me, of the importance and impact of Music, Songs and the art form I love and the joy it can bring. Connecting with the audience means the world to me and I hope this album impacts them as much as telling these stories impact me.
