“Catch On Fire”
“Catch On Fire” hits me right in the heart and it's not a single but I love to sing it. The words have continued to grow with me.”
“Over the years I've come to learn what a common thing humiliating sexual experiences are for most people and especially for women. I know I'm not the first woman who has felt used after sex.”
“This is my sexy love song to my muse, my passion, my partner: music. A friend of mine once told me that art will always be there when I need it, and ain't that the truth. I look for her – my muse – to bandage all my bumps and bruises with melody and lyrics, she is where I channel my spirit and a safe place to land my love.”
“'Girlfriend' is a rejection of the labels we use that oftentimes dictate our experiences and also define the ways in which we experience each other. What started as a recount of a personal experience evolved into a greater reflection on ownership versus partnership in a relationship. I haven't spoken much about it, but in short I was in a place in my life where I valued my autonomy and was very clear about that and the person I was hanging out with had a hard time understanding. I think they had not yet met a woman who wouldn't swoon over the opportunity to be in a relationship. I was not that person. And ultimately, I felt punished for living exactly how I said I would. And so, like all writers, I took my feelings and frustrations to the page and wrote about it. “Girlfriend” was simply saying that sometimes a date is just a date. And it's not just men who feel that way. Women do too.”
“I look for her – my muse – to bandage all my bumps and bruises with melody and lyrics, she is where I channel my spirit and a safe place to land my love.”
“This song is particularly near to my heart, I wrote it for... you guessed it... my brother 😝 and has felt ever more representative of my heart in these isolating times. I miss my family, I miss my friends, and I miss the music community that I am so privileged to be a part of.”
“This song has a very special place in my heart & to be back on the land where I first wrote it is a wonderfully unexpected full-circle moment. This song has been a *very* long time in the making and holds an incredibly special place in my heart. This year once again I've found myself asking 'Where will I find home and where will it find me?' This year has been a tough one. For us all. In so many complex and nuanced ways. As we orbit the one-year mark, I know many of us (especially us live performers) are feeling the lethargy & thick cement we find our feet in. I hope this song can be a moment of peace, a salve for the soul, in this time where I think we could all use a bit of comfort. And I don't mean sitting in our sweats at home all day 🤪 I mean the kind of comfort that comes from connection; the lightning that makes us feel alive. The comfort that radiates in the magic of us being here at all. I send you all love 💛”
“Happy To Have You”
“Living far from home and far from the people I love, this song is about gratitude and about telling the people you love that you love them.”
