“brown paper bag”
“'brown paper bag' is the first song in the twelve chapter musical story of my life. Whether protecting me hyperventilating after a or being my only friend during high school lunch, the brown paper bag has always been by my side, literally and figuratively. This song is the beginning of my journey. Basically, it got me through the worst part life :)”
“you were the worst part of my life”
“'you were the worst part of my life' is the second song in the twelve chapter musical story of my life. Thus song tells a true story - a difficult one to share but I want to get it out there. I opened up to my two best friends about also being interested in girls, and within the same 24 hours period, they both told me they didn't want to be my friend anymore. While going through this friend breakup and struggling with my sexuality, I was at to be honest, I was feeling pretty hollow my most vulnerable. I started dating someone who helped me through this time and said they were different, bu ended up being even more toxic than my ex-friends. I have had so many restorative experiences since that breakup and have been able to find friends who love me for who I am. Because of this, and because of my slowly growing self - confidence, I finally feel ready to share my story. If you are struggling with your sexuality, please know you are never alone and there are people out there who will love you for exactly who you re.

“'hollow' is the third song in the twelve chapter musical story of my life. The song tells the story of the intense sorrow that follows a breakup, in addition to loneliness and a bit of angst. Last summer, I was sitting in the room with my co-writer, Brandon, and he asked how I was feeling / if I had anything on my mind that I wanted to write about. I shared with him that I was really struggling because things had just ended with someone that I had developed strong I felt like was buying real estate to like in their past feelings for. I kept coming back to this person even though they kept pushing me away every time it started going somewhere. At a certain point, I realized enough was enough and that they weren't going to change. I knew that this time was going to be the last, which was freeing but also really hard and sad. The only way I knew how to cope with it was to write it out, and that's exactly what we did. This song just poured out of us. I'm pretty excited with how this one turned out. Writing 'hollow' was freeing and cathartic, and I hope that you love it as much as I do.”
“'Sadie' marks the fourth and first EP release 2023, in the twelve song chapter musical story of my life. With the title track, 'SADIE' i found myself in a self-reflection. My buddies place of pushed me to 30h! 3 really open up in this song. I was a little hesitant to do so, but I'm really happy I did.”
