Change the Music Change the Mindset Heal the World
This song represents survival and pushing past all the negative thoughts that can bring us to the brink. It's about standing up for yourself and taking control of your life. Sometimes we are faced with a thought, a person or an entity that is literally trying to destroy us. I went through this at a young age and it wasn't until I was 27 years old that I finally stopped allowing abusive situations and people to rule my life. I faced my demons head on one night and won. Depression can manifest itself in many forms and for me I was seeing the grim reaper standing over me, so there is some literal context in the song as well. I have come a long way since then and I thank music for being my healer.
I was born and raised in a small town on Vancouver Island called Gold River. My mother is a musician who plays 7 instruments and an incredible artist and my father was a very hardworking logger who instilled in me my determination and ethics. My mother told me I had a guitar in my hand by the time I was 3. I thank her for taking the time to teach me music at a young age. I have been a performing artist in Victoria for the last 13 years. I have been the front woman for three different bands and have loved every minute of it. In the last year due to the pandemic I have been at home and really diving into writing alot more. I am hoping to take my music from performing to recording this year!
