Finally! I've been waiting to get my hands on these tracks for quite some time. I'm in love with the truth in this girl's voice. It speaks to my soul directly; as if the lyrics aren't even the vessel here, the timbre is.
Favorite track: A Sea To Take Me.
This EP captures moments of my creative life over the course of an incredibly transitional last two years. Highlighting pieces of what I have made and discovered in relationship to others and in relationship to myself, and spanning my journey from Providence to LA, these songs are not perfect, but they are honest. Thank you for listening.

Heartfelt thanks to all of the brilliant artists and humans who contributed to and supported the making of this EP. I could not have done it alone.
