Music as an art form became a channel for exploring and conveying some recurrent themes: the inevitable ultimate schism between individuals (Thought Ships and Diamond Journey), the conflicting needs of belonging and freedom (Drifter and Taking Root Taking Wing), the fear of our own overpowering autonomy over our lives (Bird of Prey and Mythmaker).
The 2017 summer in Sweden was the onset of a creative surge where three more songs were recorded, and recordings from as far back as a decade were mixed down. The magnetism of the project steadily increased, drawing in sound engineers, photographers, designers, music distributors, and crowd funders in a surge towards the fulfilment of a ten-year-old dream.
This independent release emerged, encapsulating the journey of the long way home, chronicling a decade of an artist and her music ripening together. It speaks both to the unique and universal journey: ripening from child to human, in pursuit of the personal power that can fulfil childhood dreams, and through it becoming who you’ve always been. Enjoy, here’s to dreaming!
