Her most recent album, Soft Spot Of My Heart, is a globally savvy collection of tracks that foreground her emotional honesty and voice while fully embracing the musical colors and influences of a diverse group of collaborators from Portugal, NYC, Cape Verde and Brazil.
In her own words:
“The soft spot is about holding with deep compassion all the stuff we run away from. This helps us love others better. If this process feels painful, I have found I need to grow my brain to contain more, more of others’ perspectives and stories and needs. I try to carry this understanding into my songwriting. [Soft Spot Of My Heart] is about artists, not about music that happens to be from particular countries. It expands beyond a particular genre. It’s about a collaborative work from a group of artists with something to offer that spans genres and geographies.”
