ings, on the subject of her upcoming debut LP, "Lullaby Rock":
“I deeply believe that music functions as software for the brain, and can reinforce/squish emotions. Each song on this album is some form of advice to myself. Every single one began as a repeated phrase I would sing to myself in order to bring myself through a difficult situation. It is intended to be musical software to put the listener in healthy states of accepting, processing, and striving.”
