Personal Quotes (2)

It's not too 'left' from what I've done before with IMX. The difference is that this album is more about my own personal feelings and situations I've been in.
My manager Chris Stokes has been my mentor since I first started out in this business and when we were preparing to do the album, we agreed that it should be an opportunity for me to show my strength as a singer.
