Personal Quotes (1)

A lot of the songs I wrote when I was really depressed, and then the later songs I wrote after coming out from my depression, so the theme of the album pretty much is overcoming obstacles and overcoming the darkness. I'm really grateful for all these experiences because I believe that until you are absorbed by darkness you can't overcome it and face the light. - On her debut album "Love Is Dead".
