"Petal Lips, Icy Eyes" explores the aftermath of a relationship that left me feeling emotionally drained and devoid of life. The EP cover symbolizes this sense of emotional winter. The black accessories signify a metaphorical funeral, while the yellow gown represents my journey to self-resurrection as I aimed to become the Sun in my own sky. The EP is a product of my self-expression, entirely self-written, produced, and recorded. The first four tracks were composed during the turbulent days of the relationship. "Jeep Wrangler" draws inspiration from Taylor Swift's early country music, while "Happy to Drown" is a nod to the intricate and enveloping sounds of Enya. The title track, "Petal Lips, Icy Eyes," showcases my background in classical music, while channeling influences from Regina Spektor and Ingrid Michaelson. "Words" takes inspiration from the bluesy, folky vibes of Fleetwood Mac and the songwriting style of Christine McVie. The EP's final track, "Michael," penned several years after the relationship ended, serves as an epilogue with its dreamlike qualities inspired by the music of Evanescence and Billie Eilish. The themes and emotions explored are relatable to anyone who has experienced the complexities of love and loss.

Thank you so much to everyone who has been supporting my music. It's not easy being a DIY-lofi-bedroom pop-whatever tf you wanna call it, but I'm trying my best just to share my music with the world. These little songs I've had in the back of my mind for years deserve to see the light of day. And if you love it, thanks :) And if you hate it, well, thanks for listening anyway :)

Today my best friend VALERIE releases her debut album,
WITHIN THE CONFINES OF YOU.
This is a big day for me both professionally and personally. I am a co-writer on 4 songs on the album: "Anchorage," "Rooms," "The Villain," and "Things My Lovers Gave Me," which is an honor and a dream come true. But above all, I have witnessed my friend develop her talent into her own beautiful brand of magical artistry. Her album paints a world that can only be created by her imagination and genius, filled with electronic dance rhythms, bold and brave melodies, and intriguing lyricism. I love her vocal arrangements on all the beautiful harmonies and background vocals. I also have to shoutout Lucas Morelli, who produced the album, and did an immaculate job! CONGRATULATIONS VALERIE, WISHING YOU ROSES.
