The title of the album is influenced heavily by my fascination by the phoenix, creatures of myth that are immortal, reborn in flames. My life has been filled with fears, insecurities and stupid mistakes. It’s a work in progress, to say the least. I’ve always liked the idea of getting a clean slate, starting over completely.
I know that isn’t possible. But, through words, I have felt something close to being reborn. I’m finding myself through my characters’ struggles, finding my place and my very being, while still learning from my past.
It’s a pretty slow process, but I’m excited to see what the future holds as I emerge from my own phoenix flames.
