A few words on the woman I've become. As of now.
Music has not been the only thing I've done in this life.
It is not the only thing I love.
But it is the one thing,
the ever capable thing,
that has saved me,
that keeps saving me,
from myself above all,
again, and again, and again.
"If I hold any kind of spirituality,
it has to do with music"
I owe just about everything I am to music.
I know fairly little about it.
I will not, by any stretch, at any time, claim to understand it.
And if I am worth any of my pretty words,
I will live a life devoted to it.
My second album," Kaikki mikä mussa laulaa" (Everything that sings in me)
was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee
in October of 2018 and shall be released later in 2019.
