Hey Our Basement,
I’ve experienced bullying and have let a lot of people control me in the past, which led me to struggle with building self confidence. I wouldn’t argue with anyone and do everything that people said I should do.
I never knew how to stand up for myself or have an opinion.
I felt like I had to shut up and look pretty all the time.
Lately, I experienced this again and said to myself, enough is enough, it’s time to wake up. I can’t keep letting people tell me what to do with my life, it’s destroying me.
“Other Side,” taken from The Other Side EP out now, is a manifesto to the world telling them that we are all done with the hate, control, racism, sexism, and dictatorship that is going on globally.
It doesn’t matter where you are from, what colour you are, or what you believe in, we are all warriors and we will fight together. We will no longer stay inside the box and keep quiet.
The Other Side EP is my first project that’s finally coming up to life and is seeing the world.
I wrote a full album of 14 tracks before this one, but trashed it for many reasons.
This project is truly me and my past experiences – feelings and emotions that I have kept for so many years. I feel a bit naked in public to let these stories into the world, but at the same time I feel a huge sense of relief.
Thanks for lending me your time,
