Her most recent album is The Refinery – and it’s amazing. She explains,
I spent two years writing for the new album and in the end, I picked the songs that resonated most with me and my listeners. I didn’t want this record to be perfect, I wanted to it to be real. I’m naming the record The Refinery because I look at my journey as an artist over the past two years being a refinement in a lot of ways. My refinement, though, was a gritty, darker, dirtier process, one that taught me a lot more about myself and about the deeper parts of my essence. The definition of “refinery” is to convert raw materials into something of value. For my music, I’m trying to convert the rawness of my history and who I am into something of emotional value.
Here’s to being real over perfect, and taking the time we need to refine our history into something of emotional value.
