SHARE WITH US AN INTERESTING ANECDOTE ABOUT ONE OF YOUR SONGS.

‘Ladlands’ (from the debut album ‘Watch Me Break Apart’) is about the fear of losing control of what you believe in, what you believe is wrong and right in the world. The idea that so many people all simultaneously experience that feeling when coming from opposing views is interesting to me. The intensity and dedication at which people fight their corner, yet on all sides of politics, culture and society, many people feel like they are losing control.
