Stretch marks. Yes ladies, I went there! It's not pretty, nor is it sexy.
The thing is, very few things in life are... Life is beautiful, not pretty. What makes it worth living are the heartaches, the triumphs, the losses, the wins. Those things that stretch you, push you beyond your limits, spark the fire in you to want to be better, stronger, wiser, to spread your wings and fly. That's what makes life... well, life.
In the year that I wrote this album, I was stretched in so many ways. I love it because it's real, it's my life and all the painful growth I've experienced put to lyrics and music. Not everything in here is PC, buttery, flowery, but everything is real: real love, friendship, hurt, loss, frustrations.
I hope that through "Stretch Marks" you can discover that there is beauty in imperfection. And learn to embrace it as I have... :)
