“My music is about surviving devastation through the beauty of creation. There is beauty in sadness, suffering, and pain as well. Once there is acceptance of these feelings and emotions, the beauty can be revealed. We do not need to push away or ignore tragedy or great loss or trauma. If we can accept it, not be enslaved or imprisoned by it, and eventually overcome the devastation, the true beauty reveals itself.”
