The songs for Unbroken spilled out onto the pages of notebooks, scraps of paper and screens over the past couple of years – a time of intense challenge and inspiration in my life, especially surrounding the sudden loss of my mom while spending my high school years largely isolated by the pandemic. Throughout it all, I’ve tried to find myself through this music. I started writing songs at age 12. Whenever I’d be going through something significant in my life, I would turn to my piano or guitar and start sorting through feelings of confusion, frustration or wonder and finding the words and music to give them expression. This creative process has been the one constant in my life. I hope this record can offer some glints of compassion, hope and resilience to anyone who needs them as much as I have. I’m incredibly excited to see Unbroken — a project that has existed for so long in my head — enter into the world. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed making it.
