about

This is my debut EP that was funded by a Kickstarter project I created in November of 2014. I am so so SO excited to share this with the world. This is a small collection of songs that I've written from age 15 to 22. Thank you for listening!

This project would not have been possible without the help of everyone who donated to my Kickstarter project. I wanted my first release to be as special as it could be and you all helped make it happen! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Special thanks to my family for pushing me every step of the way; The Bombaci Family; The Lennard Family; The Darla Hood Team; Skylar Carfi; Tom Hamilton; Robin T. Aubin; All of my dear friends; and thank you to every person at YPI Camp for inspiring me to become who I am and Sal Basile for helping me write my first song.

Track Name: I Dare You
Word came through, made it all crystal clear to me
Opened the door, now I'm going where I should be
It took losing you to find my inspiration,
Put my hand on my heart here's my declaration

There's no turning back, cut the anchor
I'm finding my way, force of nature
I'm giving my all try to stop me
I dare you

Set the sails, it's not the time for settling down
Looking for an adventure outside of this town
I knew I'd get lost but now it's my story
I'm lighting the fire that will burn on with glory

There's no turning back, cut the anchor
I'm finding my way, force of nature
I'm giving my all try to stop me
I dare you

When the right time comes you know it, you know it
Gotta trust your gut, just go with the current
When the waters rush embrace the excitement
It's a high-risk game but I'm going all in

There's no turning back, cut the anchor
I'm finding my way, force of nature
I'm giving my all try to stop me
I dare you
Track Name: Calling
Sat behind the wheel with no place to go but I drove off anyways
Can't stop thinking about you
Still learning how to say the right thing at the right time
No one should have to sleep alone through a cold night

When you are ready you know how to find me
Follow the sound of my voice I'm calling
It's okay to doubt this, just take one more step
And follow the sound of my voice I'm calling

It's easy to tell that pennies in wells
don't make wishes come true
Still out there searching, direction uncertain
But I'll leave a map on the bedside table
Feeling more human although it is painful

When you are ready you know how to find me
Follow the sound of my voice I'm calling
It's okay to doubt this, just take one more step
And follow the sound of my voice I'm calling
Track Name: Afraid
Thought I saw you on the sidewalk, past me in the rain
One hand in your pocket, lonesome souls going through change
Constant winds of wonder blowing through your mind
Screaming silence give me comfort when the storm rages inside
But keep the window open I’m used to being cold
Thinking about driving into the other side of the road

Have you ever been afraid, I have babe
Have you ever been afraid, I have babe

You’re the needle and the thread, sewn into my skin
Feel you, but can’t see you, all your colors blending in
Hiding deep within the forest, try to escape when I can
When it’s really pouring, stand outside and let it cleanse
But keep the window open incase the door is locked
I need some kind of shelter from the lightning till it stops

Have you ever been afraid, I have babe
Have you ever been afraid, I have babe
Track Name: Wake Up
Taking my time never seems to work out
I hope thinking things over will help

Feels like second guessing never seems to work out
Cause almost every time I’ve got it figured out
Something goes wrong, terrible wrong
And then I start to realize

Wake up I know you’re dreaming but I’ve got something to tell you
That tomorrow’s gonna be a better day
But I’m not quite sure how to say this
Maybe I’ll save it for a better day

Running around in circles always seems like such a waste of time
Maybe it’s what I really needed to figure out what’s going on in my mind

Feels like second guessing never seems to work out
Cause almost every time I’ve got it figured out
Something goes wrong, terrible wrong
And then I start to realize

Wake up I know you’re dreaming but I’ve got something to tell you
That tomorrow’s gonna be a better day
But I’m not quite sure how to say this
Maybe I’ll save it for a better day

Here I am once again blaming myself
There you are putting everyone on a shelf
I’m sorry that I broke my promise but you broke yours too
And I’m telling you that I love you

Wake up I know you’re dreaming but I’ve got something to tell you
That tomorrow’s gonna be a better day
But I’m not quite sure how to say this
Maybe I’ll save it for a better day
