Listen to the first single “Fade Away” 

“Fade Away” is about looking around and saying to yourself, “this isn’t good enough,” and dreaming that someday you’ll find yourself in a situation that is. I imagined this feeling of being locked in a house – either by someone else or by myself – and wanting the ceilings and walls to just disappear so that I could be free. The song is sad but hopeful – the “different day” hasn’t come yet, but I believe that it will. I dedicate the song to anyone who has ever felt trapped, held back or silenced.
