This collection of feelings and chords help to describe the way I've been living for the past year. Releasing these songs is a liberation and purification of my heart so please, be careful with these items that are so unbelievably dear to me. I can only hope that making myself this vulnerable is to be seen an act of bravery, and not at all a cry for help.
To My Family Reading This,
I am transgender. I am not a boy, I am not a girl. I hope to go on testosterone in the near future. I hope you decide to aid me in this.
Thank you Fia for being here for everything these songs are about. Thank you for caring always. This album would have never happened without you.
Thank you Danny for really knowing me more than I know myself sometimes. You are my lifeblood and the best best friend I could ask for.
Thank you to my loving partner Melanie, for telling me all these songs are good when they were just a conglomerate of recordings on my phone. And for your endless support and love. Healing with you always.
Thank you mom, Ruby Joy, Damon, Zan, Jem, Sam, and Liz. Thank you Holden, Fletcher, and Zach for supporting me through the recording process. Thank you to everyone else who helped me feel more comfortable than I could ever imagine in this life. I have so much growing to do, and so much work to do. I will never leave and I will hold on to all of you as tightly as my small calloused hands can manage.
