I was asked why I decided to name this album “Mirrors" and what was the inspiration behind the title? When I look back on my life I see a lot of running. Running towards a goal...running to avoid being left behind...running towards someone...running away from someone. I feel like I have reached a point where running is no longer an option. I have reached a place where there is nothing but mirrors surrounding me and reflecting back to me all the choices I have made until now. Sometimes it's easier to keep focused on what lies ahead rather than what you’ve left behind but it does catch up to you eventually…and this is where I am. Facing a lifelong journey of exciting adventures, difficult decisions, milestones. So where does this fit in with song-writing? It’s how I can communicate honestly with the world. The way I can say everything I’ve wished I could say to certain people in my life but never had the chance. It’s the way I can say the things I really feel to be true but never had the courage. It’s the way I can look in the mirror and be at peace with where I have been, where I am now, and where I am headed next. I hope my stories resonate with others who have been in similar situations. We all experience love, heartbreak, joy, pain, life and death. We all have so much in common and sharing our experiences is a powerful way to connect with others. We are all living our own story. This is mine.
