It emphasises the recognition that romantic partners are not essential for feeling loved or experiencing enjoyment. One can find fulfilment within oneself and must prioritise self-care.”

Words naturally flowed, and a clear vision emerged. This song marks my inaugural venture into songwriting and the music world. The recording experience was incredibly enriching, considering it was my first time using professional equipment.
Working with Mark Haze was a delight. His expertise and ease made the process comfortable for me. We dedicated a few hours to recording, and remarkably, we completed all the recording in a single day.”
