Regarding the origins of Honest Life, she says, “While in Belgium for four months, I was going through a major heartbreak. It was a giant hurdle in my life. My first true growing pains as a woman. That’s why in a sense, I feel this record is a coming of age album. A common thread that runs through the songs, is a great desire to fit somewhere, when nowhere fits.”
