For the next 11 weeks leading up to the release of Be Bold on May 5th, I'll be sending a special Behind the Music email with the story of lyrics, sneak previews, and other exclusive content. Enjoy, and please share!
"Powerful" is a song of self-affirmation, self-confidence, and resilience. When writing the lyrics, I was processing several issues. I have long struggled with being confident in taking up my own space in this world. I was also feeling the failure of my neurologic residency ending last fall due to my increased anxiety. And I was, I am, still very upset with the continued back and forth of numerous policies oppressing the many minority groups in our country (I'm a proud member of the LGBTQ community). But we always get back up. "It's time we stand up..."
Yours in music,
