Collaboration is the beginning of some form of a relationship. So every relationship that you have with someone in life is different.

But the important thing is that when I decide to create and then put something out there, that it will come from that honest place, because I do believe that when someone receives it, I very much hope that they feel that honesty and that truthfulness will make their insides move. And whatever’s happening with them will just open up. Because if I’m here an open vessel, it’s an immediate invitation for you to be that, however it is that it is, with yourself. And I feel that once you feel it, then it just sticks onto whoever’s next to. So we create this family or this community of connecting to one another, and I do it through music. That is that.
