“This album has a lot to do with, maybe, I was expected at times to really be capable of supernatural abilities.”

“As women, we have a lot of expectations placed on us to kind of shoulder the burden of the emotional weight of the whole house.”

“I’m not a sorceress and I can’t do it all, and I’m finally learning how to ask for help.”

“Moving to LA was cool because it helped me to open up a little bit, musically.”

“I started making this record in Brooklyn, New York. And the album was supposed to be done. But when I got my rough mixes back, I realized it wasn’t finished. … [I] spent four days out there, bringing it back home to Texas, to a studio that I was really comfortable in. That’s really where the record became what it is.”

“In some ways, this feels like my most Texas record. It’s like a feeling that I get from Texas, which is my home, which is a place that I know I will return to and put roots down.”
