About ‘Garden Songs’
My nostalgic debut EP, Garden Songs, centres around saudade – the Portuguese word for melancholy, longing, and sadness. It signifies a return home to my family’s farm from life in the city.
In the springtime, there’s always a wall of lilacs that surrounds a part of the house and one of the first things I did when I got home was dry a little bunch of them. “Dried Lilacs,” off of the EP, was written from the perspective of looking in from the outside at my household, feeling distanced after being away for a long time.
Spending time at home with my family, friends, working on the property, and missing loved ones, are all what inspired Garden Songs. I hope you enjoy these different narratives, either from my perspective or that of a family member.
