Every song on this album addresses a different aspect of love from a different emotional plane or mindset. The songs travel musically through various genres, from indie rock to soundtrack, from electronic or classical cross over to singer songwriter, all bound together by the underlying theme BORN FOR LOVE. The common denominator are my vocals and my violins. Some songs are as old as my kittens, others as old as my beloved children. Listen to the whole album and you may find your favorite sonic companion for your own specific situation (topic related songs in brackets). If you are on the verge of standing up for yourself, about to go your own way or leave an abusive relationship or situation (Born For Love, Wings Across The World), going through a phase of loss and mourning, remembering a loved one (Swear, A 1000 Stars), searching for higher love (Forever Be Love, Show Me Your Heart, To Love Or Not To Love), feeling unconditional love, empathy, compassion for children, animals, the world (Please, Forever Be Love), love for peace, humanity (We Are The Ones, Winter Days, To Love Or Not To Love, Forever Be Love), letting go and stepping into self love (Born For Love, Forever Be Love, To Love Or Not To Love) or asserting your own girl self (Princesses Really Fly, Sunflowers), looking for real joyful love (Sunflowers), feeling romantic love (Love, Jewels) or the freedom aspect of (self)love (Born for Love, Wings Across The World, Princesses Really fly, Free) – this album offers you a musical journey that takes you through it all.
