Mental health self-awareness has been such a crucial part of my journey since my diagnosis. It’s my honor, duty, and privilege to speak to this issue insofar as I know and I can.

“Paint It Black” has always resonated with me as a cry for help. A compelling metaphor and lyrically transparent acknowledgement of what it can feel like when all is not well within. The Rolling Stones originally wrote this as a much slower, soulful song than the version that was recorded and released. I tried to tap into that soul, and found what may be a bit of folk influence in my own arrangement.
