I was in the dark for a bit then came back to the light. I decided to pursue my own band project alongside my current bands. My brother was a persistent, though sometimes unknowing, advocate for me to go solo with my music. From his 16 year old comment outside my 12 year old bedroom door “Oh. Wow. It’s you. I was listening in the hall and thought it was the radio but it’s you singing and playing guitar”.
Though Kent had many humorous comments, on my various bands, he enjoyed and supported them.
Kent always felt my creative voice needed to be heard.
So “because i said i would” is a homage to Kent, my brother, for his undying belief in my voice, as well as his, and Candace’s, ongoing support when it felt very dark.
It’s also a nod to me for my courage to step out of the dark and start a solo project.
