This is my favourite song I've ever written. It was seen during the Hollywood week Solo rounds, which became the end of my journey on American Idol. I am thrilled to have been able to fulfill the audio vision I have fine-tuned in my head and heart for so long. Multilayer harmonies and percussive guitar, emotional vocals, written by me. I told the producer of the track, Aaron Ackerson, that in my head there are complex violin and stand-up bass parts, and he added some simple string synth and bass which I think supports the song structure well. The percussive noise that is heard is me slapping the acoustic guitar. I truly hope you enjoy this project which is so close to my heart.


"The Time is here...
it feels good
to hold my head up
and get out of it
I've said it be fore
and I'll say it again...
What You're made of isn't broken

Carrier Pigeon
I know that You're listenin'
and I know that you carry my heart
Delve into the Rabbit
Into the Rabbit hole
and return with a solid goal

Mountains move
with each thing You do
I'm okay now with the truth
I'm flyin' on a cloud...

'cuz I'm in Love
with Your mystery
can't wake up
from this dream
I'm flyin' on a cloud


I've said it before and I'll say it again
What You're Made of isn't broken
