All done remotely (they have yet to meet in person), musical ideas were passed back and forth and Holmes worked up tracks for Donna to write lyrics to. As Donna wrote, she realized each set of lyrics reflected a chapter of her past year. Originally planned as a four-track EP, it evolved into an album to capture the journey’s depth. Donna’s poignant lyrics, paired with her passionate vocals, blended perfectly with Holmes Ives’ dynamic trip hop meets alt-pop soundscapes. The result is a powerful testament to strength, gratitude, and overcoming fears.


“It is an offering of hope for anyone going through a dark tunnel. I am forever grateful to share it with you,” Donna divulged. “The instrumental tracks that Holmes Ives sent me coaxed the lyrics from the pages of my journals and inspired an album of stories, unlocking fears, and the climb to a healthier me – mind, body and spirit”.
