about

In 2016 I left Los Angeles to follow a beckoning call from New Orleans, Louisiana.
There, I began writing my third EP: 6.
I arrived in New Orleans broken hearted, descending into madness. Many nights were spent faced with the same voices and visions I had been fighting and suppressing my entire life. After many botched relationships with “medical professionals” and prescription drugs, I decided to go against the doctors orders.

I would no longer resist the darkness, but instead, surrender to it.

Society has created a culture around fear of darkness. This is reflected in our treatment of women and black and brown bodies, our resistance to silence, our fear of death, our disassociation with the moon, and our continued rape of Earth.

6 is my journey into the darkness, the black, into my SELF. Far away from the white light we have historically revered and deep into the waters from which we came. 6 is the God I found inside of myself and how She healed me.

To my listener,
May you find solace in this record. May you find the freedom to dance in the chaos and heal in the silence. Like the caterpillar who must cocoon into itself before evolution, may you find beauty in the Black and safety in its warm, comforting arms. May you be empowered by your sun kissed skin, by your sexuality, by your divine femininity. There is a woman inside all of us who has laid dormant for far too long. May you find the courage to awaken her, for she is power.

To embrace darkness is to embrace the unknown, reconnect with your ancestors, hone your magic and most importantly; embrace your self.

There is a power that lies deep within all of us - deep in the dark.

Thank you New Orleans — your terrain and your inhabitants— for showing me the beauty of the black. Thank you to mi mama, my creator, who carried me in her darkness, who on the 6th day of November, showed me light.
This album is dedicated to you.

Track Name: Leave Me In The Ground
I swear I'll never teach a man how to love himself again
just leave me in the ground...
where I am home,
where I can stay,
just me and my sins,
safe on my own.

I swore I'd never be the kind fo woman who'd try and fix you
desperate for happiness
now I'm that woman
that desperate woman
that childish woman
that lying woman
woman
woman
woman

You made me high. You made me so high.
Now watch me fly to my demise...

I told you my best company's made of me and my bones
so leave me int he ground...

Didn't I tell you the dirt was my home?
Didn't I tell you the land is where I grow?
Bury me amongst the other crones on my sand castle throne.
On my sand castle throne.

I swore I'd never be the kind of woman who'd try and save you
desperate for happiness...
now I'm that woman
that desperate woman
that childish woman
that lying woman
woman
woman
woman

You made me high. You made me so high.
Now watch me fly to my demise...

Oh let me forget, oh oh oh, just let me forget, oh oh oh,
let me forget, oh oh oh, just let me forget, no no no

Bury me, bury me, bury me in the ground
Bury me, bury me, bury me in the ground
Bury me, bury me, bury me in the ground
Bury me, bury me, bury me in the ground....

Oh let me forget, oh oh oh, just let me forget, oh oh oh,
let me forget, oh oh oh, just let me forget, no no no
Track Name: Stay With Me
Don't let me get ahold of myself
I don't mind falling back in your arms
keep toughing me, feel on my skin
I swear I'll never know love again

Stay with me.

Stay with me in this moment
give your energy
lift me with your emotion
heal me with chemistry
you say we can't be broken
can't live in no memory
but I call this shit devotion like the last time you're gonna sing Amen

Stay With Me

Don't walk away
stay here with me
breathe in my arms
breathe in me

Can't you have some sympathy?
Bet you love me on my knees
begging give me breath to breathe
so I can sing this eulogy
I can give you what you need
if you give your arms to me
hold me tight and stay with me like it's the last time
you gonna see me again...

Stay with me, I want you to stay with me.
Stay with me, I want you to stay with me.
Stay, Stay...

Stay with me

I need to tell you something...
Track Name: Break Your Jaw
ooo baby I need you close to me
I've been grinding my tongue since you've been away...
I only speak truth
God gave me a mouth so I could eat you

Make a meal of me I said
Make a meal of every inch of me
Break Your Jaw on my bed
Swish your tongue in every part of me

oooo take a sip from the river where I came
then taste your lips to know the taste of prayer
bury me in you...
And not more trying to describe how it feels
I don't know, I don't know
just keep on coming now deep in me

Make a meal of me baby
Make a meal of every inch of me
Break Your Jaw on my bed
Stick your tongue in every part of me

Every part of me...

Let's build a home for eachother
lets spin a web on this bed
where we can drink from another
suck me dry till I'm dead...

Build a home in me.

no

idontwannawriteyoualovesong

cause if i do

all we've ever had's not a secret

people'l think they know so they'll sing it

but they'll sing it out of tune...

and I guess thats why

and I guess that's why I'd rather sing alone

Cause then you're mine
causethenyouremine
causethenyouremine
thenyoure
thenyoure

Track Name: I Release You
I burnt a candle for you on account of the moon
to exercise from my heart past lovers due
and ima get you out
no, this body is no longer your playground
so get out, move one, get your anchor out of here...

I wrote each name on tiny scraps of paper
but of course yours was the biggest
(cause you're the biggest)
and I watched them all burn till it came down to you...
could it be that I'm still weak?
Prisoner to your company
I can't, I can't keep you in my mind.

I release you.

Burn a candle for you, sanctify by this bind
black hole through my brain, black hole through my mind.
Cause I don't want this no more
the pain that you left's a bad memory
that's taking up all of my energy
so give me back all of my body
yes, this is my body...

I watched the flame burn and savor you
reminds me how I used to savor you too
and as the ash fell down and stained up my skin
I felt my spirit rise anew to live all over again...

Espíritu set me free
repair my broken wings so I can fly into the sky
leave my body behind

I Release You.
I Release You.
I Release You
I Release you.

I Release You.
I Release You.
I Release You.
I Release You.
