“I learnt early on, that words hold weight and stories have power. 
For the past 3 years since the release of my first music mixtape, I have grown + learnt about myself and my community.

My next release is a body of work named marrow; it will be released as a sequence of work centred on my own + others journeys of healing + being made alive again.

Its limbs are:
- a book of poetry + prose
- my first music EP
- a second short film

My inspiration for naming this work comes from my understanding of it: The essential part. The bare beginning of everything.
Our bone marrow is where our blood cells - which sustain our life - are generated. Without blood, we are not alive.

It translates to the idea of soul work, nourishment + deeper fulfilment. To womanhood + the feminine experience + our capacity to sustain, nourish, empower, give life, destroy + heal.

I hope this work finds you, exactly as and where you are.”
