about

Better was the last song I wrote for the album. It's an important one to me because it's stretched my ability to write and perform in an exposed and vulnerable way. It may as well just be a page from my diary put to music. Every word and every piano note came straight from inside me and I think that's special.

I chose to shoot a studio video because the song demanded it. I had some reservations about what singles to choose leading up to the album release later this year because the album is so varied. It covers so many emotions and complexities in production, I was worried that putting out a simple song wouldn't fully reflect the depth of my work to come, but in the end I always have to be true to my instinct and my life journey. Better is the song for right now, it 100% reflects where I've been the last year and also where I'm going. It's a song of resilience, confidence and certainty. It's a song I'm extremely proud of.
