Groovy Daughter isn’t afraid to speak up and share her stories, because if we don’t try and let people understand. How do we let them help? She finds inspiration comes from Film Scores, Composer like Hans Zimmer and Kyle Dixon give her an overwhelming amount of emotion and inspiration when she listens to their pieces, as we do when we listen to hers.

Reboot is a plea, from the deepest parts of our brain. It describes the desperation of wanting to just restart. Reboot a mind that’s been infected. It’s About the struggle to find balance in life, overcompensating for black moods, not quite portraying happiness and excitement in a natural way. The idea for reboot cake from a line in the movie shutter islander island.

“I was taken aback by how accurate it depicted what it felt like to slip into the depths of mental illness.”
