“Music has always been the most important part of my life. I grew up with loud music everywhere. My dad would play it so loud you’d think he was still a teenager. I wrote my first song when I was 5 1/2 years old. Although I was pursuing acting for many years, people telling me I couldn’t do both music and acting, songwriting was my steady anchor in life. It was an emotional outlet for me in difficult times. My songs come from personal experiences and vulnerable places. They are authentic and raw and I therefore find it scary to share sometimes. But since teaming up with producer Frank Stone, who let me explore different sides of my voice, I finally found who I am musically. Which brought me to a place where I’m happy to share my songs with the world. It’s an exciting new chapter in my life.” – Frida Farrell
