“Music has been my favourite way of making sense of the world around me for as long as I can remember. No matter what I was feeling, I could put on a song and instantly feel like I was part of a community of people that understood where I was at that moment. I write in hope that I can provide that sense of community for someone else.” – Josh Taerk.
