Hauntings of pain, sorrow, love, redemption growth, mortality, becoming, and connection family an album that whispers secrets with poignant power. Sora’s experience as a counsellor and recent completion of a Masters of Counselling is glimpsed in her delicate examinations of power, identity, and the legacy of abuse.
