Here, the artist based in Hamilton, Ontario, talks candidly about the thoughts and experiences that went into making the record.
She told RealSoundsOK: "Good Will Rise was a difficult collection of songs for me to record, but I felt they were worth sharing with others because they speak to common experiences — depression, unrequited lust, grief, etc.
"During the process of recording a volatile mental storm hit me. One moment I was in a recording session — singing and playing a guitar into microphones — and then suddenly I was sprinting into oncoming traffic while attempting to reach a hospital. I hadn't slept for days, and it felt like I was existing in a bizarre, alternate reality. I actually believed I was a hero in a dark, computer game-like experience.
"Thankfully there was a lucid part of my brain that was still myself and knew something was really wrong,
which caused me to run for help.
"The next year was a struggle. I was diagnosed with
bi-polar disorder, was adjusting to a medicated life, and was receiving relentless phone calls from creditors because of my mounting debt.
"Eventually with the help of others, I started to learn how to take better care of myself and in the process found my true-love who stayed by my side the entire time."
