“The piece of work I have created for the Shelter Commissions Program is an original song, called Vain. It is about moving on. The main inspiration for this song is personal growth and taking the time to listen to myself during quarantine.
It’s such an honour to be a part of the Shelter Commissions Program. It’s a great way that I can share my art and showcase my creative process through a time where I can’t do many live performances.”
