"Blue, songs are like tattoos
You know I've been to sea before
Crown and anchor me
Or let me sail away"
-- Joni Mitchell, Blue
I remember the first time I heard Joni Mitchell. I was 8. I had the feeling of coming home after a long trip, like she had introduced me to myself for the first time. As a teenager, other female folk singers and musicians like Kimya Dawson, Tracy Chapman, Nora Jones, Amy Winehouse and many others would have a profound impact on me. My first EP "Fire Alarm" is a tribute to all of them, but especially Joni whose vulnerability showed me that popular music can be brave, honest and tender all at the same time. I really hope you enjoy it!
