this is a collection of 8 songs i wrote when i was 15, 16 and 17.
all of these were recorded on my laptop or iphone as a voice memo.
i was going through my soundcloud with the intention of deleting all of my older, angstier tracks that i may find embarrassing in my 20s and realized 15, 16, and 17 year old girls were relating to these particular tracks and enjoying them.
i'm making this as a way to show how i started writing songs and to inspire young musicians who want to write music but haven't had the training to play an instrument.
regardless of skill level or training, you can express yourself musically by writing thoughts down and learning some chords.
