“Singing and playing the guitar is really just therapy for me, and what I consider to be a healthy addiction.
It’s been the chance for me to discover what my heart feels, and to express those feelings. I find the more honest and open I can be, the more I connect with others.
We humans are so similar in many ways. Performing gives the audience and myself the confirmation that we are not so alone in our hardships as well as in our joys, and all the other complex emotions we experience.” ~ Martha Reich
