“Tell me a story of struggle that either you went through, or you witnessed someone go through. I only ask that you make it real.” This is the prompt I gave the artists and asked them to write their songs based off of it. I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Solomon Dixon, Taylor McNamara (Maviii), Emily Madigan (Rose) and Julian Perez (Babyface) for giving each track 110%.
