The Woman Who Inspires Me The Most:
Maria Brink → In This Moment
I could never fully put into words how much this woman inspires me on a daily basis. It has nothing to do with the genre of music she sings. Most of all, I love her for her humanity - for the kind of person she is away from the limelight. Her perseverance throughout all of the hardships she’s faced is so inspiring to me. Her fervent belief in herself is what, to me, sets her apart from the rest. “Believe” is not just a catchy slogan that she has tattooed across her knuckles. It’s a way of life, and she lives and breathes it every single day. And it serves as a reminder to myself that I can do anything. That I have the power to manifest my own destiny.

Happy International Women’s Day!
“Whore is a really beautiful, empowering song for women. Everything that the word “whore” means, that song rebels against. That song is sarcastic. It’s kind of about learning how to let go of the power that we let other people hold over us with their words, with their belittling. Nobody can control us, nobody has the power… kind of freeing ourselves from the vulnerable, weak parts of us. When somebody calls you something demeaning or hurts you, we’re the ones letting them hurt us by letting their words be that powerful. It’s about letting go. If you listen to the words: I am the dirt you created. I am your sinner, I am your whore. But let me tell you something baby - you love me for everything you hate me for. It’s all reverse psychology. We’re going to do a really powerful charity for this song. The W.H.O.R.E. is Women Honoring One another Rising Eternally.”

In This Moment - Blood At The Orpheum: Gunshow
”Gunshow is just like, I mean - that’s just our party song. That’s like, uh, you just wanna get riled up and you’re sick and tired of things and you’re ready to run around stomping your feet, and banging your head, and slapping your friend in the face because you just need to [Ahh!] let it out and be crazy. That’s what that song’s about. It’s just "Let’s get wild tonight". Sometimes you just gotta get wild and get crazy and let it all out, so, that’s what that is.” - Maria Brink
"You can call me a sinner or a whore and hate me all you want. I don’t care.”
