"This song, I swear is about me."
I was driving to college one day when a song on the radio reached out to me. It put words to my feelings and made me realise that someone out there had gone through the struggles I was going through, and had lived to tell the story.
Since she first went on air towards the end of 2014, many of you have asked what "Belle of the Ball" is about. And who she is. Some of you swear it is about you, and that kind of personal connection is probably the highest compliment a songwriter could hope to receive - especially one like me who set out to write songs having had that experience myself!
Let's just say this one holds a special place in my heart. So special that it took us all this time to get this mastered version to you, fresh off Studios 301 in Sydney. Be the first to hear it here. I hope you like it as much as I do!
