“I hope it can help other people heal and realize that even though the story behind the song might be painful, the fact that all of these songs are coupled with a happier beat, it can provide a way to heal and dance to something that was once traumatic and heavy.”Claire Ridgely on her brand new EP, “Flowers for a Friend”.
