Speaking about the inspiration behind the EP she says – “This EP is a personal statement of who I am that details my life experiences and especially in romantic relationships,” shares Winny on the inspiration behind her debut project. “This is an introduction into my sonic range; as well as my personality. The inspiration for this project came from my journey and experiences through different relationships. My message for the EP is acknowledging and highlighting the range of emotions you feel from being in love with someone — including the times when you start to feel like your love isn’t reciprocated. Also, to prioritize loving and taking care of yourself; never forgetting who you are, where you come from and appreciating your journey and personal growth.”
