The need for self acceptance and healing are amongst the themes that pervade Kristen's songs. 'Fade Away' tells the story of the author disappearing into a cabin in the wilderness and reemerging with a new outlook, while the aching 'Thoughts of You' reveals the artist's inner struggle with putting her needs above the needs of others. Kristen's nuanced thoughtfulness gives these feelings space to breathe, allowing for multiple interpretations with each listen.
Kristen shows another side of herself on album highlight 'Ain't No Obstacle', a funky blues inspired ode to self confidence and progress, before closing out with the cathartic 'Home'. Anyone who has found themselves lost in thought pondering the meaning of it all will find something to relate to in Kristen's songs.
