Chasing Pandora Two
My mind was totally set on our debut album 'Mocking the Mocking Bird'. I thought "This has to be it - I can't do any better than that". But then life showed me that it has it's ironic twists. As I was promoting and performing the album, I found out i was pregnant and I thought "Oh well, it was nice having this experience but I think it's over for me". With the beginning of 2008, life showed me otherwise. The birth of my daughter gave me incredible courage and insight and a positive energy I've never felt before. I felt that this is my calling - I can't hide no matter what - I was born to this - No matter what obstacles I had to face I wasn't going to throw it all away. Being in Chasing Pandora was not only being the songwriter/vocalist it was a learning experience - One that made me grow from the strange moody goth girl from Gozo, into someone with a mind and a vision and an opportunity to spill it out. I've had a whole 22 years of education but I've never learnt a thing. Everything I know I've learnt in the past 2 and a half years of Chasing Pandora. It never felt better than today. The music has always put me in a different place, but now I feel like I've reached that 'special' place. The place where I have always wanted to be. This is my kind of Nirvana. I can't say that I don't get nervous being on stage in front of an audience, but becoming this person with something to say, this person who overcame being a shy girl, I look forward to everything - the nerves, the adrenalin rush onstage, and the years to come with Chasing Pandora where I could look back and be happy that I'm growing old, knowing that was my life, one of expression, love, freedom, words and music.
