Although, there is a good chunk of songs that deal with heartbreak, this album is really about finding your anchor, finding the strength to pick up the pieces after things don't quite turn out the way you plan, accepting the curve balls that life throws our way, learning the lessons, and rising above it all to see the very best of any situation. I'm very intuitive, so I would say I knew something was up. My song, “I was Gonna Marry You” is the answer to that.I'm very sensitive to changes and energy in relationships even when the other person is putting on a good face.

You wrote your album Cedar + Gold when your former fiancé Jason Mraz ended your engagement – was it cathartic for you to write? I like to joke that my record label actually put me through therapy by allowing me to make this album.
Initially I was frustrated & for a long time I was very sad. I think in the past I have definitely been accused of telling my partner that they should be more like this, or more like that.
But one day I had a thought: I don't want to be with someone that doesn’t want to be with me, I wanna be with someone that can't get enough of me!!! I've learned that you can't change people. These days I am all about communication and checking in with myself to make sure I am being 100% my wacky, anxious, goofy, emotional self.
The song ‘Glass Jar’ on my record pretty much sums that up.
How have you – or have you – been able to move forward? And it has been an amazing opportunity to just appreciate someone for who they are, and who they are not.
