“Blueprint is a little sketch of how I’m experiencing the weight of the world. My music is meant, to relate, to accept, to shed and to heal all negative feelings/thoughts that the mind can capture. My creations are about feeling and becoming one with every emotion that is running inside, in order to rise up and become the best version of yourself.” - Calya J.
