“Music is always healing for me. I believe it helps me to make sense of struggles or at least close them up a bit so they don’t hurt so badly. Anytime I speak openly about all the mess I stuff inside it has less power over me. To name it and feel the struggle and pain is so powerful and healing. Art is such good medicine for working through the darkness and bringing it to the light. There is a love in giving these difficulties songs. That love truly casts out the fear.” It was such a delight to interview songstress Mara Lee Miller of Bosque Brown for our 12th issue of Cordella, Distances.
