“We know writing can be cathartic. Doing it in song can also take emotional courage. That’s the take from vocalist Kelly Thomas’ CD of original songs – all honest, heart-wrenching and therapeutic – as she writes of personal pains, triumphs, break-ups and addictions. She has never released a full CD based on her own writing until now. Thomas lets loose with a searing emotional journey right from the first track on “Hard Winter,” a foreboding slow-burn epic. It’s followed by the title cut, perhaps expressing the album’s theme, “I want to fly high above my fears.” There are broken relationships of bands and boyfriends, loved ones lost to drugs, and the wrongs that friends inexplicably do to do friends. Thomas admits to “picking some scabs” to find the emotional honesty.”
