DUST ’TIL SUN, the first single of the homonyms Ep, is born from my
desire to share a deep and intimate reflection, speaks about strength,
energy, positivity and how only by finding the courage not to close your
heart, you can rise from a moment of total darkness and pain to find
No one can do it for you; only you can choose to be happy.
Find contact with nature, see beauty in all the things that surround us and
believe in human relationships; only this way we can rebuild ourselves.
LOVE IS THE ANSWER.
