Breaking down the barriers that hold us back is easy when you’re identifying the external forces keeping you from what you want and where you want to be. Although looking within is much more difficult, it’s that much more rewarding. For Amare Symone, the vulnerability she was able to have with herself is what produced her new EP, “GlassWindows” and is what she credits as one of her muses during this creative journey. With songs full of yearning for self-love and love from others, to questioning and realizing that’s she’s enough, it seems that her journey of self-discovery is almost complete.
The young singer says, “The concept of GlassWindows EP, is to rediscover and acknowledge my own vulnerability in a world that tries to dehumanize me. I want to properly introduce myself to this world with all my flaws in order to be 150% vulnerable. Despite the fear of being vulnerable because one may be thought to be weak; vulnerability is brave. Through the act of exposing ideas that have been constructed into our minds from our society, I discuss topics that are often ignored, seen as irrelevant, or unattractive. I reintroduce my humanity and fearlessness to be brave and accept the person I have always been.” Take this journey with her in this 7 track EP, filled with self-love and beautifully written wisdom.
