“Writing these songs was the most beautiful and heartbreaking process I think I’ve been through,” Stewart says. “I’ve poured so much emotion into this EP, and it captures so many vulnerable moments from my life, with if you only knew being one of the heaviest. As a songwriter, it’s really cathartic to be able to share this story, and my only hope is that it helps people who might be struggling in their own ways.”
