I was a shy, insecure 14 year old. Music had become my escape and my step dad gave me his cd collection. But he pulled out one album and said, “Before anything else, listen to this.” It was Sing the Sorrow. And it changed my life. The moment the drums of Miseria Cantare hit, it inspired me to live a life that wouldn’t be defined by anyone or anything except who i wanted to be. I found myself in StS. Thank you, Afi.
