Brave was inspired by a woman not being fully heard or appreciated. It speaks of the hidden depths of women how they are not just the label or name they are given they are more, they are brave. Being silenced and isolated is a big part of domestic abuse. I wanted to give a voice to women through my music so I have also made a video for this song featuring myself and other women laying bare phrases or labels which have held us back and how we transcend these.
I have chosen to link this song to Women's aid who are a UK charity working to end domestic abuse against women and children. Domestic abuse is a violation of women and their children’s human rights. It is the result of an abuse of power and control, and is rooted in the historical status and inequality of women in in society.
Women's Aid have been at the forefront of shaping and coordinating responses to domestic violence and abuse through practice for over 40 years. They empower survivors by keeping their voices at the heart of their work, working with and for women and children by listening to them and responding to their needs.
