Weaves & Music

It was difficult as a child because I had never really seen, like, women of colour be in a rock band. I hadn’t seen myself represented. I think subconsciously, when you don’t see it, you don’t think it can happen. I always had this rebellious side of me though that was like, “I’m gonna do it.” We were playing a show in New York and I came off stage. These young girls came over, and we just all started crying. They saw themselves in me, and I, I felt like I saw myself in them. It was just this really beautiful moment of connection. And you see that there is power in representation.
