Driven by her evocative lyrics and melodies, « Gold Star » takes audiences on a transcendent voyage of introspection and exploration, underscored by the symbolism of tarot cards signaling new beginnings and the courage to embrace uncertainty.

She is an artist that gives voice to the voiceless, hope to the weary
