My Sunny Day” is one of my favorite tracks on the album, in part because of the way it makes me feel—relaxed and ready for some lovin’! But it also holds a special place in my heart because it was inspired by something my Nana said before she passed away. She had been suffering from multiple cancers for many years. After a decade of doctors telling her she had only months left to live, her pain became unbearable, and the pain medication had a ton of negative side effects including nausea and sleeping problems.

She finally decided to try a more, shall I say, natural method of relief. One night in her living room, after a natural relief session, she told me that what she loved most about it was how “the world moves slower.” I immediately knew I would turn it into a song. We talked about a lot of things that night—one of our last together—and when she fell asleep, I holed up in my room and penned “My Sunny Day”. Nana’s gone, but her memory lives on in me and in the song she inspired.
