Why is happiness so fleeting and so difficult to attain and hold onto? Why are there so many forces and tensions both inside ourselves and in the world around us, that actively oppose the very state of being we so desperately desire, namely happiness? How do we live in this contradiction, where happiness is our believed for destiny, but pain, failure and disappointment are our reality? Swiss born and world-traveled singer, lyricist, composer and arranger Sarah Buechi, uses poetic passion and intriguing soundscapes to ask those questions on this record. She resigns herself to an ongoing struggle for answers amidst life's challenges, and provides some comfort along the way as she succeeds artistically.
