In 2012, my wife Jenny and I wrote a song called “The Girl I Am,” inspired by my experiences of passive-aggressive bullying which deeply affected me during my formative years. Excited by the community that quickly rallied around the song, my management team, Cadenza Artists, began surveying the artists on their roster, asking them if they’d ever had experiences similar to mine.
