I wrote Forward without holding back, in a very organic way. I wanted to be honest and raw in my writing. I wanted to work through the hardships, the adversity and the struggles to find new meaning, peace and healing. It’s about taking the nonsense and making something beautiful out of it.” - Liana
For this debut album she surrounded herself creatively with writing partner Dominique Plante (co-writing, production, guitars), and her musicians Gabriel Desjardins (keyboards), Marc-Antoine Genest Petitclerc (bass), Pierre-Emmanuel Beaudoin (percussion) and Matthew Weiss(mix/mastering).
With her experience at La Voix and her DIY approach to her first EP Liana is honing in on her sound and image. “Forward” is a musical amalgamation of her journey and invites us to explore her world.
