I’VE ALWAYS HAD A LOVE FOR MUSIC, AND ALWAYS KNEW THERE WAS SOMETHING DEEPER DOWN THAT I WANTED TO PORTRAY AS A MUSICIAN, OTHER THAN JUST ENJOYING THE THRILL OF PERFORMING. I JUST COULDN’T PUT MY FINGER ON IT.

 

SO, SWIFTLY APPROACHING THE AGE OF 18, THIS IS ME REFLECTING ON MY 18 YEARS OF LIFE FIGURING OUT WHO I AM AND WHAT HAS SHAPED ME INTO BEING MOTIVATED TO PURSUE THIS VISION.

 

WHO THE F*** AM I? WHO IS GREYSHA?

GROWING UP

I HAVE GREAT PARTS OF MY LIFE BUT THE HARD PARTS ARE WHAT MAKES US MOTIVATED FOR CHANGE.

 

I FELT VERY INSECURE AND OUT OF PLACE DURING MY PRIMARY AND EARLY SECONDARY SCHOOL YEARS, AND FROM AN EARLY AGE I WAS VERY CONCERNED WITH MY APPEARANCE, CONSTANTLY COMPARING MYSELF TO OTHERS.

I MISSED OUT ON OPPORTUNITIES BECAUSE I WAS SHY, AND THOUGHT I WAS LESS IMPORTANT THAN EVERYONE ELSE.

 

NATURALLY LOSING WEIGHT WHEN I WAS 13 CAUSED PEOPLE AROUND ME TO COMPLIMENT ME AND THIS GAVE ME ATTENTION THAT I’D NEVER HAD BEFORE.

 

I FELL INTO A PATTERN OF THINKING ‘EATING LESS = BEING VALUED MORE BY OTHERS’- WHICH IS CRAZY. I BECAME VERY THIN AND WAS STILL VERY INSECURE.

 

IT TOOK ME A YEAR AND A HALF TO GET MYSELF OUT OF A DESTRUCTIVE AND MISERABLE PATTERN WITH FOOD. I HID THIS FROM MOST OF MY PEERS AT THE TIME.

I HAVE ALWAYS STRUGGLED WITH BAD DEPRESSIVE EPISODES AND MOOD SWINGS AND ONLY NOW AM I RECOGNISING THIS AS SOMETHING THAT AFFECTS MY LIFE.

 

ALTHOUGH I AM A FUN, FRIENDLY, EXCITABLE PERSON HALF OF THE TIME, I ALSO SWING THE OPPOSITE SIDE TOO.

 

ALL THE GOOD THINGS ARE STRIPPED FROM MY MIND AND INSTEAD REPLACED WITH COLD DARK WALLS.

 

I’M SURE MANY OF YOU CAN RELATE TO THESE FEELINGS.

THESE DIFFERENT FACTORS OF MY LIFE HAVE GIFTED ME THE MOTIVATION TO PORTRAY THIS VISION.

 

THERE’S NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT TO ME IN THIS LIFE THAN CREATING ART THAT RELATES AND CONNECTS WITH OTHERS.

 

GREYSHA IS OUR DARK BEAUTY THAT MAKES US WHO WE ARE- A POWERFUL, HONEST, BEAUTIFUL SIDE THAT WE ALL HAVE.

 

GREYSHA IS ABOUT SHARING OUR STRUGGLES, FEELING TRAPPED IN FEELINGS OF LOVE, SADNESS, COMPLEX LOVE AND SITUATIONS. IT’S A COMPLEX, BEAUTIFUL MESS.

I HAVE HAD TO ACCEPT THE WAY MY BRAIN IS WIRED, AND HOW OUR LIFE EXPERIENCES SHAPE US INTO WHO WE ARE NOW.

 

THAT DOESN’T MAKE ME OR YOU ‘WEIRD’ OR ‘BROKEN’. IT MAKES US RICH OF LIFE.

 

THIS VISION IS ABOUT NOT BEING CLEAN OR PERFECT, IT IS ABOUT BEING RAW AND BOLD.

 

SO, THIS IS ME, RAW.

 

I AM ME, AND YOU ARE YOU. AND THAT’S WHO THE F*** WE ARE.

 

BE BOLD, BE RAW.
