„Before I was signed, I just wanted to get into the system, even though I didn't know what that meant.“

—  Sophie B. Hawkins American musician 1967
Context: Before I was signed, I just wanted to get into the system, even though I didn't know what that meant.

I fought and fought to maintain my identity and grow as an artist at the same time, but when I realized that to get their support on Timbre I'd have to start working with schlocky writers and totally sell out, I decided to pack up my marimba and split.
