Andrea Ramolo - s/t Canadian New

Andrea, who lives in Toronto, is one half of Scarlett Jane, a project she shares with Cindy Doire.

In Andrea's words:
"This time of year is hard for many people. The days seem like they want to explode with mixed feelings of joy, regret, and memories of things lost or left behind. I'm lucky enough to have an incredible family and dear friends to share in my life's journey and walk with me through these times... but not everyone is as fortunate. This song is about loneliness and goes out to anyone who is feeling lost and on the peripheries this holiday season. Know that we all share in this feeling and that you really are not alone. Sending out love to you all, for the holidays and always."

"At some point we all have a negative voice inside our head and with depression it becomes a little too loud!

"Ignite" is about listening to that little, much quieter voice that says,

"No, you are really good, you are beautiful, maybe you can do this."

The lyrics are amplifying the little voice telling you, "You can do this."

With the lyric "It will come to you in time," I am telling myself it will, though sometimes I have a really hard time trusting that.

You have to believe in your inner voice. No amount of advice can ever help you if you don't listen to yourself.

So, when you're in it, hang on, don't give up and do not trust everything you are telling yourself. We wrote "Ignite" as a message saying that the pain will pass and you can absolutely ignite your soul, no matter how bad it's gotten. I firmly believe that and I want to share that with every person going through depression or heartache.
