“Windborne means to be carried by the wind. In the process of making this record, I found myself carried to many corners of the world, to build and rebuild homes, through love and heartbreak, to circle back to the beginning and find myself anew. These songs are a collection of stories from my life over the past few years, recorded in LA and produced by Julian “J3P0″ Pollack who has been an invaluable partner in the creation of this album, the music is a reflection of a core desire to find, follow and live in love. ” – Miranda Joan.
