Inspirational Quotes
From Our Interviews

"Music has always been able to deal with very tough issues without having to use your voice to do it, so it makes it something that's easily translatable and something that's not as abrasive to people when they're trying to receive a message."

"My purpose is to empower the future generations of women who want to work in sports, and who are interested in jobs like that. And so, if that’s my purpose, then I have to do it. I don’t have a choice. It’s no longer a choice of mine; it’s my job."

"I think there are lots of people out there who feel the same as I do and it's difficult to do, but I feel that sharing our experiences of loneliness may serve as a means of connecting all of us. We need to connect and take the chance to help someone else."

"Sometimes you get your heart set on something and then it doesn't work out and later on you say it was the best result anyway."

"Once I got out into the community and I saw what I could do as an African-American female officer, serving in the community, it changed my view."

"What society can learn from the NFL and sports is that you can get along with anybody no matter what color your skin ... you know it's just being nice to a person. Do onto others as you'd have them do onto you. You know, being nice to someone is not hard."

Music is always going to be there, but you never know if family or people... you never know who's going to come and who's going to go.  I think it's important to just be or try to be present when you're with the people you love.

"I've had that kind of success that you can have as a young person and it's great and I'm glad I survived it and I'm glad I still being creative and be able to talk to people like you."

"I've understood that, basically, you can never judge a book by its cover.  By that, I mean people.  You never really know somebody and you know that people will always surprise you." 

"I think moving forward you got to find the beauty in the way women play (basketball) and see that game differently and not see it as we view men's sports."

"As I get older, I don't hold on so tight.

It doesn't have to be so precious.

It doesn't have to be perfect."

Think about it! Thirty years later

we travelled five thousand miles from Seattle to Portugal, to discover something new, musical influences from half a world away. 

"Spending time making music with your bandmates knowing that it isn't going to be commercial or popular or even entertaining is in its own way political."
