Better

Single By Lisa Kori



I dealt with a long illness, and everyone kept asking if I was better. I had no idea when or if I would be.

(Do you lie and say yes to placate the fears of others?)

The word became a strange mantra of sorts. The song muses about the non-linearity and ambiguity of healing, both physically and emotionally.

Healing is full of mystery.

On a practical level, since I didn’t have resources to invest in equipment, I decided to challenge myself to create the richest possible sonic world with what I already had at my disposal: a broken guitar I inherited when a close friend died, my voice, and simple production techniques on my computer.
