Speaking of her single, the Canadian singer/songwriter explains: “I’m often the person who speaks her mind, who knows who she is and who stands up for what she believes in. I’ve always had a strong voice and while those qualities are encouraged in theory, in practice, not so much. No, I don’t always say it right and yes, I can get emotional, I’m not perfect but my heart is always in the right place.”

‘Not Perfect’ is the third song off the EP, baring the same name, which includes her previously released songs ‘Good Girl’ (2018) and ‘I Will Never Know’ (2019). The three songs tell a story of moving from powerlessness to uncertainty to perseverance.
