Blue Wooden Boat Music Video

“‘Blue Wooden Boat’ is about having the courage to escape a situation that’s not healthy for you, even if walking away is painful, even if it means you hear bad things about yourself. I wrote this song about escaping family violence and abuse. It’s about feeling like you’re alone and then finding out you’re not.” – Aminah talking with Scenestr music magazine, 2018
