“In Portuguese, flor means flower. The title represents a blossoming, an opening, an offering, and a return.” says Gretchen. “Flor is the nostalgia of something familiar and the breath of something new. It’s detail, it’s listening; it’s rooted, yet growing and giving. It’s both simple and mysterious.” Gretchen continues, “My art has always reflected my life. These days, I’m finding the balance between artistic creativity and nurturing motherhood. My purpose now has both a higher and deeper meaning, and this project is a musical representation of that journey.”
