Personal Note from Lena Elizabeth:
“Get It Right” is an album that is deeply personal to me. I can’t tell you how excited and yet scared I am to share this record. It scares me because each of these songs leaves me feeling exposed and vulnerable. That is also why I’m so excited about it. It’s me. It’s my story.
I have struggled with crippling anxiety, depression, an eating disorder, and generally beating myself up. Through those struggles I have learned to ask for help, found love and with that learned to love myself again. Channeling all of this into music has given me confidence and a voice to tell myself, I am enough.
In this album I am letting it all hang out. All the pain and self-doubt. All the fear, and anger. All the grief, joy and LOVE! I’m ready to share this with you. Thank you for listening to my story.
