GABY MORENO ON “SOLID GROUND”:

“’Solid Ground’ is a song that talks about exhaustion, uncertainty, and longing for stability. Feelings that are deeply ingrained within our human experience. Ultimately, I think it reminds us of our vulnerability and the complexities of our existence but it also grants us the peace of mind and freedom to pursue whatever we want from this life.”
