"There's a reason the Feminine Spirit has been so feared + repressed - not just in women, but across all genders. Her essence is a powerful force, one of unconditional love + acceptance, one that can open all doors and break down any barrier. As I allow her essence to live through me more + more fiercely, my songs become prayers + mantras that serve to remind me who I Truly Am. My intention is that they'll have the same effect on my audience - providing a felt sense of presence + unconditional acceptance." 

- Claire Mortifee on Compassion In A Kiss single, released with Battered Women's Support Services
