"Make It Real" features an encouraging and motivational message of taking life by the horns and realizing your hopes and dreams. Played on BBC1 on Laila Biali's radio show, the tune serves to brighten your day and give you the kick needed to start working on your dreams!
"Shape Your Light" is a love letter to children, informed by Maria's experiences as a teacher, recreation leader, and caregiver, and by Shane's experience as a loving uncle.
"Echoes" is a reminiscent promise to hold dear the memories of those passed, specifically inspired by Maria's late grandmother's struggle with dementia in her final years.
