00 Where The Heart Heals Art.png

A collection of songs written by me, Katherine Schimke, lead vocalist of Darling Hill. Written during my time of recovery from the loss of my father, a nasty divorce, alcoholism, and domestic violence. All written while healing deep in the New England woods in a cabin on stilts on Darling Hill Road. Coincidentally, before I lived on Darling Hill, the road happened to be where the most traumatic act of violence occurred. On one end of Darling Hill, I was assaulted and held against my will until I finally “broke free” and escaped on the other end at which I now reside. Hence the title of the 2023 EP Where The Heart Heals and the title of track  #3 Break Free.
