Home ~ Bravo’s soundtrack

If you’ve ever had the idea that you’re not creative; that you can’t possibly make art that’s any good, listen to the lyrics in Phillip Phillips song. This is what I’m saying to you. Come to Bravo. Take a class or two. Feel free to create, to make mistakes and to learn and grow. Make this place your home.

…Settle down, it’ll all be clear.

Don’t pay no mind to the demons

They fill you with fear.

The trouble it might drag you down.

If you get lost, you can always be found.

Just know you’re not alone.

Cause I’m gonna make this place your home…
