Hey Kells, just want to say thanks for your music it helps me get through so much. I had a very bad childhood because my mum (who I don't even call my mum anymore) is an asshole and left me when I was 7 years old. She's been to jail so many times, and dad's even worse. I was 4 when he left me and I barely remember him. My granddad was born in Cleveland, where he met my grandma but moved to Australia just after they got married. Cleveland blood all the way! You're an inspiration, and I can relate to you in so many ways: Rolling papers, Blue dream, got high and went into town, didn't end to well haha. Enjoy life while it lasts.

I am a huge fan and I just thought it would be really cool to hear you do some covers of older songs like 'So happy together'. Everything you do is amazing and right now is probably the hardest period of my life and your music helps me make it through the day.Not only your music but I've seen you in movies and you are just amazing! I love you and even if you dismiss my suggestion I'll always be a huge fan.
