I think that for young sad girls on the internet to hear another sad girl their own age being really productive and making songs is a positive influence. Instead of just being depressed, do something with that depression. I hope people hear my songs and realize that writing music is kind of easy. Or that taking your sadness and turning it into a beautiful song is worthwhile.Prodigious 19-year-old singer/songwriter Greta Kline—aka Frankie Cosmos—is our latest Rising act.

I turn them into poems.
I turn them into stories.
