Arisara's album "With Love" is a sonic journey of introspective songwriting. Sometimes classic rock, add a little psychedelia, singer/songwriter and grooveness it's an interesting twist on retro pop. The Grammy winning songwriter leaves her heart and soul out for all to feel. After listening to the album you will walk away feeling as if you know Arisara a little better. As you can tell from the first two singles "Torture Chamber" and "Time's Up" her journey entices the listener to get to know this songstress a bit better. ""Time's Up" is about taking a stand for what you deserve, knowing what you won't tolerate, feeling strong enough to trust your intution and love your self first. Enough is enough."
Other notable songs include Dreamboat, Made to Love and Canaries. About the latter she says "I wanted to write a Beatles/Pink Floyd inspired song in the session that day and Jacob Luttrell started messing around with some chord progressions and I quickly heard a melody. The first words that came out to that melody were, 'My Mother's Father sold canaries' and then I had a vision. It was clearly of the French Quarter in New Orleans and these beautiful ladies of the night were standing out on the balconies being admired. So we wrote a metaphorical song about the repentance and redemption of a New Orleans pimp. He experiences a change of heart while holding his granddaughter in his arms. It's a beautiful, fictional tale of hope and probably one of my favorite songs on the album."

These bluesy, folk-hearted elements shine through in “Torture Chamber.” It communicates with the listener with heartfelt humanity.
“'Torture Chamber' came about as I was coping with the end of a passionate relationship that meant a lot to me but was also very toxic,” writes Arisara. “It's so tough to let go, and it's particularly hard for me to admit that I can't solve something. This song is the expression of my acceptance, that sometimes letting go is the solution and the only right thing to do. Letting go is often the only way to find freedom.”
