“Alone on the Moon remix by Urban Exploration”
“Prophecy” pays tribute to the wisdom of youth. The young help me to question everything I ever thought to be true. I shot this stop-motion animation with a care bear from my childhood.

“Alone on the Moon” was written as a reminder to seek my own true path within, to take responsibility for my feelings and to live life authentically. Lauren captured this moment of my giving myself a pep talk at the beginning of our photoshoot for the album artwork on my debut album.
