My first music video! I can’t thank Zen Ritual enough for their creative vision in producing “I’ll Not Weep,” the first song from my EP “Songs in the Dark.” I have always dreamed of someday collaborating with videographers to evoke the feelings and atmosphere I had in mind for the music I was creating. The whole process was really fun and it gave me an opportunity to step outside of my comfort zone, remove myself from the composer role and be open to what Allen and Petrina envisioned for the film. I look forward to many more collaborations with them!

“Stanzas” by Emily Brontë
I’ll not weep that thou art going to leave me,
There’s nothing lovely here;
And doubly will the dark world grieve me,
While thy heart suffers there.
I’ll not weep, because the summer’s glory
Must always end in gloom;
And, follow out the happiest story—
It closes with a tomb!
And I am weary of the anguish
Increasing winters bear;
Weary to watch the spirit languish
Through years of dead despair.
So, if a tear, when thou art dying,
Should haply fall from me,
It is but that my soul is sighing,
To go and rest with thee.
