Senior Project in Music:


This album is a culmination of everything I’ve learned in my time at Brown. College did not go anything like I expected. I took online classes for a year and a half due to the pandemic and struggled a lot with my mental health. I lost my dad and childhood dog during the second semester of my Junior year. The songs on this album explore themes including loneliness, grief, depression, and social justice. The album is to be completed by November 2023.
