“Going” in video

It’s a total honor to have one of my songs be a part of Soyoung L. Kim’s video for her upcoming solo exhibit, “Marks of the Displaced.” This stunning video was directed, filmed, and edited by the brilliant Alesha Gunn. “Going,” written by myself and Lee Payne, plays underneath. Enjoy and make sure to check out Soyoung’s exhibit!
