"I wrote “Wanderer” during the summer after my freshman year of college in Boston. It was a new and foreign place for me, and the big city made me feel small. When I chose to make a video, I knew I wanted it to be in an urban setting. I knew I wanted motion, something with tension and release. The final aesthetic came about collaboratively with my team: lights, dancers, a stairwell, a rooftop and the New York cityscape.

"This song is about a wanderer (me), searching through life for a home. This is the catalyst song for all my years of having to adjust to different cultures and surroundings, of suffering depression through college, of searching for love...It is the little bohemian ode to my wandering soul, my overly sensitive and melancholic self. It is dramatic, but I’m an actress ☺

"It’s another 6/8 song, a bit of a waltz. It swings and swirls, yet stays to the steady stomping of the beat. This song has followed me through the last five years and can fit any scenario in my life. It is the truest representation of ME in a song."
