About this project

HOWL is a song written about being a young female in society and how difficult it is to live in the lines of modern day culture.  

The music video is an animation directed by Ivan Ives.  It is a reflection of the little girls journey as she travels through a world she doesn't fit in, yet seems to find a way out by following the lessons of the wolf totem medicine and her connection to the moon (her intuition). 

The lessons of the spirit animal (The Wolf), in Native American culture represents a pathfinder. Someone who will sacrifice their so call safe pack-like surroundings, to be the lone wolf and explore new territory.  The wolf has a strong sense of family but is very much an individual.  The wolf also teaches us to trust our insights and is extremely sensitive and tough.  The little girl follows the moon (her intuition) through this journey in order to take her to where she needs to be.  In the end, this little girl metaphorically uses this spirit animal lessons and lessons of the intuition to help to find and create a new world for herself.

This transformative journey of the little girl resonates with me very deeply. There were many moments in my childhood where I had to raise myself in my own way.  I had to escape and find a way out to discover what felt more real and right for me.
