Her Daunting Flame

This  song came about as a passion project of mine that I wrote about my favorite actress, Dakota Fanning. I had been going  through a difficult time in my life, feeling lost about my views  on love and overall happiness, and seeing her films, photos, and interviews really filled that hole in my heart that I was feeling all  the time. With all of these feelings, I decided to write a thank you of  sorts for her. I wrote every part out and recruited some friends of mine  to help record it. Spotify
