Ack, I am so super excited to finally get to share this final music video of my original song, SUPERHERO (Under A Mask) created for the Punto Art Museum and the North Shore CDC to help raise awareness around vital public safety information, through art and music, more equitably to low income, immigrant, and minority neighborhoods.聽

馃挮 HUGE THANK YOU to my two super talented friends, Masataka (Piano/Strings) and Jonathan Ulman (Percussion) for making this happen in quarantine and on such a short timeline. Your musical contributions really bring the song to a whole new level. Light and love to you both,聽@masa_keys@jmudrums聽馃寛鈾ワ笍馃尀

馃 Recording and producing the song and video in quarantine with limited equipment and experience was a rewarding challenge that was made infinitely sweeter by the fact that I got to record with my sweet little pumpkin. My heart melts. 馃挄馃槶

“Superhero (Under a Mask)”, a song written by Sophia Moon (Essem Art Studio) imbues virtue and goodness into the small act of wearing one鈥檚 mask during this Pandemic. Small kids, especially, find the act uncomfortable and annoying at best, so Sophia’s goal with this project was to inspire the noble and heroic inclination in us all.
