Caverns was inspired by…
Seasons of life marked by darkness, anxiety, hurt, and lots of unknown. Yet, simultaneously light was streaming through in bits and pieces, shouting to Emily that hope was alive and breathing vividly outside the caverns of hollow. Now in a different season of life, Emily looks back on the songs she wrote and still deeply identifies with twinges of fear or sorrow at times, yet she sees and knows the light and hope swirling around her.
I wanted the album art for Caverns to tell the story visually. A massive swirling sky of pinks and oranges beckons to be basked in, but oftentimes we get stuck in Caverns below and can only see glimmers of light, if any.
