Anna Larson’s “Acting Alone”

I first heard this track as part of this week’s “New Mix” episode, from NPR Music. It’s haunting, poignant, genuine. It’s worth listening to with complete focus.

Anna Larson wrote [Bob Boilen] to say, “I wish I didn’t live in a world where writing a song about senseless gun violence was something I had to do.” But “Acting Alone” is a poetic and powerful approach to an all-too-common event. The song was written to benefit Moms Demand Action.
