Alanna Boudreau’s “Pem” boldly delves into the fear and vulnerability in loving and being loved



Click here to launch the slideshow

Leading up to the July 22 release of her second full-length album Champion, singer-songwriter Alanna Boudreau released a video for her song “Pem” from the album. The video, shot live in Nashville, is stark, bare, stripped-down – the perfect backdrop for the song about the fear and vulnerability in loving and being loved. 

Inside a room without any curtains,
you’re afraid that somebody just might look in
so it’s easier to say that nobody’s home, then,
that way there’s no risk of showing any skin.
I could play it safe, play it safe, play it safe
I could hide away, hide away, hide away
I can’t live that way…

After watching the video, head over to iTunes to download Champion, or to Alanna’s website to order a physical copy.
