"Anchors Aweigh" Official Music Video
Premiere: October 20, 2017
Directed by Francis Capone and shot by Markus Mentzer 0n St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands. Produced by Alisha Westerman and Francis Capone. Creative direction and styling by Alisha Westerman. The video was shot just a few months before three hurricanes ripped through the Caribbean community. It features rich, bright imagery of Danish colonial architecture and natural landscapes. “St. Croix has the lush, the green, the vibrant, and also the crumbling and eroding. I love to show both,” says Westerman. Lyrically, the song is meant to mythologize Westerman’s loved ones, culminating in a verse about her father suffering a heart attack while sailing. Her father, sailor and Calypsonian Llewellyn Westerman, makes a cameo aboard his 37’ sailboat, Charis+.
