"March of Crows" is an interdisciplinary collaborative project devised by singer-songwriter Shayfer James. The first "March Of Crows" is collaboration between Shayfer, 16 visual artists, 3 Poets, a director, a Choreographer a lighting designer, and videographer. All based out of Jersey City.

The process begins with visual art. Shayfer has written 16 songs using the work of local artists as prompt. The task was to not only communicate the art through words, but also by incorporating different styles and textures to capture the life of the work.

lyrics

Darling, Invite me in
Let me taste the ink upon your skin
I have wanted you for too long

Darling, kiss me to the death
Haloed heathen, heavy breath
I have wanted you for too long

Don’t tell me this is wrong
I already know
So pour yourself some wine
And let me watch you
Sip it slow

Darling,
Make a martyr out of me
Whisper immortality
I have wanted you for too long
