Single and music video
A note from Jess:
This first single is called ‘Loud + Clear’ and was originally written as a response to the inhumane way we’ve seen asylum seekers treated in Australia. I wrote the song a few years ago, but still we’re seeing mistreatment in 2019. There’s also many other groups in our community who are experiencing discrimination so I wanted to share this song for the many people who want this to change, and highlight some incredible people in our community who are choosing to be a voice for the voiceless.
The song was produced by the very talented Michael McGlynn at Vienna People, featuring myself on vocals and piano, Jess Graham on violin and Harry Brus on bass. It was mixed with the amazing help of David Richards and mastered by William Bowden.
The music video was filmed at COMMUNE, made by the team at THREECOIN Pictures and directed by Tin Pang. It was an amazing collaborative process to be a part of. We combined our art forms – music and film – to highlight the message of the song. We’re both really excited to release this music video, and we hope it speaks out for those in our community who can’t.
