I unabashedly tend to focus many of my posts on folks from my immediate city of DC because I’m here, they’re here and it makes for an easy connect and DC talent gets slept on with the quickness nowadays it seems. It’s come to the point where some artists from the area refrain from saying that they are from the area because its this unspoken thing that happens where you fall under the radar of most music writers and audiences if you aren’t from NY, Atlanta, LA or abroad making soul music. Sad, but true.
Shot by director Chris Keener, the video follows Tabi, Kokayi and Alison from the song’s inception and recording, to its first live performance that very night. I think it’s pretty hot. I also think its necessary to say that I feeling the direction Tabi is taking with his music–there seems to be a maturity infused now in his whole persona lately. Me likes. I’ve always been a fan of Kokayi and Alison Carney, so this tune is pretty much in step with what I expect from them. To witness their process as artists (not just performers) and see it manifest in one day is awesome for sure. So, that’s my take. Tell us what you think SoulBouncers. And, better yet, what other artists would you like to get a behind-the-scenes view of, witnessing their artistic process in a day?
