Loud + Clear is a single from Jess Starreveld’s upcoming album of the same title. It was originally conceived as a response to the inhumane way we’ve seen asylum seekers treated in Australia.
While the song was written a few years ago, we’re still seeing mistreatment today. There are also many other groups in our community who are experiencing discrimination, and Jess’s intention is to share the song with the many people who want this to change, and highlight some incredible people in our society who are choosing to be a voice for the voiceless.
The music video was filmed at COMMUNE, and joining Jess on vocals and keys are musicians Daniele Montarulo on violin and Harry Brus on bass. The clip also features fellow artists and advocates L Fresh The Lion, Thaylia, Bree Young, Ravi Prassad and Kitty Pang.
It was an amazing collaborative process to be a part of, combining the art forms of music and film to highlight the message of the song. It’s a thrill to see people resonate with the music video, with the hope that it speaks out for those in our community who can’t.
Loud + Clear was produced by the very talented Michael McGlynn at Vienna People.
