Trey Pearson’s new music video, “Silver Horizon,” directed by Stephen Cone, marks the release of his first music video since coming out of the closet when he was frontman of Christian rock band Everyday Sunday. Speaking about the video, Trey said, “Sometimes we hang onto what we know with everything we have, even when it’s not what’s best for us, because we’re scared of what is on the other side. “Silver Horizon” is about a different kind of light that we can only experience on the other side of the dark once we have gone through the pain. This music video is about that light and freedom that comes with authenticity and being your true self.” Stephen Cone, director of “Silver Horizon, said, “What I hope this video reflects is that we may finally be at a point in history when faith and love can commingle and merge, and the doors can open wider towards a loving, revolutionary acceptance of LGBTQ people. Every living soul deserves a path to transcendence.” “Silver Horizon” is Trey Pearson’s debut solo single. He will be releasing his debut solo album later this year.
In support of her soon-to-be released record, Pussycat, Boston-based singer-songwriter Juliana Hatfield kicked off a national tour on April 22 in New Haven, CT. The brand new video for the song, “Short-Fingered Man,” can be seen online. Juliana is looking forward to the tour and playing the new songs in front of a live audience. About her forthcoming record, she says, “I wasn’t planning on making a record.” In fact, she thought her songwriting career was on hiatus, that she had nothing left to say in song form, and that she had finally said it all after two decades as a recording artist. But then the presidential election happened. “All of these songs just started pouring out of me. And I felt an urgency to record them, to get them down, and get them out there.”
Hatfield produced and played every instrument other than drums—bass, keyboards, guitars, vocals. From start to finish—recording through mixing—the whole thing took a total of just twelve-and-a-half days to complete.
“It was a blur. It was cathartic,” says Hatfield. “I almost don’t even understand what happened in there, or how it came together so smoothly, so quickly. I was there, directing it all, managing it, getting it all done, but I was being swept along by some force that was driving and controlling me. The songs had a will, they forced themselves on me, or out of me, and I did what they told me to do. Even my hands—it felt like they were not my hands. I played bass differently— looser, more confident, better.”
The tour kicked off on April 22 in New Haven, CT and will make stops in Cambridge, MA; Philadelphia; Virginia; NYC; Cleveland and Columbus, OH; and Chicago. More dates to be announced. Pussycat is available for pre-order on iTunes, with an instant download of the song “Wonder Why.”
