SPEAK! & AFTA-1 Present: No Distance Just Grace

Local music is often looked past nowadays.  Think about it, all internationally known artists were local cats at one point in their lives, with the exception of overnight success stories.  I’ve been a strong supporter of the local scene since I was 12 years old.  21 now, and still an avid supporter of anything that goes on around my city, whether it’s a backyard gig or the opening reception at an art gallery.

One thing that cannot be faked is the passion and love one has for their craft.  A poet can simply recite a poem, but they aren’t just speaking from their mouths.  Honest passion is felt, and not just heard or seen.  The same applies to any form of expression.

Now, back to the music, more specifically, SPEAK! and AFTA-1‘s new music video for the title track of their upcoming album, No Distance Just Grace.  The album has been in the works for a while.  No release date has not been announced yet, but we’re hoping it’s soon.  The world needs music from these two creatives.  And creative doesn’t even begin to describe the concept of the Moreno Valley duo’s new video.  Instead of a performance or short film type of music video, they put together a stop motion animation with the help of director, Lila Burns.

I’ll let the video do the rest of the talking.  Click play and enjoy the beautiful sounds and visuals of the astonishing moving portrait, No Distance Just Grace.
