Jackie Highway (brainchild of musician and singer Angie Shyr) just debuted a beyond groovy video for her already funky track, “Here I Am.” The song is driven by a quick and chill drum beat and deep, plucky bass under Shyr’s voice. She wavers in a place between spoken-word and singing, with a voice that can be both husky and sweet from one moment to the next. The accompanying video is filled with colorful projections and other-worldly costumes as Jackie Highway and her bass player spend the day getting acquainted with music. Check it out above.
Here’s what Jackie Highway had to say about the new track:
From the moment I wake up, I’m sonically wired to music, written or unwritten, winding 33rpm around the Universe. My ears charge even as I sleep, like a hard drive of audio currents amassing melody and harmony from all over – while my pulse fires like a like a ripe, mellow bassline.
