Whitney Coleman – Turn It Up feat. JL [Video]

In her latest collaboration with video director Jace, R&B/Soul artist Whitney Coleman delivers a joint that may leave you fist pumping through your local gas stations, tattoo parlors, and break-dancer-full parking lots. What makes this project even more impressive is that the production from top to bottom for the song and video were all done in under a week!

Falling Hearts


Whitney Coleman – Falling Hearts

I enjoy anything that musician Whitney Coleman or director Jace produces on their own, but when these two great minds come together it’s really something special. The lyrics are simple in a very poetic way, but what I really love is how the rhythm and cadence of certain lines over the afro-electro reminiscent beat adds another element to the song. I don’t want to give away too much, but this video is a great interpolation of the song, with a very conceptual narrative and stylistic execution from Jace. Also lending to the creativity in this video is Erica Mitchell, the stylist who put together Whitney’s chic, flowing ensemble.

Here is the back story on the song.

“I wrote this song about 4 years ago, actually all instrumentation and sounds that I made from my computer in Garage Band. I was sitting on my couch recovering from an ACL injury on my knee (note: I used to play basketball for my college) and a break up as well with a guy I used to date. In my misery I came up with this song. It represents something new…something true…something real and that can, in a sense, represent “love” in a different light…in a desperate, vulnerable light, that makes you risk anything to have it and to experience it. The title and video “Falling Hearts” is just that. Taking the notion of “Falling Stars” and “Falling in love” and literally showing it with representation of two people meeting …even if things don’t go well…that’s just how I want to love…risking it all”

Whitney Coleman - Stranger Pt. 2 Love Me

This is what happens when multiple art forms come together and they are all of high quality and are in sync with each other. Whitney Coleman’s latest is a dynamic, heartfelt, emotional song reflected through a very unique and appropriate video that contains intimate photography and un-corny, believable acting, which is very uncommon for an independent music video. Great job all around with this one. Directed by Jace.

Whitney Coleman – Dreams

Two years ago, I had the pleasure of sound engineering a concert put on by Whitney Coleman at the impressive, EMPAC, located on the RPI campus in Troy, NY. Whitney Coleman is a special artist. Her soulful, inspirational music is deeply rooted in gospel, but you can’t help but feel comforting qualities of Goapele in her voice in her neo-soul/R&B-like tracks or be impressed by her versatility, reminiscent of Lauryn, when she seamlessly switches to hip hop.

“Dreams” is her second official music video off of her new album “The Love Chapter: Lessons From A Human Heart”. The concept of the song is “Always keep dreaming…believe in your dreams.” This idea is translated through shots of Whitney running through the woods, jumping over metaphoric obstacles, falling, getting back up and continuing her journey. I love that she’s releasing music videos, but if you get a chance to see her live, do it; she really puts on a show. For those in the Indy area on September 17th, you’ll be able to check her out at the Oranje arts and music showcase.
