Del Norte, CO based Singer / Songwriter GRAYSON ERHARD has released a stunning music video for “Introvert,” off of his November 2nd EP, Earthship. Originally premiered on mxdwn, “Introvert” was directed and filmed by Jason Lee Denton.
“‘Introvert’ is a reflection of the internal struggles of an introvert, outlining battles with constant bombardment of social situations and wanting to get back to solitude, but ultimately becoming comfortable in one’s own skin. Personally, it’s a musical observation of what I see living with and loving an introvert.”- Grayson Erhard
“Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Grayson Erhard recently released a five song EP titled EARTHSHIP. The album is an eclectic offering with songs that touch on everything from folk to hard rock, all through the lens of his masterful guitar playing. Today, we’re excited to premiere a video for the last song on that EP, a richly-arranged acoustic-rock number called ‘Introvert.’” – Matt Matasci – mxdwn
Colorado-based musician Grayson Erhard’s “Introvert” video is a visual romance to the introverts, the lovers of them, and the parts of ourselves that need solace.
The video, which dropped today following the release of Erhard sophomore album and EP EARTHSHIP, reflects a more mysterious, somber aesthetic compared to his recent “Tell Me No” video.
“‘Introvert’ reflects the times when I feel best alone,” Erhard said. “It’s about the welcome isolation that comes when everything else is overwhelming. And, yet, how we’re all connected by our desire to pull away from society and into ourselves, at times.”
Like much of the EP, “Introvert” marks a distinct shift toward a full-band, lyrically-focused style and away from Erhard’s previously undressed, stand-alone acoustic sound.
In it, Erhard has weaved together the percussive style of his early love of Metal and the technically complex percussive guitar style that colored his early career with a more dreamy, indie rock sound. He purposefully plays with and disrupts the common chord progressions of pop music, while complimenting distinct harmonics with EARTHSHIP co-writer Bannigrin’s drum lines.
The video was directed by Jason Lee Denton, produced by Schuyler Howie, and features Aliegh Sheilds. It was shot on location at a beautiful home outside of Nashville, TN.
