Folk Singer-Songwriter Anna Stine Offers Visual Paradise For "There I'll Go"
Last year when we covered Anna Stine’s debut album, Company Of Now, the young singer-songwriter had just officially changed career paths, opting to pursue her dream of making music full-time. It proved to be a wise choice — her album was beautiful in many, many ways, a humble effort that suggested we’d get a chance to hear more sheer talent from Anna some day.
Nearly a year later, we haven’t gotten any more music from Anna Stine, but we did get a music video for “There I’ll Go” off Company Of Now, and it was worth the wait.
"When I chose to pursue this journey of being an artist, I made multiple leaps and the road ahead was often unclear. In many ways this experience has paralleled the journey of inner work — processing grief always involves periods of darkness and uncertainty, and healing is often a meandering path,” Anna tells The Music Mermaid about her new release. “The only way to make true progress is to move through that doubt and discomfort. I’ve never regretted making this leap to create music, just like I’ve never regretted going through painful memories and emotions. On the other end of a steep climb is a beauty that makes the adventure worth all the toil. You always come out the other side with grit and new perspective."
Directed by Elliot Malcolm with Valentin Lutsenko serving as cinematographer, the “There I’ll Go” video is magnificent, for lack of a better word. Seriously. There’s not a word strong enough to explain how exquisite every single shot is. A majority of the scenes are phenomenally detailed views of sprawling, foggy landscapes, and among many, Anna stands, adopting a power stance to perform in. Her modest power mimics the track’s gritty folk energy, a match made in heaven — so it’s no coincidence that the music video for “There I’ll Go” dabbles in the divine. It’s a visual tour-de-force, shot after shot of haunting beauty.
