About

Animated Music Video for New Collaboration: Lia Rose - Must Be Undone, featuring Tom Morello and Son of Nun

It is with a huge blast of excitement (!!!!) that I announce a brand new collaboration.  Soon I will be releasing a song featuring TOM MORELLO and SON OF NUN. What???!! I know.  I can hardly believe it myself.  This song has been in the works for several months and it is getting close! Close enough, in fact, that I am putting in motion the steps to produce an amazing animated video to go along with the release!  

I have been working relentlessly on music, both solo and some amazing collaborations. Built for the Sea is getting ready to release our first ever vinyl through Firebrand Records, which is also super exciting -- all proceeds of that will go to Doctors Without Borders!  So with all of these projects in the works, I was not quite prepared to launch a music video too! Hah! But ... I cannot pass up this opportunity.  This possibility -- of having such an amazing video being produced for such an incredible collaboration -- well, with your help, we can make it real!! 

If you’re already on board and want to get involved, check out all the special offerings --> 

If you’d like to know more, read on!! :)

This song has an important message. It was originally inspired by this quote:

"Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid, it is man made and can be removed by the actions of human beings."  - Nelson Mandela

Here’s how I feel about it:

We are living in a time of massive wealth & resource inequality.  We (human beings) got us into this mess.  We (human beings) must get us out of it.  I believe so strongly that there are WAY more good people than bad.  And we have power in numbers.  STRENGTH in numbers.

In this collaboration, Son of Nun gives us bone chilling rhymes about the problems with greed. 

Tom Morello gives us an absolutely epic guitar solo, infused with all the power of a lifetime of activism and dedication to social justice.    

The incredible Geoff McCann has been co-writing and producing and I brought my dear friend Avi Vinocur (Goodnight, TX) on as co-writer to make sure lyrics and vocals would be the best they could be.   

As you might imagine, I’m a little excited.  So I am 100% committed to having powerful visuals along with the release of this song in order to make the most impact and reach the widest audience.  

I am teaming up with Jonny Lawrence - an unquestionably phenomenal artist and animator - to create the visuals.

First, I want to show you his raw talent:

And now, check out his reel to see all the amazing things he's capable of:

I have never been this certain in my ENTIRE life -- this visual collaboration WILL DELIVER.  I have seen some of the storyboard visuals and I. AM. FLOORED.  And the concept is, well, sorta just sci-fi AMAZING!!!

As you probably know -- it takes a whole lot of time and talent to make a **stellar** music video.  And my priority is to always pay artists fairly.  It is the right thing to do and it ends up creating the most beautiful end product.   So I'm asking you to help make this vision happen!  Check out the offerings and see if you'd be interested in being a part of this exciting creative endeavor!!

Thank you and I can't wait to share this with all of you and then with the world!

XO
