Jasmine Ash is thrilled to announce the official video release for "Starlight", which premiered on the Independent Film Channel.
"Starlight" uses gorgeous stop-motion animation to capture the joy and fun of the song, showcasing what Performer Magazine calls Jasmine's "stunning compositions." The genius of Jasmine's songwriting lies in her ability to juxtapose brooding, honest, often dark lyrics, with her sweet voice and catchy melodies.
The video and its concept was created by Tripp and Jenna Watt of Phantasmic TV.
"It took one listen of Jasmine Ash's 'Starlight' for us to fall completely in love with Jasmine and the video project as a whole," said Tripp and Jenna. "The melodic and upbeat tempo of 'Starlight' instantaneously sparked our imaginations and the idea for the video was born. Embracing the warmth of the song, we combined tactile hand-crafted creatures with elaborately designed environments. The result is a celebration of heartwarming characters, lush backdrops, and beautiful design."
"Starlight" is off of Jasmine's latest solo release, Beneath The Noise, which was released on February 14th of this year.
The record was produced and co-written by bandmates Sam Farrar and Jacques Brautbar (also of Phantom Planet fame).
