Breathe Music Video

Breathe” is a raw and honest portrait of Stevie Soul as a mature artist who sees the world with cynical eyes. Since the release of his last record, Stevie has grown as a musician, learned some of life's tougher lessons, and expanded his creative pursuits into mediums like film. It is only natural that he would use these experiences to fuel his next project as a very different kind of release.

Stevie decided to collaborate with a multidisciplinary team of artists such as music producer Omar Aragones and writer/director David Tappan to bring to life "Breathe". Conceptualized as an audiovisual statement which is equal parts audio and visual, "Breathe" is filled with the angst and anxiety of an artist entering his 30's and battling with the feeling that the world is beating you down. The piece is moody and performance-driven, filled with a sense of loss, nostalgia, and dark mystery. Yet it shows how in the face of an overwhelming sense of drowning in the pressures and expectations of society it is possible to find peace. All you have to do is breathe. Just breathe.

The location of the film was just as integral to the meaning behind it. Silvio's pizzeria was once an iconic location from Stevie's youth. Now the garden which used to be a goldmine of handmade sculptures, art, and culture has now fallen apart and been taken over by the elements. This unsettling backdrop played as the perfect texture to set the tone for an artist who is grappling with the death of innocence. The music was written and performed by Stevie Soul and produced by Omar Aragones. The film was produced by Stevie Soul and written/directed by David Tappan.
