Russian born singer-songwriter Ksenia knows a few things about dreaming big. Growing up in the small town of Nakhodka where she took up learning classical piano and entered a number of musical competitions, she had a desire to see more of the world and at the same time, show the world what she could do. Fast forward to 2019 and she’s well and truly making her mark on the music world, having moved to New York in 2010. Now, and with an MFA in acting and film from the city’s Academy to her name, she’s using her passion for creativity to share her talents with as many people as possible.

With her new EP Fire With Fire out in February, Ksenia is closing out a busy year with release of her new single “Keep Walking”, and ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere its video.

Asked about the meaning behind the track and the creative process behind the video, Ksenia says:

““Keep Walking” was inspired by one narcissistic person. Narcissists love to play mind games. It’s a cruel game they play, you think there is something real going on but for them, it’s just a game so they can feed their huge ego! That’s why there are lyrics “it was a love story without love and heartbreak without heart,” because it was just a game all along. By the time I figured that out, I didn’t curse him out. I just said to “Keep walking!

I’m super excited to release dance music video for my new song! My performance shots were on the Brooklyn Bridge, as I wanted it to be a metaphor that I am crossing that bridge and I am done. I also wanted to tell a story through dancing as well. I am super passionate about ballroom dancing but I’m a beginner at it. The biggest challenge was to dance and act and to lock my knees. The rumba is soo hard, but I love it! Hope you enjoy the video!”

There are perhaps few artists around who have become a staple across several genres of music quite like Eileen Carey. The singer-songwriter from Ohio has shared the stage with acts including The Motels, Jefferson Starship and Don Mclean and has been a near permanent feature on the New Music Weekly charts over the past three years.

Carey saw out 2019 by being named the Hot AC/AC Breakthrough artist of the year and now, at the start of this new decade, as someone who is already well established for writing songs so many can relate to, Carey is kicking off 2020 with the release of her single “Finally”, the video for which ThisIsTheLatest are delighted to premiere.

Asked about the meaning/story to the song and the creative process to the video, Carey says:

“Strong emotions sometimes cry out for strong language. These lyrics state in the plainest possible way what we feel but may be hesitant to say.

“Finally” is the most unusual music video I have ever released. It came out of my long relationship with producer-director Taner Tumkaya who collaborated with me on most of my recent music videos. Our last music video of “Meet Me Halfway” has had 70,000+ Youtube views. After 8 years in the U.S., he returned to Germany earlier this year, so we had to figure out a way to work. It was meant to be a lyric video initially, but in attempting to make the lyric video more interesting we happened on this stop-action animation. It turned out to be a great experience. It was a case of necessity being the mother of invention,” so to speak.
