New Hampshire based singer/songwriter/producer Steven Scott describes his music as ‘acoustic folk rock for dreamers’. Meticulously crafted yet always room for exploration, nothing is written without a purpose. His debut EP, Albino Road, is just that. A musical endeavor that is searching for a soul; a purpose. Passionately crafted and full of emotion Steven searches both in the light and the darkness. What he finds is balance. We caught up with Steven as he discusses his new video “Albino Road”
1. Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically in this way?
The song itself revolves around two albino children who were, according to the legend, drowned by the town elders for being different. My goal with the video was not to sugarcoat it. The story takes place in the 1600’s. And, what really resonated with me, is not much has changed. Society still judges people the same way. I wanted to convey that message in the visuals.
2. What was the inspiration behind this video (visuals, storyline, etc.)?
As stated above, one random evening while scouring the web i ended up on a site that depicted a road, about 20 minutes from my home, that was supposedly haunted. The story intrigued me. So one day i took a drive and found the abandoned road. This pretty much opened pandora’s box and the rest is basically the song.
3. What was the process of making this video?
This was actually my 1st self produced video. I bought a black magic pocket cinema 4k camera just for this song. At the same time i knew that, producing this video alone in a pandemic, it would be hard to get a “crew” so i settled on stock footage and footage recorded in my home studio (where i have a video room). It was an amazing learning experience and I can’t wait to do it again now that i got the basics down. -:)
