It Beats video. I Am Lightyear always rocks.
Dedicated to the beautiful musician Lauren Zettler, now also known under the name Lightyear.
that time we stripped down it beats to a three piece and recorded it in a concrete room!
After years of releasing music as a singer-songwriter, Brooklyn-based musician Lauren Zettler needed to make a change. Her new electro-pop project, Lightyear, is catchy, yet dramatic, and shows her as graceful, but still vulnerable about her emotions. Drawing from influences like Emily Haines, Feist and Robyn while also tapping into her own technical skills — she’s a classically trained pianist and studied film scoring at the Berklee School of Music — Zettler is able to create beautifully fragile moments that build up to powerfully stirring points.

Watch to see the best music video ever made! So detailed and amazing.
I made a music video for the song “From Here” by Lightyear
The moment I heard this song I was immediately connected to it and was SO inspired to create this video. I needed to express what I was feeling and what the song meant for me and hopefully I have portrayed a glimpse of that here. The lyrics, even in their simplicity, really hit home for me and for where I am right now in my life and I had to pay tribute to that. Hopefully you will enjoy what you see!

Lauren Zettler - Don’t Think Twice (It’s Alright)
Because this is one of my favourite covers of a cover of a Bob Dylan song, and Lauren’s voice is infinitely perfect.
I gave her my heart but she wanted my soul.
