NORWALK, CT, USA, September 26, 2023 / -- Pilot Light Records has released an official new music video for recording artist Vicki F’s dream-pop ballad “There is a God.” The video was filmed and produced at Factory Underground Studio in Norwalk, CT, co-directed by Marc Alan, with Director of Photography and Editor, John Shyloski.

The visually stunning music video, available on YouTube, is an intriguing mix of experimental filmmaking, with elements of classic film noir. Shot and edited entirely in black and white, the interplay of light and shadow is used to create a sense of phantasmagoria and mystery.

Unapologetic close up shots of Vicki's face and hands, as she sings and plays the guitar, create a sense of intimacy with the viewer, as we bear witness to a stunningly personal and introspective solo performance.

As the song evolves, and winds its way toward an emotional release, so too does the video, with Vicki emerging from the darkness, bathed in a shimmering white light. Yet even with the burst of light, Vicki remains as she was at the very start, a figure of intrigue, peering out from the shadows.

The cinematography is a fitting match to the aural soundscape constructed by producer-engineer Tom Stewart, and mix engineer with Kenny Cash. Lush slide guitar lines, acoustic guitars, and background vocals dripping in reverb, are at times reminiscent of Brian Wilson's “Pet Sounds.”

About “There is a God,” Vicki states: “This is not a Christian song [as many believe]. It’s a human song as told in the lyrics, “do I get a prize for trying, can you see that I am crying, I am working on believing, I do not think I am only dreaming.”

“I wrote this song to try to work out my struggle about whether there is a god or not. I think Marc Alan and John Shyloski did an extraordinary production that captures the mystery of the struggle for belief,” she said.

About the creative direction for the music video, Marc Alan stated: "I was originally inspired by a photographic portrait of a woman sitting in a dark room with shadows of a Venetian blind streaked across her face. This was something I wanted to recreate in a music video.

I remember the day I was running around maniacally trying to find just the right type of blind to shoot light through. I didn't seem to notice all the people wearing masks in the store. It was the day of the Canadian forest fires, and I was oblivious…. This is what I love about the filmmaking process, the relentless drive to bring a creative vision to life.”

“There is a God” is the fourth music video by the team of Alan and Shyloski. The pair previously co-directed a roof-top set music video for Vicki F’s cover of “Downtown,” as sung originally by Petula Clark. They also co-directed videos for “Late Night Train,” by Tom “The Suit” Forst, shot guerilla-style on the New York City subway, and “Everything is Falling,” a simulated live-performance captured on stage at the historic Wall Street Theater in downtown Norwalk, CT.

Pilot Light Records is pleased to announce the debut single “Just Keep on Walking” by Stamford, CT-raised singer-songwriter Isabel Mirri. Mirri is an artist of an entirely new generation of young teen-age artists - loaded with talent and determined to follow in the footsteps of superstars like Taylor Swift and Adele.

Yet there is a depth to Isabel Mirri’s musicianship that goes light-years beyond the first time she played "Ode to Joy" on the piano at age six, or the first song she remembers learning to sing, “I’ll Always Remember Us This Way” by Lady Gaga. Citing diverse influences including Sara Bareilles, Joni Mitchell, and Lauren Spencer Smith, Mirri has indeed become a songwriter of tremendous maturity in her own right.

The trajectory of her artistic development is astonishing when you consider that it’s only been five years since Mirri wrote her first song at age eleven entitled “Nightmare in Disguise.” That song was written “from the narrative of a girl in a toxic relationship, blaming herself for not seeing her boyfriend’s underlying controlling character. I had wanted to write a story and slip into a new perspective, so I took inspiration from songs I had previously heard, and made a song of my own,” she explains.

“It was the song 'Both Sides Now' by Joni Mitchell that really inspired the way I write. Sometimes the simplest words can have the deepest and most complex meanings. She incorporated a lot of figurative language into it, and the overall song sparks emotion,” said Mirri.

“Just Keep On Walking” is now available on world-wide streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify, marking Mirri’s professional debut as a recording artist. The track was produced by Kenny Cash and recorded at Factory Underground Studio in Norwalk, CT. It features Mirri on vocals, vocal production and arrangement by Elaine Rojas, Steve Sasloe on piano, and Cash himself on guitar.

“It’s always a pleasure working with a young artist with such mature penmanship. You can tell Isabel has a deep passion for writing and she immerses herself into the lyrics and melody,” said Cash.
