Today, GRAMMY award-winning musician, Anna Wise has unveiled her latest music video for her meditative track “Balance In All” via Stereogum. PRESS HERE to watch. The video, which was self-directed by Wise herself and shot by Alex Blum, follows Wise as she gets in touch with nature by blissfully wandering through a variety of outdoor settings from a waterfall to a cliff side. “Balance In All” is the latest single off of the critically-lauded EP – The Feminine: Act II (out now). The project is a brilliant collection of soulful R&B grooves with a spiritual core and production richness that is coupled with lyrics that celebrate womanhood with a powerful feminist stance.
Anna Wise told Stereogum: “I grew up in Northern California close to what I call the ocean forest. My family would often visit Muir Woods. There are trees so big there you can’t wrap your arms around them. On these family trips I’d sneak off into a private corner of nature and sing to the Redwoods. I felt completely isolated in my private nature nook, although my mom always had an eye on me. I fell in love with the dense green and became acquainted with silence. I’d lie still and watch nature reveal itself to me. The faint smell of salt water reminded me the Pacific Ocean was just beyond the foliage curtain. It wasn’t until I moved to Brooklyn that I realized I grew up in one of the most beautiful places on earth, and I began to miss it terribly. Recently, I had a chance to return home. I felt drawn to document where I first felt wild and free as a child. “Balance In All” is a tribute to the ecstatic healing powers of nature, the natural anti-depressant of fresh air and bird songs, and the cleansing power of the ocean.”
Recently, Anna Wise announced she will tour with Lewis Del Mar for a string of North American dates this Spring 2017. Folks who missed her much talked about performances at this year’s SXSW (which had producer Jay Gabler of The Current expressing “If you die and come through on the other side and hear Anna Wise, you think, ‘Heaven is an ultralounge and I am HERE FOR IT'”) will be able to experience her captivating live show in most major cities across the US, including Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, and more. The tour kicks off on April 19th in Burlington, VT at Higher Ground. All dates listed below.
