ABBY ZOTZ – “SEE YOUR FACE”
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
Abby Zotz’s award-winning debut solo release Local Honey is a satisfying union of wistful pop blended beautifully with folk, blues and gospel, all filtered through her gift of emotional and physical contemplation. Her long-time collaboration with Bryan Williston in folk-pop duo Two Roads Home served her well on the new recording, with Williston co-writing on several tunes. But time and experience have lent a new edge to Local Honey; a deeper vocal range and maturity that adds dimension, a touching honesty to her lyrics and an emotional depth to her songs.
“See Your Face” is the third video from Local Honey, and is an homage to the songwriter’s creative spirit, which she says often returns to her in the spring, “kind of like a neglected child finding her way back into my heart. I wrote it after a particularly busy and brutally cold winter. I was depleted and uninspired and didn’t know why.” Directed by Sheena D. Robertson and featuring Zotz, Laura Cardeño, Baker Albach and Anntonia Marcucci-Robinson, it is tender and dream-like, with inspiration growing steadily in the warming air. It’s a state that brings us to a sense of homecoming, guided by Zotz’s warmly wise lyrics and sweet vocals. “See Your Face” was shot in Northumberland County in late May 2019 – after a particularly long winter and wet start to spring – with photography by Dakota Wotton, and editing by Jordan Crute.
