Shannon Lay has the voice of an angel. When the fiery, orange-haired guitarist isn’t shredding for Feels, she strips down to an acoustic guitar and melts your mind away. Lay’s debut solo album, All This Life Going Down, dropped in February on Do Not Disturb Records, and today, we’re happy to premiere her new video for “JHR”, directed by Castle Face Records co-founder Brian Lee Hughes and Sandy Kim. Press play, and get ready to fall under her spell.
“When I first heard Shannon Lay play me JHR it was like taking some sort of hypnotic pill and I wanted to make a film for it that matched it’s trance,” said Hughes of the video. Lay recently finished touring with CFM and the Cairo Gang, but the local LA musician plays more shows than I can count. Make sure to check her out live for full effect. It’s better than any kind of pill out there. —Maya Eslami
