"The song 'Crazy' is a love/relationship song. However, one day while looking around seeing everyone so engrossed with their phones etc. I thought, what if the story line will be about a love song between humans and A.I. I thought that would be a completely unexpected spin on a relationship song and then the video concept of the song was born. I had a blast with the making of the video, morphing between human and my A.I self was so much fun, I really enjoyed it. We went to work on it immediately and after the release, we received really good positive feedback on the concept. I'm so grateful for the download of the idea and I'm hoping to be an inspiration to other artists in this area. Maybe they will call me the "godmother" of this concept in the music field."

Out & About
With Ēisa

January 25th, 2024
at Adults Only in Hollywood, CA

It was another great Breaking Sounds show, this time at the very funky Adults Only club in Hollywood. The place was packed, it was hot, and when What's In-Store Music artist Ēisa stepped up to the mic it got even hotter. To say this young lady can belt it out would be an understatement. She was the third artist to take the stage, following two big powerhouse voices, and she picked right up where they left off. The place loved her. On a personal note, it was great to hear her song "Ramen on Melrose" (which has been playing in stores), live, and hear the crowd respond to it. She's working on new music now and we look forward to hearing it soon. Big thank you to Dani Thompson of DNT Entertainment for turning me on to this talented artist.

Have a great week,

Scott Emerson
