Niabi’s music video for “2008”

A couple weeks ago I shot my second music video for my single, 2008.  My friend Nicole  and I shot on super 8 on top of my roof in Brooklyn.  I dressed my roof to be the set of a forest.  My friend Elena is the featured dancer in the video.

That’s me dressing the set with branches for my forest.

There was a skywriter the day of my shoot who wrote “last chance” in the sky.  hmm.


Tonight Nicole and I are meeting at a Brooklyn bar to review the super 8 footage. Can’t wait to share this one with you all.

WE’LL ALWAYS END UP ON FIRE from Niabi’s forthcoming EP, Forest Fires


20 January, 2011

first single // 2008

… is coming coming coming soon.

Last night we worked till late in the night/early in the morning going through it with a fine tooth comb.  The layers and builds make me want to fall to my knees at points.  It’s feeling… there - in the pocket - so so close. 

and what is incredibly cool for me, is that when I was writing this I was writing from a place in my heart that was so very broken.  I always considered 2008 to be the saddest song on my EP, even though (especially) because there were no vocals.  Now it’s taken a stance of triumphancy, - still gutting - but the story it tells has changed ever so slightly.  Instead of sitting down, it’s standing up.

I’m so thankful.

Thankful that my Grandfather insisted on piano lessons.

Thankful I found the right person to collaborate with (Hi Jonathan).

Thankful for Mark Van Hoen, producer.


Have a beautiful day everyone.

You’ll be hearing 2008 soon.  Stand by.
