While 2020 has been a bit of a blur for a lot of people, Marc Scibilia’s year has been quite the rollercoaster of professional achievements and personal life events.
The Nashville-based singer-songwriter released a new album just last month with Seed Of Joy, which included singles “Wild World” featuring Mike Sabath (Lizzo, Jonas Brothers) and Jon Nite (Luke Bryant, Keith Urban), “Favorite Part” featuring Molly Parden, and “Tomorrow”. Along with his album release, Scibilia has also charged through a year which has included the loss of his father to brain cancer, while also welcoming the birth of his daughter.
Aside from his personal battles, Seed Of Joy has garnered over 15 million streams since its arrival last month, and Scibilia is continuing the momentum of his album by premiering the official music video for “This Dream” featuring Cory Wong (Vulfpeck, Fearless Flyers) exclusively on Live For Live Music today.
Written after the loss of his father while greeting joy back into his life with his new daughter, “This Dream” highlights Scibilia’s ability to find peace and transcendence in tragedy. The music video illustrates this theme with dreamlike visuals and transcendental light while Scibilia sings the lyrics that reflect society’s own pulsing high and low themes of this crazy year.
“I made this video with footage I’ve filmed over the years on tour and traveling. We turned my studio into a giant projection wall and played the scenes over it. I wanted it to feel like a dream,” Scibilia said in a statement. “I’m a big Vulfpeck fan, so to have Cory Wong from the band on this track is a dream.”
While Wong isn’t directly seen in the music video, it’s not hard to hear the guitarist’s added spice to the song through some rhythmic guitar textures. The collaboration between the two artists results in an uplifting examination of life’s joyous experiences and tragic occurrences into a catchy indie-pop anthem.
Watch the premiere of the official music video for “This Dream” below.
