Keep My Head Up

Produced By: Abbessa Music & Natural High Music
Directed by: Nicholas ‘BIRDY’ Shaw

Kelissa’s music has been described as melodic, harmonious, and ethereal; her latest single, Keep My Head Up, is all of those things and something more. Produced by Royal Order Music & Green Stone Music, the single is a part of the Smart Riddim, which also features Marla Brown, Gappy Ranks, Norris Man, Jah Bami.

The sweet and inspiring vocals on Keep My Head Up deliver an uplifting message. “I believe that suffering is a human condition. We all experience it to different degrees,” says Kelissa. With this single she is steady on a mission to encourage listeners to overcome this suffering. “Life has a way of testing our boundaries to show us what we are really capable of, and I think it’s how we respond that reveals our level of resilience. We can always get back on track,” she explains.

The music video, directed and edited by Nicholas ‘Birdy’ Shaw, uses vivid scenes and performance shots to create a visual experience that enhances the idea of overcoming. The modern treatment will take you one step closer to the better path described in the lyrics. The combination of time lapses and fast cuts propel you through the video, much like the song drives you to move forward through life. The behind the scenes – directed and edited by Andy Astwood – is also out and can be viewed on Kelissa’s YouTube channel, Kelissa Anbessa.
