RootStrings Management is delighted to announce the release of a new original song from Irish singer-songwriter Mary McLaughlin. “I’m Looking for Sanctuary” is a stirring reflection on the plight of refugees everywhere.
Mary says: “‘I’m Looking for Sanctuary’ was recorded at home in Ireland during the Covid lockdown of Winter 2020-2021. The song began its life twenty years previously in 2001 on the occasion of my visiting Ellis Island in New York and empathising with the hopes and fears of my ancestors who had emigrated from Ireland to the USA. The first slide in the video tells the story of how I came to write the song and why I have waited so long to actually release it. I recorded the guitar and all vocals on Garage Band and sent the files to producer Stu Wilson who added the keyboards and blended the vocals. Please wait until the end of the video to see details of charities that you might consider supporting.”
Rootstrings Management is very excited to announce the release of Teresa Suydam’s brand new single, “Take Me to The Water”. The single is due to be released on Wednesday the 16th of September along with the upload of the official music video to YouTube.
Teresa is a singer-songwriter based in Denver, Colorado. Teresa has a unique and alternative style. She takes her inspiration from artists like Regina Spektor, Panic at The Disco and My Chemical Romance but also brings her own style and flavour to her music. She is a talented lyricist and musician. Teresa has spent years curating her sound and image by completing a Bachelor of Science in Vocal Performance from The University of Denver and by gaining experience performing. Teresa has two other previously released songs called “San Francisco” and “All I Care About is You”.
Take Me to The Water was recorded in Boulder Music, Boulder, Colorado. The song was mixed by George Lacson and mastered by Savannah Lish. The song features beautiful piano and string accompaniment and of course Teresa’s stunning vocals. When speaking about the track Teresa said; “I want to emphasize the fact that water has historically been used by humans and creatures as a way to cleanse, both physically and emotionally,” said Suydam, opening up about the process, “And the water is life itself… it’s just human.” The song will be available on all major streaming platforms (Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Deezer, iHeartRadio, Google Play and YouTube Music) and www.teresasuydam.com as of the 16th of September.
The concept for the music video came from Teresa’s want to accommodate not only the hearing community who constantly have access to accessible music but also the hard of hearing/deaf community. The music video features sign language interpretation by Rachel White. The music video is very aesthically pleasing which suits the ambient feeling of the single itself. There is a teaser of the music video and single available on Teresa’s website and social media platforms.
