Grammy-award-winning Folk/Bluegrass prodigy, Sarah Jarosz, has released the official music video for Green Lights from her 2016 release ‘Undercurrent‘. Watch the new video above and get a preview of what you’ll see when Sarah Jarosz performs at The Wilma on September 29, 2017.
Jarosz is celebrating a banner year: her album Undercurrent was released to rapturous reviews, and she and her band have spent the year traveling throughout America and Europe, playing to packed houses.
The Wall Street Journal called the album “direct, unadorned and thoroughly beautiful,” while the Associated Press praised Jarosz’s “understated elegance.”
NPR Music singled out her “uncharacteristically (and deliciously) unyielding” vocals, and Consequence of Sound noted her “startling sense of insight.”
Not only did Jarosz have the honor of presenting at the 59th annual Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony in February, but later that afternoon, she went on to win two Grammys of her own — the first of her career. Undercurrent was named Best Folk Album, and “House of Mercy” won for Best Americana Roots Performance. Silk Road Ensemble’s Sing Me Home, which features a guest appearance by Jarosz, won the Grammy for Best World Music Album.
She recently had the opportunity to record a Spotify Singles Session in New York City. She used the occasion to pay tribute to Prince with a deeply moving rendition of “When Doves Cry,” and also recorded a solo acoustic version of her recent single “Green Lights.”
This past Tuesday, Jarosz shared a sneak peek of her new video for “Green Lights” on her socials. Jarosz said, “I really enjoyed working with Sasha Arutyunova and Jacob Blumberg on my last video for “House of Mercy,” so this past March, we teamed up again on a beautiful spring day in Brooklyn to make this video for “Green Lights” while I was home for a couple of days in between touring.”
She continues, “We wandered all around Prospect Park, soaked in the sun, walked among the reeds, and holed up in a studio for the special effects. Artist Alix Pentecost-Farren compiled hundreds of her stunning watercolors which were spliced together to create the animations that you see throughout the video. It captures the brightness behind the lyrics – the ability to be curious for what lies beyond our world, thankful for what we have, and hopeful for what’s to come.”
