Irreverent British Recording Artist, Aaron Paul, Takes to the Streets of Washington DC With Calls for a Nation in Distress to – ‘DANCEAMERICA #RiseUP’

July 15

Singer, songwriter and style arbiter Aaron Paul in quarantine during the Corona Virus Pandemic for months, working in his recording studio at the home of his parents in New Jersey, Aaron Paul in collaboration with Montgomery Frazier, “The Image Guru”, has created a richly crafted, rhythmic, musical video odyssey, a #DANCEOPUS, if you will, fusing his bi-racial, cross-cultural, interpretive take on America’s chaotic, frenetic journey through cultural pandemonium and transition into a rousing call to Rise Up America! “Fuel the change! Dance to the music and be the change! This is a call to action NOW! Never before have we needed the arts to pull us together,” says Paul. “Music is the universal language and this song is for all Americans to RISE UP and come together, written with a beat that everyone from every culture can dance to”.

Paul explains, “New York City & the world was on lockdown and with time on my hands, I was driven to creativity. We had film footage for a music video shot on location in Washington, D.C. prior to the beginning of the pandemic, and it was just sitting there waiting to be tapped for this project. Filmed by Bryan Griffin and beautifully styled by “TheImageGuru,” Montgomery Frazier, it began to take on a life of its own when I began to edit it. Just so you know, I had no experience whatsoever on the tech side, but I learned how to edit videos during the lockdown. There was a real message in the song I was writing, and the video helped bring it to life. That’s how #DANCEAmericaRiseUP, a short docu music video was born.”

I didn’t tell a soul I was working on the music video for months and being on lockdown, it was great to be under the radar so I could really lose myself in my work. Montgomery gave me some really valuable overviews, but he really encouraged me to take creative license with this project. And he liked what I brought to the table. Being an amazingly gifted conceptualist, once he saw what I was able to do myself, he encouraged me to run with it and I believe our mutual respect has really grown because of our trust in one another.

America has a colorful, vibrant history. I’ve made it my home for most of my adult life so I can speak personality to the experience of settling here, having moved here from Britain as a young man. I wanted to write and sing about what I believe to be the fabric and foundation and irony of America and its all-encompassing philosophies, Land of the Free and Home of the Brave. I wanted to celebrate what is good about America even though we’re in the midst of a long overdue upheaval to address racial inequality.

The opportunity to live life as we choose without judgement or persecution is a tenant that must continue to be fostered and sustained for all Americans. DANCE AMERICA UP AMERICA is visual roller coaster set to a beat that reverberates throughout the body. “I have a dream”. It’s my hope as a musician that we can heal through music, dancing together as One Nation. Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in our nation’s capital where we shot the bulk of our video footage, I couldn’t help but recall the words of the honorable Dr. Martin Luther King who said those famous words so long ago. We all have our dreams. Mine will always be, One Nation Under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

The Washington DC video shoot was produced by Executive Producer Deb Chandler, KF Media Group. Chandler called on Cynthia Burt and Najla Burt, the international mother and daughter design team for the luxury brand Dur Doux in DC to provide couture clothing for the production.

Promotion for ‘DANCE AMERICA #RiseUP’ is already in full swing with the colorful pair appearing and on various global media platforms. First on ‘The YoShow’ 100th Show celebration with radio hosts, duo Jeff Porrini & Jewel Teti, where they announced their newest collaboration project.

Mr Frazier was a guest recently on the streaming network RVNTV’s Renaissance Living, interviewing with show creator and host Denise Pereau, where the ‘Dance America #RiseUP’ mini doc music video had a global preview. Montgomery shared the story of the videos inception and the importance of the messaging for all Americans during these uncertain times.
