Lo Artiz Ushers Us The Rawness Of Her Artistry In New Music Video “Softly”
Acclaimed singer-and-songwriter Lo Artiz has released her new music video for her single “Softly,” which was released on September 30th, in collaboration with band H A U N E R, “Softly.” She describes the emotional process of grieving a relationship ending and the heartbreak afterward.
She displays her journey to life in her music video with a performance that leaves folks to look in an exceeding trance. The river, trees, loamy sand, and long grass compose a toned-down background representing the calm and serene production of “Softly platinum. 1”, evoking the unhappiness of Artiz’s sorrow. Artiz, sitting ahead alongside the band H A U N T E R, sings from her soul, bearing all of her emotions. In contrast, the audience sees and hears Artiz’s pain and anger in her facial expressions, movements, and dynamic and superimposed voice.

Artiz has also been featured in blogs such as Earmilk, Peaches N Pop, Fashionably Early, Alfitude, and more. Lo is beyond a triple threat.
