Country powerhouse Ashley Jordan recently released her newest single and music video for “Angels & Demons.” The song is a stunning ballad about the journey many of us take in learning to be vulnerable and allowing ourselves to love and be loved.
Of the single, Jordan shares, “For me, the process of growing up involved the letting go of the ideals/fairytales I had as a little girl regarding love and relationships. I had to finally accept that love is sometimes messy and confusing and that often it feels like you’re being pulled in different directions – towards the light and sometimes into the darkness. My song ‘Angels and Demons’ expresses that confusion in growing up and learning to love and be loved – and about the hope for becoming who you are supposed to be.”
The corresponding music video was directed by Paul Travers, and features the dancing talents of 9 year old National Ballroom competitive dancing star Ruby Marie Taylor, as well as Tory Hitchcock and Kelsey Grills, who also features as the video’s choreographer. Shot in multiple locations across Massachusetts including the beautiful Spire Center in Plymouth MA, the video’s production team also included Cinematographer and First Assistant Camera Tommy Colbert, Lighting Director Phil Grenier, and Wardrobe and Set Designer Rae Finn.
