Through its sensational choreography from Tony Nominated and Emmy Winning AC Ciulla and the visual prowess of Director James Morano, Singer/Songwriter Vaeda Black has released her brand new video – “Suicide Love”! Based on her original concept, she credits Ciulla and Morano for their ability to bring her vision to life.
With the release of her latest single, “Suicide Love,” Vaeda Black takes the juxtaposition of two seemingly opposite topics and weaves them together. She creates a dark love story that illustrates the idea of being vulnerable and “showing yourself to another person and letting them love you.”
She says, “It actually started with a text message from my ex-boyfriend while we were together probably about a year ago. I don’t remember exactly what we were talking about, but he wrote ‘that’s called suicide, love.’ Something about those two words next to each other really struck me; they’re so different. I kept thinking it would be such an interesting way to express love, passion and deep wanting, so I wrote a song around it.” The combination of those two distinct feelings gives the song a truly unique sound and style.
Despite the title, and it’s darker atmosphere, Black says “it’s really a love song. Being vulnerable is hard for a lot of people, but I want this song to represent the good things that come from showing yourself to another person and letting them love you.” In an age where many artists stick to upbeat, pop love tunes, Black isn’t afraid to shake up stereotypes and create a sound distinctly her own, something “Suicide Love” showcases perfectly. With her blend of indie, alternative, and a little soul, listening to her songs comes as a refreshing break from some of the more mainstream styles.
Raised in Long Island, NY, Vaeda Black is a 17 year old singer songwriter currently in her senior year of high school. A masterful songwriter, Vaeda is able to tap into a profound and sometimes dark place and it’s certainly reflective in her music both lyrically, sonically and now visually. Live performances with her band display her ability to connect with audiences, a skill she’s developed from many years on the stage, having performed in musical theater productions starting at only 7yrs old. She started putting words to paper not long after, and eventually began turning poetry into songs at the piano in her family home.
