Director Statement

Alyssa wanted to express to the world how hard it is to reach your goals as an independent artist when there is such a strong tug-of-war between fans and the industry. Many music fans claim they want you to express yourself genuinely as an artist, yet they try to sway you in the direction of their choosing, and they don’t understand why you deserve to be paid. The industry offers you cash, but then, naturally, cares more about your market appeal than your vision. Alyssa tackles her experience with this conflict intimately and intelligently, and I feel that if I related to it so intensely, others will as well.
