From her beginnings over a decade ago, singer-guitarist Sarah Solovay continually demonstrates an assiduous artistic discipline. On the surface, this can be evidenced by her relatively early career success. She’d opened for John Mayer on his Battle Studies Tour, received a profiling in the New York Times, and had various singles on TV and movie soundtracks—all within a three-year span. Now recharged after a half-decade hiatus, Solovay has another defining milestone under her belt—a special video for her newest single, “Rough Draft.”
The music video for “Rough Draft” showcases stop-motion illustrations by Xiaonan Sun (ThePortraitArt), who was featured on Ripley’s Believe It or Not for his ability to produce two drawings with both hands simultaneously. What makes the video especially poignant is the interplay between Sun and Solovay. He effectively brings her lyrics to life through what can be viewed one progressive sketch, eventually forming into who she is at present, Ultimately, this video may carry the sentiment of an artist’s uncertainty through a lengthy lapse, before realizing that their impact remains resonant.
