Ezra Vancil is looking at romantic love from a wide-angle lens. An American singer and songwriter, Vancil's new album "You" brings lyrical and melodic depth to his past experiences with love's complexities.
While in the past he has written and recorded in the rock, pop, and experimental genres, a more mature Vancil has now found a sense of permanent belonging and connection within the community of Americana artists. His life experiences shared in song can be serious and contemplative – touching on themes of addiction, depression, and divorce. But in the end, love wins. Vancil chronicles his escape from darkness with expressions of hope and a sincere love of life that are both inspiring and healing.
Recorded with multiple Grammy-nominated Producer and Engineer Mark Hallman (at the historic Congress House Studio), Vancil's album "You" is and co-produced by David Castell. The award-winning team is led by Vancil whose music and videos won several awards in the 2016 International Songwriting Competition – one of the most prestigious indie songwriting contests.
All that's missing for their upcoming music video shoot is you! Join Vancil, his small production team and
6 o’Clock Dance Theatre for the filming of album single "Settle Down Good."
Vancil invites volunteers who are video technology/film students, or feel confident shooting, to come help (and build experience) on the shoot. There will be two professional camera operators, but the scope of the shoot is wide so the team is welcoming additional talent.
