Southern Souls Video Coming Soon!
I had a lovely afternoon with Mitch Fillion at my producer Robbie Grundwald's home in Toronto. Mitch got footage of two tunes, "Changed" (pictured below) and my EP single "Low Light". We'll be releasing the video in anticipation of the EP release in the fall of 2017! Stay tuned!

"Turning In' is the first original I wrote on ukulele and has now become a part of my folk/soul repertoire. In this video I am joined by the beautiful Alyson McNamara on guitar and vocals and filmed and mixed by the talented Thom Varey. The stunning barn and property where this video was recorded is located in Brantford, Ontario.

The release of "Afterglow" by Lydia, is the final video in a three part series recorded at the beautiful Beaches Presbyterian Church. This video has a lot of personal weight as it was written about feeling the presence of a loved one who you can no longer hold and touch. Chris Pruden on Keys, Julian Anderson Bowes and Eric West on drums have portrayed the music so beautifully and with the help of the SoundStill Production team, the beauty of both the church and the changing light through the windows is captured.
Enjoy "Afterglow" by Lydia Persaud
"Poses" written by Rufus Wainwright has become such a joy for us to perform, we are excited to share the amazing experience with you. Recorded and Produced by SoundStill Productions, filmed at the beautiful Beaches Presbyterian Church and performed by some of my favourite people, "Poses". Hope you enjoy.

Recap of Illuminate in Dundas Square!
The Soul Motivators had such an unbelievable experience playing for close to 8,000 Torontonians in Dundas Square this past weekend. Teaming up with production company Illuminate, we played alongside some amazing dancers, acrobats and entertainers. Following our collaborative performance with the dancers, the Motivators took the stage and played a set of original music to many fresh ears. We had an incredible time :)
