Nashville-based Canadian artist Shantaia has released an official music video for her charting single “Broke To Brand New” where she gets to call in her years as a softball player for an impressive swing.
On the video, she shares:
All the anxiety and stress leading up to shooting this music video was left out on the floor (literally) in the making of this video. Directed by Ryan Nolan, I had the idea to set up my own smash room to physically break things and watch them become brand new again, and Ryan completely jumped on board to bring this vision to life. Funny enough, when we started shooting and came to our first “break”, Ryan asked if I could swing hard enough, and all those years of hitting home runs in softball seemed to really pay off, because it exploded! From there, the video was just so fun to shoot, and it’s also so much fun to watch back and see what Ryan pieced together and created!
Shantaia has performed at Nashville’s Whiskey Jam, The Listening Room Cafe, Americana Fest, Cavendish Beach Music Festival, and Dauphin’s Countryfest and has earned multiple Saskatchewan Music Award nominations, along with a SCMA Award for Emerging Artist of the Year.
