Hailing from rustic Darke County, Ohio, Americana/indie-soul act, Shannon Clark & the Sugar have a new video for their single “Carry Me.”
The husband, wife, and daughter team write and perform their original music about personal losses, struggles, and the human condition. This track weaves together heartfelt emotions with a distinctive flair.
The trio are slated to release their first full-length album Marks on the Wall, produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, U2, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Emmy Lou Harris, Willie Nelson) this coming May.
This track garnered # 3 artist on Apple News in the month of December and was called a “raw emotion” and “bittersweet beauty” by Chillfiltr Magazine. Watching the video you can hear why. This is a harrowing tale that can bring you to tears.
Directed by international award-winning filmmaker Shawn Spitler, the video was shot over three days in and around Darke County’s agricultural landscape. Key scenes were crafted at the local bar, The Triangle and Hunt’s Butcher Shop. It follows a single mother who is struggling with addiction after losing a child. Set in Midwest Ohio in Winter.
“The song was very personal for our family and when I got the call to work with Shawn [Spitler] it was just a no-brainer that we wanted to make this happen in our hometown. The song is about coming home and it just made sense,” says Clark.
