Seattle, WA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/21/2014 -- Down North, a rock-soul-jazz blend band based out of Seattle, WA, has released their soul-funk, high-energy music video that sets the scene for the flood of talent and audience captivation this band delivers. With over 20 years of combined raw skill, the dynamic group has a flair for the soulful, hand-clapping and catchy rhythmic sounds that audiences, and the music industry as a whole, have been missing, and craving – whether they knew it or not.
Down North is on a mission to make crazy, soul music relevant again and bring it back to the mainstream. Staying true to that, the “Heartbreaker” music video set in Seattle and directed by Bob Suh, gives off exactly the cool, groovy vibe that audiences would expect at any of their shows. Reminiscent of the locale, style and feel that would ooze off of other local artists like Jimi Hendrix and Quincy Jones.
“We are completely pumped to release “Heartbreaker” as a way to align our sound with a solid visual, especially for those that haven’t heard us live,” says bass player brandon storms “our mission of delivering the hard-hitting, soulful sounds that make an impact on listeners and that have been blatantly missing from the music scene is reflected here, and one that pays homage to the insanely artistic legends not only Seattle, but worldwide.”
