The amazing and dedicated up and coming musician, Cailee Rae just exclusively premiered her stunning music video for “Anchor” with Teen Vogue yesterday. The video for “Anchor” can be seen below, take a look and see for yourself the artistry of Cailee Rae.
Cailee, who is just 16 years old, not only wrote the song, which was released today, but developed the video concept herself. The music video is a visual representation of the song’s message of not letting your inner thoughts or demons hold you back. All of the elements in the video are representations of things that hold you back. Cailee works her way through these obstacles as the song and video progress until she finally finds herself free. The video is visually stunning and Cailee’s lyrics speak with wisdom and are applicable no matter where you are in your life’s journey.
Cailee’s goal is simple, “I just want to spread love and messages through my music, and fill stadiums with people and with love. Music is something that brings people together and helps them. It’s the only language that everyone understands.”
The singer/songwriter likes to be involved in all aspects of the creative process; when writing her own music, she draws inspiration from everything she sees and hears in her everyday life. Some of her favorite places to draw this inspiration from are airports where she watches strangers in transit and envisions their stories. It is difficult to specifically define Cailee’s sound; it is a unique blend of “indie-pop” that she says you must hear in order to get a feel for her style. She also loves to be able to put her own original stamp on the music she creates, as evidenced both in her covers of popular songs and in her own original music.
2016 is gearing up to be a breakout year for Cailee as she is set to release new original music that showcases her evolution as an artist. Later this year Cailee is hoping to tour in order to connect with her fans one-on-one and truly make a difference in their lives through her music.
