Canadian singer-songwriter JF Robitaille has travelled a long emotional road to get to where he is now. This is incredibly apparent when listening to his upcoming album, Rival Hearts, an album which tells honest stories inspired by human experience. To get a taste of what we mean, just press play on the FILTER premiere of Robitaille's new music video: "Jessie."
Rival Hearts is set to come out August 27 via Sparks/Universal Music.
The track is carried by a soothing melody that sways and comforts in a way that's fitting for a rainy day. The video handles the internal remembering of a loved one with creative layering and light. The soft trumpets in the background of "Jessie" allow Robitaille's low croon to shine rather than overpower it.
Despite "Jessie" being a love letter to one person, it's themes and emotions are shared by all.
