TO YOU, WE SURRENDER is the bold new single from solo artist Benjamin Akira Tallamy
Renowned for his inventive musical style and intricate lyrics, Ben is a seasoned multi-instrumentalist and performer. His sixth studio single explores the concept of persona, rising gently from rippling folk guitar into a full orchestral soundscape.
The song’s music video was shot on location in Emmanuel Hall, a theatre in Exeter and involved many talented professionals, all of whom waived their fee to contribute to the project. Ben says that the video was “a testament to the collaborative nature of film and further proof of the rich pool of creativity that exists in the Southwest.”
The most ambitious section of the film features a party scene of over 40 extras and was filmed entirely on a drone.
“Benjamin Akira Tallamy’s evolving art sees a purposeful communication through music and lyric. He reaches deep for the narrative that’s trying to be heard - whether circumstantial words of wisdom, impressionistic poetic phrases evoking cinematic imagery, or even grand scale metaphor; it all has resonance and conviction.” - Jamsphere Magazine
