(Still from the ‘curly’ video by Ant Blue Jr.) Watch the video for ‘curly’: https://youtu.be/eWvd54JXYH4 Listen to When There’s Love Around: Stones Throw | Apple Music | Bandcamp | Spotify Kiefer shares a new animated video for his single “curly” from his new album When There’s Love Around, released August 27 on Stones Throw. The video is animated by artist Ant Blue Jr., who used oil pastel sketches to express Kiefer in his element. When There’s Love Around is Kiefer’s latest release on Stones Throw and deals with themes of grief, friendship, love and human connection in his trademark warm, approachable style. When There’s Love Around follows the recent Between Days EP and sees Kiefer team up with musicians and producers including DJ Harrison, Andy McCauley, Josh Johnson, Will Logan, Sam Wilkes and other compatriots for a full live band sound. Several songs were recorded in one or two takes, with any mistakes left in, true to Kiefer’s penchant for music that feels spontaneous and from the heart. Catch Kiefer Live on his North American Tour this Fall Praise for When There’s Love Around "An openhearted sonic journey that recalls 1970s-vintage Bob James one moment and 2010s-era Robert Glasper the next." - WBGO “Easygoing yet expressive magic” MOJO 4/5 “This is music for the soul indeed.” NARC 4/5 “Shackelford arranges with a cohesive, yin-yang sentiment, full of hesitancy and self-examination, that somehow, always draws blue skies." - Treblezine “A great example of what happens when a musician is both in control of their own musical path and allowed to develop it over several albums to reach their full potential.” - Jazzwise Watch other Kiefer videos: “when there’s love around” Live “i remember this picture” Live “i remember this picture” video directed by Jocelyn Woods Hi-Res Press Photos by Robb Klassen HERE
