LOUIS YORK CONTINUES TO USE ART TO PROMOTE SOCIAL ISSUES WITH THE RELEASE OF NEW VIDEO TO SINGLE “NERDS”
Weirdo Workshop band Louis York (a.k.a. Chuck Harmony & Claude Kelly) continues to use their art to promote social issues featured in today’s headlines, as they release the official video for their single “Nerds,” which is featured on Masterpiece Theater-Act I (Click Here). The song, which kicks off with a self-esteem-boosting '80s rock/power ballad anthem, delves into a politically thought-provoking piece that questions the ways of the world (especially in today’s climate) and music. “Nerds isn't just a song, it's a call to action. We had to make sure the visual was equally as powerful. We all feel a little nerdy at times and it helps to have a song that reminds you that you are okay being who you are,” states New York Native Claude Kelly. “Standing up for what you believe in can be scary and this video let's all the weirdoes know that we are right there with them, wondering if we're making our heroes proud and trying to figure out how to be better for ourselves and the world.” Known as multi-Grammy nominated production and songwriting team Chuck Harmony & Claude Kelly (Rihanna, Britney Spears, Bruno Mars, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson among others), the duo strongly believes that music can be used as a change agent to help educate and inspire much like their predecessors, Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye, amongst others. Previously, they released the video “Hipsters” off their current EP Masterpiece Theater- Act II (Click Here) that spoke on self-esteem, individuality, and bullying. In addition, the video has been featured on Music Choice, MTV VOD, and Aspire among others. Partner Chuck Harmony adds, “We are actively trying to establish ourselves as intelligent musicians who can approach art creation in a way that's not only commercially viable but can also serve as a voice that speaks to the cares and concerns facing humanity,”.
