WATCH: GRAMMY Camp Alum Kristen Castro Releases "Surrender" Video
The dreamy video full of pink hues features Castro singing and playing the guitar as a storyline of a post-breakup unfolds. Castro wanted to convey the feeling of coming to terms with the end of a relationship.
“I wanted the video to be about someone carrying memories to a waterfall trying to make sense of a heartbreak, but at the end they surrender to letting go and letting the water take it where it will," she said in a statement. "The pink hue throughout the video gives a visual feel of love and the abstract performance shots are meant for the listener to focus on the story and song.”
The single is a part of new music the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has released since leaving Maybe April. The GRAMMY Camp alum added that she could not have gotten to where is today without her GRAMMY experience.
“[The camp has] given me the confidence to never stop believing in myself or what my music has to say," she said. "From playing guitar with Keith Urban, to a backstage /songwriting experience with Brandi Carlile, to being around young emerging artists who were so talented at camp and who are now playing in bands with huge artists across the country—it’s that kind of stuff that has grounded me as an artist, kept me being a dreamer and made me grateful to the people that have helped shaped me along the way.”
