East of 8th - One More Video Premiere

“Nashville singer/songwriter Elisabeth Beckwitt recounts her story of addiction in her ethereal track, “One More.” Beckwitt, who has maintained her sobriety for five years, seeks to provide insight into the painful fight that consumes the entire bodies and souls of those in the struggle.

The video, produced by Vibe Nashville, is a continuous and fluid observation of dancer Therese Ronco in a Nashville warehouse, who expresses the battle of addiction through dance.

Aside from Beckwitt’s angelic vocals that invoke hope-tinged melancholy, poignant meaning can be found even in the video’s smallest details—the emptiness of the space and the physicality of the dance itself mirrors the lonely solitude and struggle of addiction. The sunlight shines through the warehouse windows and illuminates the floor, as the dance brings the performance into the sunshine, and in the next very moment, relegated to the shadows, as the dancer fights her way back to the light. Ronco’s identity is not the focal point of the video, her face frequently obscured by her long hair. Addiction itself is nameless, faceless, and impacts us all in some way.”
