First Look: Sy Smith gives love to a majestic land with "Camelot" video

(February 5, 2020) A few years ago, we named singer and songwriter Sy Smith as our Artist of the Year. It wasn't just because she may be - as the late JB would say - the hardest working woman in show business, but because she has spent a career always being uber-creative and true to her artistry, whether or not her muse was in sync with popular trends.

Sy's versatility was shown again last year, when she issued her critically acclaimed album, Sometimes a Rose Will Grow in Concrete, which we rated as "Highly Recommended." The album garnered international attention and was truly one of the year’s great albums.

Sy's versatility was shown again last year, when she issued her critically acclaimed album, Sometimes a Rose Will Grow in Concrete, which we rated as "Highly Recommended." The album garnered international attention and was truly one of the year’s great albums.

One of the hits from the album was the dreamy single, “Camelot,” a breezy number with a sound that harkens to the kind of engaging quiet storm jam that Minnie Riperton might have delivered back in the day. But "Camelot" is all Sy Smith, and now she has a video to give new perspective on the song.

“Camelot” the video is Sy’s love letter to the Tanzania, which she recently visited. She tells us, "The inspiration of this video was two-fold: 1) To have my love interest actually be a place instead of a person. In this case, the love interest is this beautiful region of the earth called Tanzania. 2) To relocate the idea of Camelot from what is normally considered (a medieval castle-like fortress associated with a legendary King Arthur somewhere in old Great Britain) to a REAL place, in this case - these majestic regions of Tanzania."

“Camelot” is yet another reason for SoulTracker to revisit Sometimes A Rose Will Grow in Concrete, Check out the video below and welcome back Sy Smith to SoulTracks.
