Kylie Hughes Premieres Halloween-Themed Music Video For “Leave It Alone”

Singer-songwriter Kylie Hughes is adding Director to her resume with the release of her self-directed music video for “Leave It Alone,” premiering today. The spooky video takes Kylie out of her comfort zone and into a dark and edgy mystery land full of creative surprises at every turn. Check out the video PopCrush calls a “Halloween dream” below.

Watch “Leave It Alone” by Kylie Hughes:

On the intense creative process, Hughes shared, “I’ve been reflecting nonstop since we’ve wrapped on what a project this particular video was for me, personally and artistically. This is my first real stab at directing and taking 100% control of my vision. This video was completely all of MY hands on deck. I’m directing, set designing, art directing and performing in 95% of the shots.”

Although this is her first self-directed video, Kylie is no stranger to creative visuals, having released a tribute to cult-classic Talladega Nights with the music video for “Heat.”

These infectious tracks come from Kylie’s self-titled album, released earlier this year. Kylie split her time between Nashville and Los Angeles, crafting a collection of songs that bring fans through the highs and lows of her life, showing an artist deeply rooted in knowing exactly what she wants. Working with top-notch producers like Ben Jaffe, Mike Shimshack, Mark McKee, Brent Bourgeois, and Brandon Friesen, Kylie Hughes bares it all on her self-titled album. “This album is 100% authentically me,” Kylie remarked, “For the first time I’m really, really proud of what I’ve created and curated.”

Kylie Hughes – Album Review

 

Singer/songwriter/guitar Kylie Hughes delivers, for the most part, a satisfying and impressive debut album with 12 songs cover the rock, pop, folk and country genres exploring what is personal in the young artist’s life so far. The material is often fun and playful. Three songs in, the material sounds slick, well-produced and is very commercial. Each number is incredibly catchy.

By the third song, the tone takes more of a dramatic turn that makes one stand up and really notice. The material becomes deeper, more poignant with simplified, pared-down production style placing the material front and center. Hughes’ vocal performance is given a real workout and test. For the most part, she sings in a breathy and girlish voice. But by the third song, there is really a change. Hughes starts to sing differently. She really challenges herself with the more complicated material in which she shows more maturity and depth in her singing but with a world-weariness that belies her years. Yet, Kylie is never “the victim” in her songs and comes out of most difficult situations a better person and stronger.

Having sung the National Anthem before a John Mayer concert, shared the stage with the Beach Boys, Jewel to name a few high-profile performances, Kylie Hughes is an artist on the rise and one to watch for.
