Justin Courtney Pierre Stars In “I Don’t Know Why She Ran Away”
Justin Courtney Pierre unveils “I Don’t Know Why She Ran Away,” a Lo-Fi Science Fiction tale in the style of Charlie Kaufman. Directed by Shane Nelson, “I Don’t Know Why She Ran Away” has everything – a protagonist you will both love and hate, romance, awkward comedy, a dramatic love triangle, and a killer soundtrack.
“One of my favorite movie trailers of all time is for Jean Luc Godard’s Masculin Féminin. It simultaneously tells you everything and nothing about the film, utilizing the entire Chantal Goya song Tu M’as Trop Menti. The goal was to recreate the feeling of this trailer using footage from projects Shane Nelson (Director) and I had done in the past, as well as shoot new footage in order to help tell the story. It’s a lighthearted look at an incredibly dark period of time in my life when I first got “sober,” and my wife and I first met, but the roles are all jumbled,” says Justin Courtney Pierre on his inspiration for the trailer.

Find strength in Edward and Janes’ folkicana fight song– Atwood Magazine’s premiere of “Hold Your Own” + new EP out 9/28
Yesterday, Atwood Magazine announced the upcoming release of Too Early To Tell, the new EP from Chattanooga, Tennessee-based folk-rock collective Edward and Jane, and premiered its lead single “Hold Your Own.” Atwood calls the the “folkicana fight song” “evocative and inspiring” and “instantly catchy and dazzlingly radiant,” adding: “Edward and Jane are the Americana version of The Killers, exuding passion and purpose with sonic similarities to folk-rock titans like Mumford & Sons, The Head and the Heart, and The Lumineers. Gritty, poetic lyrics depict humanity’s ability to overcome any and all of life’s hardships. ‘Hold Your Own’ was originally written about the head-first dive into young adulthood, but it captures something much more universal than that singular time in our lives. It’s a motto we can all live by, to help us get through the dark times as we strive to dwell in the light. No matter how bleak our situations seem and how bad things get, we are unfathomably resilient creatures – built to weather the toughest seasons.”

This was a place where people lived, loved and danced. An overwhelming sense of humanity surrounds all that The Blaze create and DANCEHALL is a complete reflection on said humanity.
