AS I SPEAK Unveil Emotive Video For “Mend”
The solo hard rock project, AS I SPEAK, delivers a heartfelt and powerful offering in “Mend”. The emotive music video portrays a dark and real experience shared by many of losing a loved one. While delving into a difficult topic, AS I SPEAK makes a point to focus on the cathartic nature of music as a means to heal.
“‘Mend’ is a very personal song for me and came from a place of loss. Losing a family member is always difficult but there’s a certain hell in watching someone die slowly from cancer, which is exactly what I did in 2016. I was able to find a sense of closure after finally sitting down and writing about it.” – Zach Cunningham
