Acoustic Truth to Release Full Length Video Just in Time for Sweetest Day

Chicago, IL – This Sweetest Day is extra special for fan favorites, Sarah Lendy and Ryan Knott of  Acoustic Truth and they are sharing the love with everyone. The local performers launched their first professionally produced and directed video for their original song; Time just in time for the annual holiday Saturday, October 19, 2013 to coincide with the annual celebration of everything sweet and lovely. The video marks a milestone for the local pair and solidifies their place on the new music scene in Chicago. On the heels of booking their first performance at the House of Blues set for January 2014 and being invited unto America’s Got Talent as well as impressive iTunes and Amazon performance listings for their song, Valentine, the video will engage new fans and serve as a treat for long time followers.

The product of a chance meeting at the airport in Los Angeles, the collaboration has resulted in a video that captivates in its storytelling, cinematography and sheer emotional draw. “When I met Sarah and Ryan during a gate delay in LA, I recognized Ryan’s guitar and struck up a conversation about music and videos. They kindly and confidently offered to play for me (and the entire airport). It took moments for people to start buzzing about the impressive and alluring lyrics and voices echoing through the terminal. Passengers basically just stopped to hear and see the two perform. It was surreal,” said Michael Estrella, Director and President of the production company Avelane Road, Inc. “It was then that I essentially offered (pro-bono) to help them with their first professional video.”

The Time video tells the story of a couple deeply united and in love over the course of a beautiful life together and the stark recognition that time is fleeting. As the sands of time sift away, the couple takes an evening to rejoice in the celebration of young love that they’ve cultivated over the past 50 years. It’s in this finely crafted celebration that we see the select personal aspects of life that define friendship, companionship and love. And in this case a bit of a twist. With local Illinois farm town community participants donating their resources, on camera time (the lead characters have been married over 50 years) and historic and iconic locations (100 year-old homes, Chicago’s Aragon Ballroom) the video reflects a special small town effort in support of Acoustic Truth's rising mercury.

The video leaves a memorable and sweet impression on the viewer and compliments the powerful vocal delivery by Sarah Lendy and impressive guitar and vocals by Ryan Knott. The emotionally telling tone, heartfelt lyrics, inviting voices, and intimate details of the video convey an undeniable take on the magic of life-long sweethearts that’s guaranteed to tug at the heart strings. As one joyful attendee mentioned at the recent private screening of the video, “there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.”

For anyone celebrating Sweetest Day, at any stage of the journey, viewing Time will be a special moment of reflection. The video can be viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veklOafOFCQ

Sarah, Ryan and Michael are available for interviews, in studio performances and call-ins.

“Whether you like alternative, country or simple love songs from any genre, Acoustic Truth delivers the heart and soul we don’t hear often enough,” said Barbara Varinaitis of Lippman Entertainment “To then realize that they are collaborating and romantically liaised as well as so involved in community service and charity is a sweet surprise.
