MIAMI, Fla. – (May 28, 2014)- Today, SJ, the emerging national raspy-voiced, soulful acoustic singer-songwriter, launched the first video in his new “Covers & Others” series. Each video in the Covers & Others series showcases the incredible work of a specific organization’s global scientific, environmental, and/or social pursuits through a video set to one of SJ’s unique cover song recordings. The series aims to spark conversation and interest surrounding each video’s topic, which brings up an important issue for social discussion.

“After I recorded these cover songs, I held on to them for a while waiting for the right way to release them,” said SJ. “My good friends, also PhD biologists, photographers and talented filmmakers, Nate Dappen and Neil Losin of Day’s Edge Productions, shared some footage of a recent project and the idea dawned on me to bring them in – among others – to create videos to the cover songs that have a higher purpose to educate and inspire fans through music.”

The series will launch with a video created by Day’s Edge Productions with highlights of photos and footage from their upcoming film on speciation – the process by which new species arise – in the Solomon Islands. The video, set to SJ’s recording of Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees,” is now live on SJ’s YouTube channel (http://youtu.be/8Xu-bRBHNH4). The second video, to be released in June, will feature another Day’s Edge Productions expedition, followed by several more videos released with different collaborators through the end of the year.

“We had the honor of working with some incredible, intelligent, kind, and passionate people to complete the Covers & Others series. There is a big world out there with so much to learn and explore. From global causes to those close to home, I think music with compelling video helps people connect the dots. It brings an emotional connection to larger concepts and ideas, and that’s what I’m passionate about,” concluded SJ.
