Island singer and songwriter KINLEY released a music video in late September for her song “Tuesday’s Child” off her second album, KINLEY.
“Tuesday’s Child” highlights the challenges of growing up, feeling confident in yourself and navigating the social landscape of high school. Back-to-school might look a little different this year, but the same anxieties around fitting in and bullying are always there.
The video features an exclusive verse from Vince The Messenger (Daniel Butterfield) and begins with a candid interview of KINLEY with local PEI artists, Daniel Butterfield and Zaneta Ambassa.
When asked why KINLEY included the interview in her latest video, she explains, “With everything that has been happening in the world over the last few months, I felt like there was more I could do to share the voices of others, especially the voices of BIPOC artists. As someone who spent most of my career in the Canadian folk scene—where almost everyone around me looked like me—I knew that I could leverage this spotlight; I knew that it was time for me to share the microphone again.
“Vince and Zanetta are both strong voices in my community who are achieving excellence and I have admired them both for so long. I wish I had some of their advice when I was going back to school.”
“Tuesday’s Child” can be viewed on YouTube.
