Austin-based, Houston-bred hip-hop creative Clova recently joined forces with Eric Sattler of NVision Films to breathe life into the song Ever Since. The song, a testimonial to having faith in yourself and chasing your dreams despite what others may think or say, is perfectly embodied by parallel lines of action : a confident young man finding himself, and an artist comfortable enough in his own skin to be in the moment and reflect. Props to all parties involved for creating yet another standout music video in a year of Austin killing the music video game.

I’ve known Nosaprise for close to ten years… friends of friends. He’s always continued to amaze me at his ability to both push the boundaries of his creativity and his comfortability zone. Never one to have a mundane, repetitive sound, Nosa recently released a new video for Hot Nights. Featuring some beautiful vocals by Kam Franklin of The Suffers, and some stellar directing by Apollo Stackwell, it is well worth the watch. Check out Nosaprise during SXSW 2012 this Saturday at Malaia on 6th, 8:00pm.
