Today Gena Rose Bruce presents a brand new single, ‘Lighting Up’, with a thoughtful and powerful vocal performance that sees the songwriter at her most vulnerable and intense.
“For a long time I would just suppress how I was feeling and would give off the fake ‘I don’t care about anything’ vibe” says Gena. “But I came to a point where I was just numb. You stop the pain, you stop the joy. Lighting up is about facing reality and being honest with your feelings and choosing to walk in the light and let love in.”
‘Lighting Up’ comes accompanied by a breathtaking performance video, where Gena’s voice takes centre stage alongside the accompanying dulcet piano tones. Speaking of the video Gena said: “I think there is something special about actually being able to see what happens in the studio when a live recording takes place, there is so much that goes into creating a good sound, it’s all about the performance and the energy in the room, and the connection with each musician, and I really feel we captured that with ‘Lighting Up’, it was shot at the Iconic Sound Park Studios in Melbourne where I also recorded my album Deep is The Way, so filming a live session there also held sentimental value.”
