Emily Rockarts Debuts Leonardo Da Vinci Inspired Video

Emily Rockarts “Inventor"

For Immediate Release:  July 13, 2017 (Toronto, ON); Toronto singer songwriter Emily Rockarts released a music video for her new single “Inventor” that features beautiful and captivating stop motion animation created by fellow musician Matthew Bailey.  Rockarts drew inspiration from the great Leonardo Da Vinci. “He was an incredible artist, but also a brilliant scientist, who seemed to balance being a dreamer with being a realist.”

Rockarts can relate to the struggle of creating that balance. “This idea relates to my feelings about creating and innovation in art as well as any field: technology, medicine, engineering. All of our great art, inventions and buildings didn’t exist, until they did. Unless you take a chance and try to create something from nothing, you’ll never have the opportunity to see what is possible.”

On her upcoming 26 date Canadian tour, Rockarts and her band featuring Dan Rougeau (guitar), Soren Nissen (bass), and Ian Wright (drums) will continue to push boundaries with their live performances to make each performance a unique experience.  “I feel so lucky to have such accomplished musicians playing with me,” says Rockarts. “No two shows are the same, because of their uninhibited ability to reinterpret the music on a nightly basis. We’re constantly reacting to each other.”
