“Rescue Me” is the first single and Music Video from the upcoming album, Hypothetical Lifeforms, from the genre-bending producer, Kris “Halo” Pierce. Based on a jam session that was aired live on Facebook with Kim Cameron and touring keyboardist, Federico Colloca, the lyrics have a topical reference to current events without tokenizing the subject. Rescue Me exists in two forms on the album: as a playlist friendly edit and then reprised as a full length, extended jam in the denouement portion of the album. The music video was shot in Key West, Islamorada, Miami Beach, and Ft. Lauderdale, and is visually tied to themes from the upcoming, children’s animated film, Seaper Powers: In Search of Bleu Jay’s Treasure, on which Pierce serves as sound designer, music producer/supervisor, and post-production mixer.
