Cashavelly Morrison Addresses Women’s Rights Issues with New Video for Debut Single 'Long-Haired Mare'

Americana folk singer and songwriter Cashavelly Morrison has released a video for her first single "Long-Haired Mare", released in June. The video, which is directed by Celia Rowlson-Hall of HBO's Girls, and features Mary Jane Ward, can be viewed here:

The soft colors, painting-like seaview, and the slow phase of the video complement the sorrowful atmosphere of the song. The female characters, one lying down in the sand and the other dressing up in a coat, draw from the tragic lyrics. According to Cashavelly Morrison, the lyrics tell a story of a woman who wants to save her daughter from abuse but is ultimately punished for it. The singer-songwriter explores family roles and women's and children’s rights in her songs. Together, the video and the song form an aesthetic and artistically profound combination addressing important social issues.

Cashavelly Morrison is currently working on her debut album The Kingdom Belongs to a Child, which will be out in September.
