Queensland singer / songwriter Caprice Quinn is calling on women to unite with No More Silhouettes, a song and music video created especially for International Women’s Day, 8 March.
In collaboration with fellow Australian artists, Kaylah Truth and Elena Maria Wangurra, Quinn proudly flies the flag for modern-day girl power with No More Silhouettes song sales on 2017 International Women’s Day (IWD) going to Dress for Success, an organisation empowering women to achieve economic independence.
“The concept of strength and unity among women resonated so deeply I knew I had to create something very special,” said the 30-year-old urban songwriter on creating the track for IWD.
“From tapping in to the emotions while writing and producing the song, to being on set with strong, beautiful women all working together on the video, the experience was an incredible and empowering journey for all of us. And now to be able to share it with the intention to help women find their feet is very exciting.”
Written, produced and directed independently by Quinn and production partner Druovanni, No More Silhouettes is a metaphorical call to arms for “sisters all around the world to unite, illuminate and shine their light for a brighter future.”
The film clip is set in an underground bunker, which Caprice said characterises, “all the potential that lies within women, despite constant, varying degrees of oppression and gives us a place to rise from.”
On the back of releasing her debut album, Le Femme, Caprice Quinn’s ode to the strength of the feminine spirit is a reminder that in the International Women’s Day quest for gender parity, we all – men, women and children – have a positive role to play.
Thought provoking and inspiring, No More Silhouettes is the sonic spark of a revolution; with features from Aussie rap queen, Kaylah Truth and Elena Maria Wangurra, this all-women collaboration celebrates and supports International Women’s Day in its call to be #BeBoldForChange on March 8.
