Kelsey Lu – “Morning After Coffee” Video

Kelsey Lu’s “Morning After Coffee” is an exquisite breath of fresh air, especially as the first sounds to hit my ears to begin the week. The NYC via North Carolina classically trained cellist uses nothing but her gorgeous, well-controlled voice and sparse cello plucks to transfix listeners into a beautifully melancholy mood. Director Leslie Satterfield’s “Morning After Coffee” clip is equally as pretty in it’s own right, with Lu wandering autumnal woods and intertwining limbs with a partner in a wonderfully poetic way that mimics contemporary dance movements. Slowly, delicately strumming her cello, Lu is mesmerizing in her performance. She is clearly special, and it will be a joy to see her develop as an artist. Watch the gorgeous visuals below.
