Sophie Lloyd & Chris Robertson Share Let It Hurt

British guitar sensation Sophie Lloyd has shared the music video for latest single Let It Hurt (Feat. Chris Robertson). As well as writing the emotional lyrics for the song, the Black Stone Cherry frontman contributes some wailing, bluesy licks to complement Sophie’s own rip-roaring solo.

Let it Hurt is one of my favourite songs on the album.” declares Lloyd. ”I had the main riff for this song written a couple years before the album just saved on my computer somewhere. Then when we started writing I was looking through my old archives and re-discovered this and we (Chris Painter and myself) wrote the rest of the instrumental in one day. We knew we wanted a really powerful blues/rock vocalist on this song and Chris Robertson just seemed perfect. He has one of the most incredible voices and sings with so much soul and feeling, I’m so honoured to have him transform this song into something amazing.”

“When Sophie reached out about a collaboration I was admittedly nervous, I had never written a song with someone I had never met in person before!” shares Robertson. “What came to be was a track that I think we can all be proud of, a passionate-intense guitar filled anthem about moving forward in times of darkness! I couldn’t be more proud to be invited to be a part of Sophie’s journey!”

Check out the video below:

Filmed in Nashville, Tennesse, the video also includes a guest appearance from fellow Kiesel artist Cole Rolland, who takes up bass duties in the video. “The video tells a story of connections you have with people around you and how the experiences you share have such an impact,” continues Sophie. “It follows the story of a girl and her father driving and fixing up this car, making great, happy memories together. Then as the years go on and the girl gets older the father has passed on and is no longer with them, but she can still feel that connection and is reminiscing about all the good times they had together. I hope people can watch this video and get a sense of comfort that if they have ever lost someone, know they are always with them.”
