Opening her heart to listeners, Pearson shares the difficulty of long-distance relationships, and being away from loved ones in “Miles Away”. Connecting with a feeling many are faced with this year, Pearson instills a sense of community with listeners. The song serves as a true reminder, that while we are facing difficult challenges, no one is alone in their struggle.
“I want to spread positivity and love during this challenging time, and ‘Miles Away’ was a perfect way to do that.”
Why does the ASL video release of “Miles Away” hold so much value to Pearson? Her two favourite people in the world were her grandmas, of which one was blind, and one was deaf.
“One of them never got the chance to see me play live, but she could hear me, while the other couldn’t hear me, but could see me jumping around the stage and having fun.”
The ASL video allowed not only for Pearson to deepen the personal connection to the track, but also deliver to an audience who don’t always have the opportunity to watch music performed in their native language of ASL.
About Leanne Pearson
Pearson has been described as quirky, carrying an infectious smile into any room she enters. Embracing all that 2020 has thrown her way, her and her now-husband, Jordan pushed their nuptial celebrations to a safer time, but decided to tie the knot, thanks to Elivs at a chapel in Nashville, in November.
Pearson looks forward to the release of the official video for “Miles Away”, which will feature footage of her wedding day, which was celebrated in true Covid fashion … suitable, given the track was inspired by the distance the Covid-19 travel restrictions imposed on her and Jordan, her then-fiance. We look forward to the official video in 2021, but until then, be sure to watch the “Miles Away” ASL video on Youtube.
