While some artists may shy away from divulging their life story in their music, there are artists that use their music to share some of the most vulnerable stories. One artist that takes the latter path is C.S. Armstrong. The Houston-born artist released his debut album Truth Be Told in March. The 10-track project is raw, honest, and gives you a glimpse into who C.S. Armstrong is.
Now, Armstrong is back with a visual for "Still Can", which is featured on Truth Be Told. While the Torky produced song begins with somewhat of an old western vibe, mid-way through things move into a gospel and soul realm with the church organ and tambourine. Armstrong's raw, soulful voice conveys an emotion that leaves you feeling every word of his lyrics.
"Still Can" is the perfect soundtrack for the Racheal Weathers directed visual. Armstrong sings, "Everyone is known to the pain that they seen'/But don't nobody care, we ain't fucking human beings." The video goes between depicting the inner turmoil of a black man and clips of various historical moments of racial injustice against black people. Armstrong and Weathers have created a soul-stirring visual that resonates.
Watch C.S. Armstrong's "Still Can" visual, and press play on his new album Truth Be Told.
