Video Premiere: Sophia Knapp - "Close to Me"

Music  |  Video

Singer-songwriter Sophia Knapp allowed her vocals to take center stage on 2012’s Into the Waves, and now she has integrated visuals with a music video for the track “Close to Me.”

”’Close To Me’ was shot in L.A. a year ago,” says Knapp. “Two days straight of mayhem and fun. Perhaps under the influence of bringing a love song to life, I fell hard for L.A., and now call it my home.”

The video was directed by Daniel Katz and inspired by A Man and A Woman, the 1966 French film.

“Daniel Katz races cars himself, so he hand picked the hot wheels,” said Knapp. “Falling in love, to me, feels like driving a car too fast, so I loved Daniel’s race car concept from the get go.”
