Huh, it turns out people do make a career from reality music television shows. Next up on our indie dive we have a brand new music video for “Diamonds”, the latest single from Canadian act POESY. The young artist behind the moniker, Sarah Botelho, burst onto the scene as a contestant on the first season of Canada’s premier music reality competition show THE LAUNCH. Ensnaring judges and audiences around the country with her performances, Botelho snagged a record deal with Big Machine Records which is where POESY would be born. Accepted into the Big Machine family with open arms, POESY dropped her debut single “Soldier of Love” and it instantly climbed the charts. Landing on the Billboard Top 40 and debuting #1 on the iTunes All Genres chart, POESY career as a professional singer chugged full steam ahead.
“The video for Diamonds is one of the things I’m most proud of thus far. I worked on it with my best friend Kate Harrison – who directed it and found our crew of talented misfits. We met for months in parks discussing how to make it perfect and I’m so grateful to her. Diamonds is largely a transitional piece and we wanted to totally capture what the version of POESY going forward was going to be.” – POESY
Now making the next step in her career, POESY is back with her next single “Diamonds” and a brand new music video. Showcasing her raw yet powerful vocals paired with her unrefined songwriting, “Diamonds” is another excellent notch in POESY’s belt. Since “Diamonds” initial release the track has already snagged over 50K streams online as well as being featured on over 17 different playlists across Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music just to name a few. Even major tastemaker outlets like American Songwriter, EARMILK, and Purple Melon are taking notice of POESY’s career so far. With a beautifully surreal music video backing up the original track, we have no doubt that “Diamonds” will make POESY a force to be reckoned with.
