Ahead of his of Wide Awake album which arrives later in June, 21-year-old singer-songwriter, guitarist Quinn Sullivan unveiled the music video for his “How Many Tears” single. Directed by Trevor Banks, the clip features a captivating performance by dancer Matilda Sakamoto.
“How Many Tears” is a bluesy, soulful song that finds Sullivan reflecting on his feelings about love and relationships back when he was in high school.
“I had thought about myself during those times and I’d see so many guys treating girls so horribly, so I never understood why those girls would always go after those types of guys. I had never written a song about this subject before, but it just felt honest and comes from a very real and genuine place, which is why it’s one of my favorite songs on the new album. Trevor Banks, who directed the video, suggested we have an interpretive dancer come in to dance to the song as I was performing it. We ended up finding Matilda Sakamoto, who was the absolute perfect dancer to fill that role. She brought so much life and emotion to not only the video but to the song.”Quinn Sullivan
