Music Video: Gizmo ft Nick Hakim - Lift Me Up
Gizmo, the 21-year-old bassist, has already worked with the likes of Lalah Hathaway, Bilal, Talib Kweli and Meshell Ndegeocello. The track "Lift Me Up" marks the first release of the 13-track debut album, Red Balloon. Gizmo explains the concept of the project with the following: "When you see a little kid let a balloon go at a carnival, everybody kind of looks up at it as it floats away, the balloon seems to float around, trying to find its way. I feel like that’s how most people are. We’re all trying to figure out who we are, what we want to do, and what we stand for—all striving to be special, loved, or valued in some kind of way. But if the pressure gets too high, it pops at some point."
