Kind of Blue Music CEO Robbie Brooks Moore, whose label is releasing the project, said “Solid Ground” honors the very human journey of overcoming great obstacles while offering hope and inspiration to others.
“We are so proud to be a part of this project Rebecca envisioned and to which Adrianne graciously said yes. When we can support a worthy cause through the creation of great art, everyone wins,” Moore said.
Ultimately, 50 percent of the song proceeds will support Limbs For Life Foundation – Haslet is a board member and ambassador. Limbs for Life is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to providing fully functional prosthetic care for individuals who cannot otherwise afford it and raising awareness of the challenges facing amputees.
“Rebecca wrote this empowering ballad and then literally dreamed about Adrianne dancing on a ship. Her vision was so clear we went ahead and made it happen,” Moore said. “Seeing her vision translate into this striking video is just simply amazing. It’s lifted us all up. This song celebrates surviving challenges with grace and courage and finding solid ground.”
Splitting her time between Nashville and the Boston area, Correia is a classically trained musician who weaves a beautiful blend of Americana, Country and Blues with a dash of Pop into her over 200 works. She co-wrote the song “So Long Goodbye” with three-time Grammy-winner Keb’ Mo.’ The song is on his album, BluesAmericana, which was GRAMMY nominated for Best Americana Album in 2015.
A runner and Boston area native, Correia first followed Haslet on Instagram (www.instagram.com/adriannehaslet) where her story and passion for dance have been chronicled.
“I’m a runner and Adrianne’s a dancer and we both share a love of Boston and the marathon. ‘Solid Ground’ was written from my personal experience. After I wrote the song, I actually dreamed of Adrianne dancing on a historic ship owned by Tabor Academy,” Correia said. “Growing up in Rochester, Massachusetts, I appreciated the great reputation of Tabor and had previously done a seminar workshop performance for the students. They were kind enough to allow us to film on their over 100-year-old, double-masted schooner Tabor Boy, in Sippican Harbor that was piloted by their high school students. It was an absolutely magical experience.”
Correia collaborated with videographer Rob Ranney on the “Solid Ground” video. The duo had previously produced the highly acclaimed video “Oh, Nashville” which earned an International Portuguese Music Award for Best Music Video in 2015.
