Tessa Violet is a talented singer-songwriter based in Los Angeles, California. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her “Bored” single.
Tessa Violet – “Bored” music video
“I wrote ‘Bored’ at a time when I was feeling extremely isolated. I was working from home and having trouble sleeping, struggling to build community, or find things to do out of the house. Not to be super dark but I dreaded going to sleep because I was dreading facing another day. When my director Jade and I wrote the treatment for the video a few months back, I wanted to make a video that reflected that sense of uneasiness and dread, feeling like there’s no way out. Fast forward to now and it’s pretty wild this release coincides with a worldwide self-isolation. Maybe it will comfort you, maybe it will drive you crazier. Either way, we’re in this together.” – Tessa Violet
The Jade Ehlers-directed audiovisual was conceptualized and shot to convey feelings of isolation that Tessa Violet was experiencing at the time. Twists of fate now bring the video’s theme close-to-home in our current quarantined state amidst the global pandemic.
In light of the pandemic, Tessa also launched the virtual “Something To Look Forward To” tour from her bedroom, which she streams live via YouTube.

“When I discovered my knack for songwriting, I realized that everything I was wanting to express through my work on YouTube could be cemented and memorialized in songs that have the power to cross not only to other platforms but through all geographic boundaries. Also, to live on, long after I’d recorded them.” – Tessa Violet stated
Tessa Violet grew up an only child in a small town. She always had a deep desire to create authentic connections with people.
