Son of Cloud (the moniker of Jonathan Seale)new video, “How To Love You Today,” from his self-titled debut album.
“Learning how to love someone well is always harder than you expect,” Seale explains. “I thought I finished writing this song three years ago but this month I realized that I'll never be able to stop writing it. For me, truly loving someone has meant learning how to change and adapt my love as my partner changes and grows.”
Born in the flatlands of Texas and raised in the jungles of South America, Seale was dubbed "Son of Cloud" as a child, by the Yukpa indigenous tribe of Venezuela, at a time when he was struggling to understand his identity. “My parents were medical volunteers in the jungles on the Venezuelan/Columbian border, so death, disease, poverty, colonialism, and imperialism were all realities that I grappled with on a daily basis. Moving to the United States as a teenager was destabilizing but the two things that saved me from being consumed by bitterness were my family and the discovery of American music. This album is a tribute to both of those things. Over the past 10 years, I’ve squirreled these songs away like journal entries between projects produced for other artists, knowing that one day I would share them. This year, for the first time, I’m embracing the name that I was given and sharing this music with the world.”
