Josephine Okujeni - Can't Breathe - Stereo Stickman

Josephine Okujeni Can’t Breathe


Simple production accompanies an almost acoustic performance of piano and vocals from soul singer and pop songwriter Josephine Okujeni.

Can’t Breathe is a deeply personal single, one that stands tall on the meandering nature of the vocal and these decidedly personal, poetic lyrics.

In the backdrop, the piano offers up a fairly refreshing, recognisable progression – a key trait of the completed single. Other than this, there’s no musical build-up, no further layers of detail or reinforcement, only the clear rising passion and emotive honesty of the leading voice.

Josephine pours her heart and soul into the process, and this is further underlined by the equally simple yet captivating accompanying video – depicting the artist lost in the moment, performing yet also considering in depth the profound and powerful nature of these lyrics.
