Eddie Chacon – Holy Hell [Video]
LA-based musician, creative director, and photographer Eddie Chacon released an instant classic with his new single “Holy Hell.” The luxuriously groovy track is produced by John Carroll Kirby and accompanied by a vibrant video directed by Sissy Chacon and edited by Brandon Bloom.
While, admittedly, the name Eddie Chacon didn’t ring a bell, I very well remember the global #1 hit “Would I Lie To You,” released exactly thirty years ago by the duo Charles and Eddie, of which Chacon was part of.
Dubbed “low-key R&B legend” by The FADER, Chacon says about his new beautifully soothing and refreshingly nostalgic song:
In “Holy Hell” I’m talking about how we forget that our happiness is determined by our headspace and how it’s up to us whether we want to live our brief time here on Earth in heaven or hell.
This sentiment couldn’t be any more meaningful or true and comes wrapped in gorgeous music and delivered by velvety vocals. Chacon adds:
After so many years without an outlet for my music I’m so grateful to be back doing what I have loved the most throughout my life. The Success of Pleasure, Joy and Happiness was such a surprise because it was a record about closure for me. I expected it to be a final goodbye to music as a way of letting go and moving on. Being invited to join the Stones Throw family is an opportunity I never thought I’d have in my life.
