Out singer-songwriters Eli Lieb and Steve Grand have joined forces for a heartbreaking breakup ballad called “Look Away.”
In the video, Lieb and Grand sit back-to-back as they belt out the emotional goodbye song.
“We filmed this the day after my boyfriend and I broke up, and the footage is so real and raw, that I struggled if I even felt comfortable putting it out,” Lieb told Pride.com. “I wasn’t sure I wanted everyone to see the pain I was in. But then I realized that this pain came from love and is a part of life most people experience at some point – we’ve all been there. I hope it helps remind people that pain and love are so closely related to not forget how powerful love is.”
“Eli is a real pro,” Grand said. “It was a true pleasure working with someone who knows what they want creatively. Eli kept the process streamlined. Though we are in a similar line of work, our personalities are very different, which I think we really got to see throughout the day we shot the video. I’m an irreverent goofball and Eli is a more serious guy just really focused on his craft. I think it makes for an interesting collaboration.”
