Well Connected Rapper Soundtracks Video Which Explores Narrative Around Domestic Abuse

Maverick Sabre's third album When I Wake Up is an acutely personal and poignant body of work from the songwriter and artist and includes guest appearances from Jorja Smith and Chronixx.

Second single Her Grace features Grammy nominated artist Chronixx and the accompanying video is an arresting piece of film exploring the narrative around domestic abuse:
 
"With each of the videos for this album I've wanted to tell strong, emotive stories that carry across the feeling and message of the song. 

"Her Grace is about the unspoken unheard struggles of women that go unnoticed in society and this video feels like a glimpse into an inner battle within that." 

 
Shaun Grace, the director adds:
 
"When the opportunity arose to work on something powerful with Mav I couldn't say no. 

"I wanted to explore the day to day emotional and physical endurance needed to cope with domestic abuse and also the deeper, continuing cycles of conflict that affect both the abused and the abusers.

"Even though I've watched it dozens of times in the post process, that final shot of the baby in the bathroom leaves me wondering what their future holds.

"I made the choice to cast my baby within this film as I knew how to get the reactions I needed from her comfortably."  
 
Sabre's career began a decade ago when he appeared on the tracks Lucky and Used to Blame from the album Sense the Terror by Irish rappers Terawrizt and Nu-Centz. 

He also featured on rappers Johnnyboy and Intox's Propaganda EP and released his own tracks, such as Lonely Side of Life and Fade Away

In Emily Brontë's classic novel, romance and passion are accompanied by revenge, ghosts and death — it is definitely not just a love story between Cathy and Heathcliff.
