In Their Words: "The video for 'Back to the Sea' — shot on location in Charleston, South Carolina — re-interprets the theme of a return to a longed-for place from the past, following the experiences of an out-of-place mermaid searching for a feeling of belonging. Photographer, musician, and former Charlestonian Scott Simontacchi shot and edited the video, capturing a breathtaking sense of discovery in a beloved setting with his unique artistic eye. My dog, Cracker Jack, makes a cameo at the beginning for good measure." — Violet Delancey
