LaShawn Powell, also known as Elcee has released a visual for his track, “HELP”, produced by TREET$. Elcee was born in Halifax but currently lives in Toronto.
Elcee has done something good with his new track and video; he’s purposely made “HELP” a resource to help anyone struggling with addiction and depression, especially alcoholism. Elcee candidly talks about his own experiences through his verses, and shows his fans and his listeners that it’s okay to ask for help, and that getting that help will subsequently make you a stronger, wiser, and more optimistic individual. Elcee captures alcoholism perfectly; not just as sporadic event, but as a dangerous, reliable friend: “Would you help me out/Would you help me out, Mr. glass bottle?”
I commend Elcee on this track and visual. He’s got his head on straight, making honest music that matters, whether it be a track like “HELP” or a homage to Toronto in “For My City”. I can’t wait for what’s next.
