Reyna Roberts knows the value of putting up a good fight. Born prematurely in Anchorage, Alaska and at risk of severe developmental disadvantages, she proved doctors and experts wrong by not only finding her voice, but turning it into a brilliant gift.
Now in Hollywood, she’s a long way from Alaska, but hasn’t lost that fighting spirit. She knows that nothing is a given, and has immersed herself in musical studies, classical piano, and has been on a relentless pace ever since. Her first single, “Lying to Myself,” got her foot in the door, and her follow up EP announced her arrival with authority. The Beginning EP was inspired by her experience in high school, making her the perfect artist to appear on the Spring 2016 High School Nation tour, headlined by Drake Bell.
The standout track on The Beginning EP was the fiery “I’m Coming For Ya.” The track is a warning to anyone who might be thinking about crossing Reyna. Don’t do it. Though she is as sweet as can be in person, she is a determined artist with a vision that will never be compromised.
Using a mixture of black and white and limited color shots, the “I’m Coming For Ya” video is a feisty piece of art that fits perfectly with the lyrics’ statement. Whether it be inside of a downtown LA loft, hidden in the back alleys beneath the concrete jungle, or fully illuminated with a colorful blast of lighting, Reyna and her crew are on point. The natural interplay with the camera makes it all feel so effortless, especially shots of Reyna and her muscle keeping an insubordinate pair under close watch. Their crime is a mystery, but they’ve made their bed and now it’s time to sleep in it. When Reyna Roberts says she is coming for you, don’t say you haven’t been warned!
