SAN FRANCISCO, CA (2/5)- Singer/Songwriter/Filmmaker Candace Roberts is pleased to present the release of her new music video, “Hello Ed Lee.” It’s a collaboration between herself, local filmmaker Jane Goldman and the AntiEviction Mapping Project. You could say it’s the follow up to Roberts’ 2014 release “Not My City Anymore”, a slice of political cabaret about economic inequality in San Francisco. You could also say it’s a last ditch effort to get Mayor Ed Lee’s attention. To be clear, “Hello Ed Lee” is a pop parody of Adele’s massively huge hit “Hello”, and a parody is just about the last thing Roberts ever imagined herself doing. I’m incredibly out of touch when it comes to music, but I started noticing that Adele’s song “Hello” was the only thing on the radio whenever I went into a grocery store or whatnot. I mentioned this to my four nieces, who are always trying to educate me in regards to allthingspop. Well they didn’t miss a beat and started busting out all these “Hello” parodies that were actually quite funny ... and it’s incredible the traction these videos receive. Then one evening I was hanging out with Erin McElroy of the AntiEviction Mapping Project, commiserating about San Francisco and Ed Lee. I happened to mention these “Hello” parodies and how popular they are and all of a sudden we were singing, “Hello, Ed Lee” instead of Adele’s line, “Hello, it’s me.” And that was that. “Hello Ed Lee” definitely references the original “Hello”, incorporating Adele’s ratty fur coat and flip phone (in this case, the perfect symbol of being on the wrong side of technology). Just as Adele can’t seem to get ahold of her ex, Roberts can’t seem to get ahold of Ed Lee. (Who can?) Roberts also riffs off a few of Adele’s original lyrics. Adele: Hello, can you hear me? I'm in California dreaming about who we used to be When we were younger and free I've forgotten how it felt before the world fell at our feet Roberts: Hello, Mayor Lee I'm in San Francisco dreaming about how things used to be When I could pay rent and eat; Can’t afford these here new condos cause I’m not some VIP Then we arrive at the chorus, ripped directly from Adele. “Hello from the other side” are the perfect words for a lover scorned, as in Adele’s case, or a city betrayed by its leader, who was supposed to look out for its interests. Roberts claims that San Francisco is swell if you’re on the receiving end of Tech Boom 2.0, otherwise, you just might be holding on for dear life. She laments a tale of two cities. ”Oh this city is filthy rich, yet there’s crisis in the streets.” Roberts is a Bay Area native, yet these days she finds herself in some pretty dismal places when it comes to the city she loves. “So many friends have been forced out, so many favorite haunts have shut down, so many communities have been dismantled. It feels so utterly cruel ... the disparity and the displacement.” Roberts writes her own songs and produced 2014’s much applauded music video “Not My City Anymore” from a similar place of heartbreak. In some ways, she’s horrified by her gimmicky use of someone else’s song to carry on this message. However, in employing an enormously popular tune, Roberts feels she might better draw attention to the parody’s subject matter. Roberts teamed up with filmmaker and photographer, Jane Goldman, who also collaborated on Roberts’ most recent video, 2015’s feminist anthem, “Take Back Your Beaver”. Goldman shot “Hello Ed Lee’s” parody footage and tirelessly prodded Roberts to write better lyrics. Moreover, “HelloEd Lee” departs from Adele’s rendering in its documentation of the very real faces of displaced San Franciscans. Roberts’ video incorporates maps and footage from the Anti-Eviction Mapping Projecti, a datavisualization, data analysis, and storytelling collective documenting the dispossession of San Francisco Bay Area residents in the wake of Tech Boom 2.0. The release of “Hello Ed Lee” also coincides with “SOS San Francisco: Two Weeks Of Action To Save Our City”, highlighting the garish five million spent hosting Super Bowl 50 ... “when there’s crisis in the streets.” Candace Roberts is a San Francisco based singer/songwriter, filmmaker and cabaret artist. In 2015 she released “Take Back Your Beaver”, a comic feminist video about reclaiming pubic hair and our bodies. “Take Back Your Beaver” followed the success of 2014’s muchlauded and much critiqued video “Not My City Anymore”, about gentrification and the tech industry in San Francisco. In 2010 Candace released her album “Honeymoon for One”, in which she asks herself to marry herself, and she’s been playing to full houses ever since, most notably the Fillmore, Cafe Du Nord, The Lost Church, and the Make-Out Room . She also rocks the house concert circuit and had a three year residency at Martuni's Piano Bar. Candace’s cabaret shows, often deemed “brave”, are chockfull of original songs and American songbook covers and they deliver big on social commentary and confessional storytelling, covering wideranging topics such as: sex, selfworth, cellulite, pubic hair, consumerism, gentrification, immigration, racism and more. Candace’s truthtelling extends to her filmmaking, which has also developed a distinct visual style, drawing heavily on nostalgia, saturated color palettes, overthetop production numbers and casts of thousands.
