Julius Rodriguez – multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and ‘rising jazz phenom’ (NPR) – releases a new single “Where Grace Abounds” accompanied by a stunning music video. The song is a gospel-infused, vibing meditation about self-acceptance and gratitude, and the music video stars Julius and dancer Joyce Edwards in a minimalist and moving metaphor exploring those themes. Watch the music video here. This is the third single from the debut album from Julius Rodriguez Let Sound Tell All set for release June 10 on the legendary Verve Records.

Rodriguez also previously announced a new show date in NYC on June 15 at the Sultan Room to celebrate the release of the album.

The vibing gospel meditation “Where Grace Abounds” shows Rodriguez’s profound spiritual side. The self-reflective composition is, according to Julius, “a song I wrote at a time where I felt like I wasn't being the best version of myself yet, and still a lot of great things were happening to me. So it’s me being grateful for being in the situation I'm in, even though I felt like I didn’t deserve it.”

It begins as a duet between Rodriguez on piano and Hammond B-3 organ, speaking to himself through these two instruments and showing the profound compositional understanding and restraint. Eventually, Giveton Gelin’s trumpet and Hakim’s voice arrive as late -in-the-song punctuations, providing an ethereal and echoing chamber of reflection. Drew Ofthe Drew and Jon Castelli mix it into a ghostly, gospel-like wonder.
