Hollywood Smollywood. Events are all around SoCal during big events such as the 80th Golden Globes pre-party and the 65th Grammy’s celebration for people the weekend or night before the awards take place and this year, Anthony “Rory” Tran, also known as ART A Reasonable Truth, got some invites through networks in the industry where red (and gold) carpets, Step and Repeat photo shoots, and VIP celebrations are at the forefront.
While still very much an independent artist, the legend himself is building through new connections now that the pandemic is easing up on the world. Trippy Tran celebrates his birthday later this week and is going to be performing a small set at the 2HotRadio Super Bowl party in Arizona next Sunday on February 12th as he prepares his sophomore album release. There’s so much more in store and we will be releasing the behind the scenes segment known as Music Beyond of the “Ghost” single including footage of ART in the studio, shooting the music video, interviews and more.
This past Friday on 2/3/23, ART A Reasonable Truth premiered the music video to the new song “Ghost” showcasing an eerie cinematic performance piece that borderlines a phantom/Joker, wistfulness, ghosting (or being ghosted) and cold feelings in the world. The crazy thing is he even got ghosted on receiving photos from the original shoot and was put in the position to edit the video himself since the team he won the contest for lacked communication and gave the run around on its initial release that was slated for Halloween – on which the song did come out on.
The climate of the world proves that people can still be very much a representation of Truth’s lyrics as people on social media still play the “follow me and I’ll unfollow you back” mentality in the Hollywood environment. That may prove beyond just a city as humanity feeds itself the social media game. Nonetheless, as Sasha Colby and Luxx Noir London (RuPaul’s Drag Race season 15 stars) told him the other night at the Meet and Greet in WeHo, remember why your doing what you’re doing and don’t let anyone’s opinions try and define you.
