This song and subsequent music video signaled a breakthrough and start of a new chapter for KAIS. With everything he’s been through, this was a reminder to the Canadian singer-songwriter that he can always seek asylum within music and art.
Triggered by love lost, “Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” came from a dark, troubled, and confused place.
Partially shot on the set of Big Fish in Alabama, the video was directed by Richard Paris Wilson.
“Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere” has already received filmmaking accolades, with Official Selections to the 19th Indie Memphis Film Festival and Montgomery Film Festival. Watch above.
