Victoria’s Adrian Chalifour has released a music video for his single ‘The Dark’ and with it comes a change in direction.
In a statement in the music video description on YouTube, Chalifour says “the time is right to take full ownership of my artistic voice and vision. There felt like no better way to do this then by setting ‘Towers and Trees’ aside and simply being me: Adrian Chalifour.”
The music video directed by Shiraz shows Chalifour riding in the backseat of a car looking out the window and cuts to video footage of Towers and Trees performing over the last seven years.
“Shiraz and I have partnered on another video for the next single from my album,” said Chalifour. “During the making of that video I told him about the upcoming change and how it would be nice to mark it with a simple video for ‘The Dark’ since the lyrics of that song speak so poignantly to the change.”
The evolution comes months after Chalifour was a contestant on CTV’s ‘The Launch.’ During the episode, Bebe Rexha swooned over his cover of ‘Stand by Me’ and Nile Rodgers said he has a better voice than John Mayer.
Towers and Trees previously took a hiatus in August of 2016 and returned a year later at Rifflandia 2017.
“This may feel like a swerve for folks who’ve been following T&T since we ended our hiatus, but for the guys and I, it’s the strongest and most honest step forward. The band will still be around and ready to step on stage wherever and whenever it makes sense. So in some ways nothing changes, while in other ways everything does.”
‘The Dark’ will be on Chalifour’s new album ‘Joy’ due out in October. Two more singles from the album will be released over the summer with one slated to be released June 21.

Adrian Chalifour’s Announcement
Seven years ago I began this journey called Towers and Trees that has sculpted me in more ways than I can express, and connected me to more true friends than I imagined. Now it’s time to take the next step and I can’t think of a better song to mark this milestone than ‘THE DARK.’ In so many ways this song has always been about Towers and Trees and everything it represents.
On the eve of releasing new music, I’ve decided it’s time to set the T&T name aside and go forward under my own name. This may come as a swerve for some folks who’ve been following T&T since we ended our hiatus. But for the guys and I, it’s the strongest and most honest step forward. Shred, Arter and Jesse have helped me make an incredible record together that I’m so amped to share! The band (led by my Old Pal Shred) is still around and ready to step on stage wherever and whenever it makes sense. In some ways nothing changes, in other ways everything does. A metamorphosis if you will. If your heart’s still as in it as mine, I hope you’ll follow me for a few more miles down this road.
Big things are on the horizon, starting with a new single coming JUNE 21, 2019 to ring in the summer season!
