"Honest Man" - Isabelle

Music Video | 2020

Honest Man tells a transparent and difficult story of a family’s unhappy reality. Using a tragic fairy tale as a metaphor for an unhappy marriage, and the consequences of a mother’s in-action and a father’s use of lies to control, the lyrics lay out a chronological road-map of a daughter learning the expectations of her as a woman from her mother.

 

These expectations are finally challenged by an “Honest man” who defies the expectations and offers a different reality, an honest and loving one.
