Rozsa and Saint Soldier start campaign to raise money for music video

An Abbotsford couple has begun a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a music video about domestic violence.

Amrit Saggu (whose stage name is Saint Soldier) and wife Rozsa have had their song Dark Shades approved by CreativeBC for a music video grant which will match, dollar for dollar, any funds they raise, up to $10,000.

The pair say this is a big project for them on an emotional level. Saggu said the topic of domestic abuse is something he has wanted to speak on for years but only recently found the courage to do so, alongside his new wife.

“Together, we wrote Dark Shades in an effort to spread a message of hope, self love and awareness around the realities of domestic abuse,” he said.

The song depicts a mother in an abusive marriage as she fears for her and her son’s life.


Rozsa said the couple hope that the song is a message not only to those experiencing abuse but also for the abusers.

“We can only hope this song comes on strong and unveils the courage someone may need to take a step to better their lives or those around them,” she said.

Saggu said the music video will be produced by the same film crew who participated in making previous videos for his songs A Stray – which addresses gang violence – and Farmer Suicide.

He said the Dark Shades video will have “dark, yet stunning, elements,” including flashbacks, “Where did I go wrong?” moments and a twist ending.

The Kickstarter campaign runs until Dec. 16 and can be found by searching “Dark Shades – Music Video” at
