Following the release of his debut album Baby Blue and the Super Moon, tiedye ky returns with a heartfelt video for his standout single “Living Right Now” alongside a new initiative titled the Pipus Forever Mural Project. The simple, yet emotional visual is a tribute to his late friend Matthew “Pipus” Larsen, a local creative standout and beloved community member.
The Pipus Forever Mural Project is inspired by the contributions and impact that he had on the local Philadelphia community. Pipus’ impact on the local community was seen mostly from the comedy videos that he and his partner posted online. To raise awareness and funding for the project, tiedye ky has launched a GoFundme that can be accessed here.
“The “Livin’ Right Now” music video is a tribute to my late homie Pipus. When I heard of his passing, I didn’t believe it at first. I almost laughed and thought “man he really got us this time, this will be his ultimate skit. It’s his way of putting on his greatest show.” He was always smiling, always laughing so hard. His presence in a room outshined and broke down the very walls he stood within.
When I got home from his funeral, I wallowed in front of my computer for a bit before writing easily one of my favorite songs ever in a single session. From start to finish, I spilled my emotions in one swift motion. Matt and Kenny, I love you. Thank you for everything.” – tiedye ky
