Call Me Ace Shares His Music Roadmap in Ford’s Mach-E Commercial by Insider Studios
Press Release (ePRNews.com) - OAKLAND, Calif. - Jun 16, 2021 - Insider Studios releases the west coast installment of their commercial series spotlighting The All-Electric Ford Mustang Mach-E, which features Billboard-charting hip hop artist and Bay Area local, Call Me Ace. In the commercial, Ace takes viewers on an excursion to show how Oakland, California fuels his creative process, endurance and commitment to making music that drives community connection.
“Artists don’t exist without the community that actually champions and lifts them up, so it’s the responsibility of the artist to pour back into those very people,” said Ace. “Community is incredibly important to any artist–the businesses, venues, restaurants, everything–and it’s embedded into the artist’s workstreams and just the way they do life. Be a servant as you’re thinking about your artistry. Instead of thinking what can I take from people? How about, what can I give? Your time, your lyrics, your effort, your resources, and your energy. You need community.”
In the feature video, Ace drives the Mach-E to Bay Area hotspots–Jack London Square (Oakland Waterfront), Blue Nile, Miss Ollie’s, Great American Music Hall, and Lake Merritt–which have inspired three of his projects, memorialized a milestone performance, and cultivated cultural connections. Additionally, the commercial highlights Call Me Ace’s songs, “Work Like That” and “Short-Term Goal” off his sophomore album, Out of Office, to illustrate his lifestyle as a full-time corporate worker and musician.
Ace’s feature installment in Oakland, is one out of three which also spotlights creatives in Austin, Texas and Assateague Island in Maryland.
