I’m hoping to make 2023 a big year in music. Not only will I release my first full-length country album, but I’ll be supporting the first single of the new year with my first-ever professional music video.
Working with Aj and Johnny from Roadhouse Productions, we shot the music video on October 17th. We started at one of Stratford’s most Iconic live music venues and restaurants, Revival House. A converted baptist church in downtown Stratford, Revival House is a stunning venue for live music. I’ve been fortunate to hold a couple of concerts there over the years, so it’s a fitting place to film my first music video.
We shot a couple of the ‘live music’ scenes of the video on the main floor, as well as the balcony off the Belfry. I enlisted the help of Hamilton actress Shannon McKinnon, who played the lead female role in the video.
We then moved to Stratford’s hottest new eateries, Rockwell Lounge, only half a block down the street. This is where things got really fun! I was joined by a group of friends for dinner, and then they provided the backdrop for the next shot, which shows scenes with the female lead at a table with a love interest, and me at the bar singing. This created the perfect shots of a packed house, for the scene.
A huge thanks to everyone who came out for a fun night and supported me to help make this happen!!
