Here’s a fantastic music video for a new song by Scottish band Fly Jackson. It’s powerful, beautiful, and perfectly suits the great vocals.

I’m particularly happy to share this music video on the site as I had the pleasure of working with some of the crew on another short film recently. In April 2016 I acted in a short film, ‘Limbo‘, which was also written and directed by Mia Gutierrez Maxwell, with cinematography by Fraser Stephen and production by Mollie Hodkinson. It’s wonderful to see another of their creative projects come to life.

Fly Jackson‘s new album will be released on Friday 13th May.

Kiss

I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head all week, so thought I’d post a video of it here (will see how long it’s up on YouTube…).

The video for Kiss was directed by Rebecca Blake, who worked on a few Prince tracks – including Cream and Diamonds and Pearls – and has a long career in advertising and music videos. Kiss won her the American Music Video Award.

Let’s be honest, though, it’s not about the video – it’s about the song. It’s fantastic, and his voice (especially at the end) is just incredible. Enjoy.

Gold + Cleo Samoles-Little interview

It’s been a while, but we’re back with a new interview and short film for the blog.

Watch the film here, and read an interview with Cleo Samoles-Little about this touching short film. (more…)
