Filmed on March 18th in the basement of a church in West Montreal, this very first music video of mine features me and my amazing band playing one of my favourite songs from True Story Orchestra.

Much time and stress and gasoline was invested in finding a venue that perfectly fit the vision and concept I had in my head: a rehearsal for a small-town local talent show. I really lucked out with this set - check out the ornate detailing on the 100-year old piano, and the old-fashioned checkered floor and vintage church pews lent that extra somethin' special. It took a team of 15 absolutely amazing and patient volunteers four hours to transform what is normally a garderie for pre-schoolers into what you see in this video - and it took us 15 minutes to tear everything down and get the heck outta there to avoid having to pay for extra rental time! On top crafting by hand each one of the 60+ silver stars you see hanging from the ceiling, nevermind running around trying to find red velvet theatre curtains and a working gramophone that didn't cost an arm and a leg, forget the hours spent untangling old Christmas lights to see which ones actually worked....we had a blast throughout the entire process. Special thanks go to my band for agreeing to play nothing but Marianne for three rehearsals straight and for being so patient while we did take after take after take after take after... This video was shot with a Canon 5D Mark 2 camera by Daegan McNeaney (my lil' bro!) and Alex Hofmann of Fresca Films, and props go to them for putting up with my bossiness and letting me have my own way (90% of the time).

Enjoy! And please share it with your friends.
