I made a video for the new Josienne Clarke song ‘If I Didn’t Mind’ and it’s live now on the Rough Trade Records YouTube channel.
I shot it at Watercolour Music studios near Fort William with Nick, Mary & Rycote the dog helping out, a long week in the shadow of Ben Nevis. In my video, you’ll meet the cast of characters Josienne assembled to help her make this record: Mary Ann Kennedy, Elliot Galvin, Dave Hamblett, & Sonny Johns. I’ve never before been in the presence of musicians of this quality. What a privilege it was to be there, behind the scenes, looking in from the outside at a process that not many people get to see. I think you’ll love the results; the album is a perfect thing & I hope my video gives at least a vague sense of what it was like to be close to making it.
