U.S based Australian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist SINEAD BURGESS has dropped her latest music video offering, ‘Wildflowers Of Colorado’, a heartbreaking track from her debut acoustic album, ‘Damaged Goods’.
Produced by a compact US creative team, Chelsea Edmundson (Director), Seth Fuller (Cinematographer) and Burgess, the crew took to a picturesque property just outside Joshua Tree, California to film, making it the second instalment of a 3-video series shot in just 24 hours.
‘I’ve always wanted to make a music video for a song that was an album favorite, not necessarily a single. Wildflowers of Colorado holds such a deep place in my heart, and always seems to be the one that speaks to people live which I’m incredibly grateful for. It’s a simple story shot in a simple way and I am so proud of what we were able to capture out in the desert in such a short period of time. My video team (Seth and Chelsea) are such bad ass creatives, so it was an absolute joy to make. Also, Joshua Tree scenery is to die for.’
Penned solo by Burgess, she recounts the bittersweet feeling of writing the track and the emotion behind it.
‘For me, this song was begging to be told in it’s entirety. It’s not your standard 3 minute love song, it’s definitely a journey. It speaks to the idea that sometimes love can live on despite the time that passes.’
The video for Wildflowers of Colorado is in support of Burgess’ raw & stripped back debut album Damaged Goods, after it made an impact in the top 10 on both the Australian (#6) & U.K (#3) Country Albums iTunes Charts upon release. The album is also Burgess’ first self-produced, independent project.
Sinead’s career has seen her support major artists such as James Bay, The Script, Don McLean, Joe Bonamassa, and more recently, mega British country music act, The Shires.
