About a week ago, I reconnected with Jesse Blight, a smart director and my old dorm-mate from first year at YorkU. About fifteen minutes into our reunion, we agreed to shoot a video for the Broad Way Sleep song, Shy & Out of Season. About three days later we shot the video—mostly on location at the vintage store Cabaret, Queen Street, Toronto.
About two days ago, Broad Way Sleep was honoured to learn that Shy has been selected as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition! Very exciting news. The competition is judged by Rihanna, Peter Gabriel, Timbaland, Keane, Regina Spektor, Adele, Robert Smith (the Cure), K’Naan and others.
About a day ago, I saw a cut of the video. Count on me posting that soon!
Thanks to Liana Yates for her behind the scenes photography.
