US based Australian singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist SINEAD BURGESS releases her brand new, ballsy music video ‘PRAISING GOD, RAISING HELL’, the current single off her debut album, ‘Damaged Goods’.
Produced by a compact US creative team, Chelsea Edmundson (Director), Seth Fuller (Cinematographer) and Burgess, the crew took to an airstream property just outside Joshua Tree, California to shoot.
‘The trailer we filmed in is literally what it looks like inside my head. I’m a huge fan of all things vintage and 70s in particular, so when we found this property, we just had to get out there. It was the location of my dreams.’
Shot as one continuous take, the video shows Burgess run through a spectrum of emotions whilst playing the song in her trailer. The video is a real insight into Burgess, as it portrays her in a ‘no frills’, raw and honest state, perfectly alining with the theme of the entire album.
‘I really wanted to make something that aesthetically looked like me in every way, but still let the song stand on its own. Chelsea (Director) and Seth (Cinematographer) were an absolute dream team to work with. They’re such deep, deep creatives and completely connected with my vibe from day one. We filmed this video, and 2 others in the space of 24 hours and I’m incredibly proud of what we achieved with such a small crew in such a short amount of time.’
Burgess is set to release the trilogy of music videos from self-produced debut album Damaged Goods, after making an impact in the top 10 on both the Australian & U.K Country Albums iTunes Charts upon release. The album is also Burgess’ first 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, after being stumbled upon playing a small bar in Nashville by the band.
