Shooting Star

Part of the Homemade Music Video Project (#4)

For this video, I invited fans ‘n friends to send in videos of themselves inspired by my song “Shooting Star”. The response was utterly delightful! Over twenty people were involved in creating the awesome, shiny footage woven together to become the latest addition to the Homemade Music Video Project. There are horses, dancing, shooting stars, cowgals, cowbells… even a cardboard trombone!
Huge thanks again to everyone who participated. You’ll find the full list of their names in the credits at the end of the video. xo

Angels In Snow

Part of the Homemade Music Video Project (#3)

Filmed in Wells, British Columbia on a beautifully sunny day in March, 2012.
Nestled in the foothills of the Cariboo Mountains, Wells is the land where fairytales are written… the snow is so poofy, so soft and piled so very high. I live 40 minutes to the west of this town… in an entirely different weather zone. The snow at my place is melting away under the spring sun, and what’s still around is crusted over and rock hard from night freeze. So you can see why I made the trip out to Wells to film this video… for those snow angels!
