Watch Blue Wilson's music video for 'Big Rock' here 🎬
WHAT WE HAVE TO SAY:
Blue Wilson is the solo project of songwriter and producer, Michael Stevenson. Last week, the talented musician shared with us their breathtaking music video for their new song ‘Big Rock’ and upon seeing it for the first time, we knew this project was gonna be special. Everything from Michael’s writing style, to the instrumentation and soundscape throughout the track, to even the beautiful cinematography around the music video.
There’s something truly magical about this project and the genuine energy that radiates off of Michael’s voice is enough to keep us attentive and aching for more... enjoy!
WHAT THE ARTIST HAS TO SAY:
“Once Stephen, the director, and I landed on the idea of ice skating cowboys, we knew casting could be difficult. We heard whispers of a man named ‘wild john’, a sort of enigmatic figure in the greater Los Angeles ice skating scene - and upon watching a YouTube video of his skating we knew he was our guy. Tonally, we wanted to match the nostalgic and romantic quality of the song and I think we achieved that really well within a fairly loose narrative structure. Stephen and I had discussed creating a video that was almost hyper-cinematic- Hype Williams style- to juxtapose the lo-fi quality of the song. I think too often ‘bedroom/indie” artists fall into the same mindset that their videos need to have a faux-vintage / VHS aesthetic and I wanted to steer clear from that.“
