I am enormously proud to share the music video for Preservation with you. I worked closely with Julia Vares,  who produced, shot, edited and patiently translated my ideas onto the screen . We shot this film over two days on the streets I grew up on in Port Chalmers, Dunedin, New Zealand. The dancer, Bebe, I met in a record shop in Dunedin and instantly wanted her to be in the film. Her grace, and self-assured-ness was astounding and for me, it fit perfectly. Bebe, and Lisa Wilkinson, who choreographed the dance completely nailed it.

“Preservation” is the title & first song on my second record. There’s an intensity to it, but I actually find it quite beautiful in so many ways. It was cleansing to write. It is about loss, reflection and the future. For some reason, during the release of the album, I struggled to fully understand it’s meaning, there’s this sort of un-conscious state I often need to enter with songwriting, where meanings tend to become clearer and more obvious to me, months, or, years later…Enjoy.
