“Produced by Hill Kourkoutis, the ballad commands your attention from the get-go and leaves you hypnotized by Joy’s vocals paired with a cinematic and dramatic sound.” – Eat North
Incredibly astounding to believe that “Blink” was welcomed with open arms to American Songwriter, and included in their Daily Discovery column. I will be forever grateful for all who believed in this song and helped it into being.
This is the unreleased demo video for ‘Blink’. Guitar and vocals were recorded in a dorm room circa 2015, and producer Allister Bradley took those tracks away and worked his magic on them.
Fast forward to 2018 – I’d never made a music video before, and thought it might be fun to give it a go with the demo recording, and videographer Luke Camozzi. We shot two different versions in a friend’s Heritage home in downtown Uxbridge, and this version was done in one seamless take at the end of a long shoot day! If you haven’t seen the original demo video you can check it out here.
The official release of ‘Blink’ is coming 04.29.21 on all streaming services along with a rad new music video. Can’t wait to share!
For a song with a central storyline around life changing in an instant, ‘Blink’ sure took a long time to be fully realized. I first put pen to paper after a period of writer’s block, and willed it into existence after giving myself permission to write a song that sucked. That song (about losing a dirty sock in the the dryer) cleared the cobwebs for what was to become ‘Blink’.
Once the first draft was in decent shape I brought it into a writing session with songwriter James Linderman, where we discovered the walking baseline that grounds the song. Next up… the demo.
Blink will be released on all streaming platforms April 29! Presave here: https://show.co/TVjBs4o
