Toronto singer-songwriter and producer Chris Grey releases the stunning visuals for genre-bending single ‘I Should Be Happy’
Detailing the internal struggle of feeling guilty for not feeling good enough, Chris Grey’s new release is distinctively relatable.
Accompanied with an unforgettable acoustic video recorded at Noble Street Studios, Toronto, Canada, the intimate version hears Chris vulnerable yet confident.
Speaking about the visuals, Chris Grey states, “I was at Noble Street Studios for a session and had an hour to spare because the artist I was working with was running late. I had my camera and tripod with me because I was going to film a part of their session.
I decided to seize the moment and film a stripped back version of I Should Be Happy. I didn’t have any lighting gear with me, but I’ve been to Noble enough to know their lighting system pretty well.
I turned on the spotlight, carried the Wurlitzer into place, set up the camera and ran back and forth filming short test videos until I got the angle right. Then I pressed record and ran to sit down to sing and play. I finished up just as the artist arrived for their session!”
The music video for the song further showcases Grey’s creative touch as an artist who not only prides himself on his dedication to his music, but also flexes his creative direction and photography skills.
Exploring heavy themes and embodying a moody and slinking production with a frantic-yet-euphonic sound, “I Should Be Happy” reveals the growth of Chris Grey as a singer, songwriter, and producer, while also solidifying himself as a clear talent to keep your eye on.
