Jamie McDell Shares New Music Video and Announces Tour!
On May 4, 2018, Jamie McDell independently-released Extraordinary Girl, a record celebrating her musical roots and the sounds of her upbringing. The project came together between Auckland, New Zealand and Nashville, Tennessee where she recorded the tracks with Australian award-winner producer Nash Chambers.
Today, she shares a video for a track off the album, 'Running Now' premiered by Australia's Joelene; The Country Music Blog. Jamie explains the concept behind the video, "This track came out of me like a break up song (but I've been with my partner for a successful four years) for me personally it was derived from some of the experiences I'd had leading up to separating with my label and the liberation of diving into the independent world. It made sense to me to mirror some form of breaking free in the video, also it turns out I have a new hobby; line dancing. I saw a bit of it when I was in Nashville so decided to take a few classes when I came home. I suppose it's not a very 'modern' style of dance amongst my generation but I like that it's about focus and coming full circle. I use solitude, an 80s Alfa Romeo and nature to find contentment in this video."
