Filmed in a Victorian house in Kenilworth the new video to accompany the single ‘Love is Strong’ by local artist Mister Keith will be released next week.
Officially it’s the first single from the album Record of Wrongs released last year, which has been receiving excellent reviews and earned Mister Keith ‘Artist of the Month’ on BBC Introducing and play on BBC Radio 1. The song features both Warwick University Brass and Eastbourne Salvation Army Band who both recorded parts for the track.
The video, shot in a local house by Manchester filmmaker Mark Tuson of Northern Spark Films also features Kenilworth girl Sarah Murphy who acted as the ‘ghost’ in the film’s enigmatic storyline of love and loss.
“It’s an emotionally claustrophobic song and setting this in a domestic situation of a house mirrors the lyrics. We filmed it in an afternoon and Sarah was excellent at being directed in her first film.”
On the same day of its release, Mister Keith plays with acclaimed songwriter Boo Hewerdine from 90’s band ‘The Bible’ at Coventry’s Big Comfy Books (Thursday 10th March). The event is almost sold out and promises an intimate insight in to both songwriter’s catalogues with a very small audience. The alias of songwriter Keith Ayling,
Mister Keith is a new project of what has been a thirty year career in songwriting crossing four decades of musical styles, most notably with Britpop band Kato.
The vintage feel continues when Mister Keith’s orchestra of six musicians visits the Edwardian Village Hall of Quatt in Shropshire two days later (March 12th) for a Parlour Concert, sponsored by Broker’s gin.
“I approached Quatt because I felt the heritage of the hall and the village perfectly matched what Mister Keith shows are all about. They agreed! My Parlour Concerts are immersive events, with participation even down to tea tasting and gin tasting in the interval.”
