Video Release: Running Up That Hill – watch it here!

Since Kate Bush’s song has made its way back in the charts thanks to Netflix & Stranger Things, I couldn’t wait to cover this haunting song. Kate Bush has always been an inspiration to me as an artist not afraid to do things her own way. Growing up and hearing her voice on the radio, completely the opposite of the standard Pop voices, was so encouraging and confirmed to me that there is always room for voices that don’t conform to the norm.

The original version of the song is incredibly powerful and stark with a consistent drumbeat, giving it an almost animalistic and tribal feel. For my cover, I wanted to flip this on its head and strip it right back to just piano and voice. We chose a considerably higher key too to really enhance the ethereal approach we were aiming for.

The audio was beautifully produced by the wonderful team at PASES (Charlotte Tattam and Louis Forsyth) who captured the vision of the cover perfectly – they’re always an absolute dream to work with!

We shot the video in the gorgeous Chinnor Woods in Buckinghamshire, where the views were ethereal and breathtakingly vast. I worked with James at Fox Films Videography to create my vision for this cover and I’m delighted with how it turned out! 

I always love recording these videos in public places. More often than not, we get a little audience who stop and listen in on their dog walks! I think it’s such a fun thing for them to get to see the behind-the-scenes work as a complete surprise on their evening stroll!

The full cover is now up on my YouTube Channel – you can watch it here!
