Feast your eyes on Laura Jane's latest music video for "Weep Willow," now available to watch on YouTube.



Welcome to BuzzMusic, Laura Jane. What an enchanting and engaging visual experience you've offered with your latest music video for "Weep Willow." What inspired the calming and tranquil ambiance for the music video?


The video for WEEP WILLOW features three characters, one is me, the other is a warrior princess and the other is the goddess/action hero figure. These were the people I had to become to survive the darkest moments of the initial lockdown of 2020. I didn't feel like myself most of 2020 and I had to dig deep to find the strength to overcome the fear and anxiety I was feeling. I also wanted to incorporate the color purple in the video. The color purple is the color of mourning, nobility, and royalty.


What inspired the song itself, "Weep Willow?” How is the song's concept reflected in the music video?


The song is a lament of sorts, built around poetry. Weep Willow is a woman crying finding the strength to get back up. As an artist in the initial lockdown of 2020 most of us had our calendars completely go away, it was scary for us as artists and musicians, this song came from that moment and feeling of vulnerability.


Did you work with any directors or videographers when creating the music video for "Weep Willow?” What was the experience like working with your team on set?


I worked with Mike Quain of Quain Photography for the music video. Normally I will talk about my concepts to the director and the things I see in it. I also detail moments in the song sonically that I think a visual needs to happen on as well as underlining certain lyrics in the song that should have a visual that coincides with the thought. Mike Quain is amazing and dedicated to artists and loves creating. I also worked with my hair and makeup artist LaNiece McKay - she was so important in bringing these “characters’ to life…..


How does the song "Weep Willow" get us ready for your forthcoming EP, 'Weep Willow?’ What should we expect from the project?


The EP reflects a moment in history that I think was emotionally and spiritually very hard for most of us, the EP is about surviving this moment. It’s melancholy, moody and ambient, and thought-provoking. It’s empty and bare in production again hopefully revealing the mood of 2020.
