PEOPLE OUT SHOPPING, working, at play – or getting married in Elgin today could well find themselves appearing in a rock music video.
Local band Christie Row – Elgin’s Danny Mortimer and Stuart Bain along with Graham Nesbitt from Forres – will be out and about in town filming a new video for their latest release “Losing Sight”.
The band will be looking for residents to get involved by signing along with the new song in front of camera – with film maker Halde Potinger saying: “We are starting on Elgin High Street at 9am and will spend the day filming people lip-syncing the words of the song.
“We are filming real people in Elgin – anyone who is out and about in the town, it’s market day and there is also a wedding taking place at the registrar’s office and they want to be in the video.
“When the video goes online we hope that people in it will get a bit of fame – if we get the weather then it’s going to be awesome.”
The band say that they wanted to use real people in the video to showcase the growing music scene in Moray.
Christie Row released their debut album ‘Headlights at Midnight’ earlier this year. The trio had been playing together in a number of local bands before finally taking the plunge with their own original material.
They describe their music as being “varied”, an eclectic mix of punk, acoustic, ballad rock and hard rock. ‘Headlights at Midnight’ was recorded by Joe Hardfield at Unity Recording Studios in Auldern and released in March this year – it can be downloaded via iTunes.
