Electra Barakos – Video for the Bishop Briggs Song – River

I had met Electra Barakos after she was a star on The Voice in Greece. She was performing with her band at a venue in Los Angeles and I was recording sessions for the web syndicated broadcast of Live From The Canyon. She became part of the 36 episode, 3 season show.

Some time had passed and I ran into Electra at a show on Sunset at the Viper Room. I proposed that if she had a song she wanted to work with, I’d be interested in shooting a music video with her. Solo, no band. It turned out that she had just finished recording “River,” a cover of the Bishop Brigs song that just hit the charts. She’d been working in the studio with platinum selling producer Stevie Bensusen and only the two of them had heard the final mix. I was number three.

This was the video. Single camera. Straight edit, shot outdoors locally. Bishop Briggs shared it on Twitter.
