Central Coast NSW-based, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Jamie Lindsay celebrates the life of his best mate, Sirius in his new music video – and Countrytown has your first look in this exclusive premiere. Shot with award-winning video director Duncan Toombs of The Filmery, the clip portrays Lindsay’s search for something dear to him that he’s lost.
Lindsay says, “I wanted to do something special as a send-off to my dog. We used the single to push the album so even though it’s released, I felt that I didn’t give the song the send-off that it deserves. I’d also been wanting work with my long-time friend Duncan Toombs on a clip and it’s the first of many more to come.”
Written, recorded, produced and co-mixed by Lindsay, Sirius is a song about the loss of a loved one, inspired by the death of his German Shepherd, Sirius – named after the dog star.
He adds, “The whole song was about the day I had to put him down. The day the vet came around and put him to sleep, I was breaking in two, bawling and it was the most I’ve ever cried, but this song is also broadly about the loss of a loved one, which everyone can relate to.”
Lindsay released his first EP when he was 18 and went on to become a top 10 finalist at the prestigious Star Maker talent quest at the Tamworth County Music Festival in 1997-98. Throughout his twenty plus year career, he has been involved in various other projects in genres such as pop, blues, and hard rock, however, he went back to his country music roots with his latest self-produced release, titled Eleven. He is currently working on new music.
