Singer-songwriter Imogen Clark today unveils ‘The Making Of Me’, the title track from her forthcoming EP, due for release on August 21 (Potts Entertainment/MGM). The Making Of Me EP.
New single ‘The Making Of Me’ was written during a particularly dark time in Imogen’s life. “It’s about finding the strength to push through”, she says.
“I had no way of knowing when we recorded the song, that I’d be releasing it in the middle of a pandemic right as people around the world are facing their darkest hours. If you’re struggling right now, I hope this song speaks to you and helps give you the strength to keep going.”
Shot at Sydney’s Low 302 Bar in March, days before COVID-19 shut down all live music in Australia, the stirring music video for ‘The Making Of Me’ showcases Imogen’s vulnerable performance; the artist sits alone at a piano, pouring her heart out, to an empty venue.
“We filmed this video on the eve of Sydney’s lockdown, in a venue where I’d just played one of my favourite shows ever. It was eerie shooting in an empty room that had just a week earlier been packed with people enjoying live music.
“I wanted to help support all the great venues that have supported me over the years, so I’ve curated some resources for venues I’ve loved playing, or had planned to play before COVID; ways you can help support them so they can hang on until things return to normal”.
