Today, JUNO and SOCAN award-winning Marianas Trench front man Josh Ramsay released the stylish new video for his searing rock anthem ‘Lady Mine’. You can stream and download ‘Lady Mine’ here.
The striking track is the first single from Ramsay’s forthcoming debut solo album, ‘The Josh Ramsay Show’, and features Chad Kroeger of Nickelback.
The video is a celebration of musicianship, drawing attention to the track’s bold instrumentation, with blazing guitars, a full horn section and jaw-dropping vocals. Josh and Chad are rocking out in the center of a large studio space in such a way that it feels like they’re playing to each other, facing inwards in a circle-like formation that the camera covers from all angles.
The music video was shot at the RGA Studio in Burnaby, BC. It was directed by Emma Higgins (Tegan and Sara, Jessie Reyez, Mother Mother) and produced by Sebastien Galina of Vancouver-based production company Boldly.
“This song is so much fun. Making the video was even more fun. Just 2 hams, trying to make each other laugh. Once I heard both our vocals together, I thought we should’ve changed the title to, “the ballad of 2 chainsaws”, said Ramsay.
No stranger to bold collaborations, Ramsay has worked with marquee names throughout his multifaceted career, including writing and performing credits with Carly Rae Jepsen, Nickelback, and 5 Seconds of Summer to name a few. In true Ramsay style, fans can expect a music offering that is nothing less than spectacular with plenty of familiar faces featured on the new album. These include JUNO and CCMA Award winner Dallas Smith, D.J. Sharkpocalypse, Fefe Dobson, Fionn, Ria Mae, Sara Ramsay, JUNO Award winner Serena Ryder, Tyler Shaw and JUNO Award winner Chad Kroeger on Lady Mine.
As with every project he takes on, Ramsay wanted to push his personal limitations and challenge himself as a songwriter, singer, player, and producer with this new single. He played every instrument on the track (except horns), produced it, and co-mixed it with longtime friend, Dave “Rave” Ogilvie. That’s always been a defining characteristic of his output as with Marianas Trench, and in his role as producer and songwriter for artists like Carly Rae Jepsen, whose worldwide hit, ‘Call Me Maybe’ garnered Ramsay a Grammy nomination and a SOCAN Award for “Most Performed Song” in SOCAN history. Ramsay has toured with Marianas Trench extensively in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. When not on the move, the multi-instrumentalist runs his own recording studio, The Umbrella Factory, in Vancouver, BC.
