Music Video Monday: John Kilzer


Get moony over Music Video Monday.
Last Saturday night, John Kilzer played a sold-out show at the new Crosstown Arts Theater to celebrate the release of his new album Scars. The show opened with the Memphis debut of the video for "Hello Heart".

“I wanted to do something abstract and dreamlike rather than a narrative piece,” says director Laura Jean Hocking, who has created three videos for Kilzer.

The star of the video is Shannon Walton, who can soon be seen in Theater Memphis' production of Little Women. Plans to have Walton dive into the pool for the video were canceled after a thermometer reading of 45 degrees F.

"I dig the video ," says Kilzer. "I think it is visually ambiguous in a way that allows one to fill in the creative spaces of both shadow and translucence. In a way it invites one to enter the song and dream out loud."
