Tommy Green Jr. films new music video around world
Singer uses cruise ship gig to film in Australia, Mexico, Caribbean
A New Brunswick singer has used his long-distance travel connections to make a unique music video.
Tommy Green Jr., originally from Centreville, filmed the video for his new song "Sand In My Sheets" during his job as a performer on cruise ships.
"I've been filming it for over a year, and so you can imagine I'm pretty excited to put the finishing touches on it and release it into the world," said Green.
Green filmed the music video at various ports around the world. He first started when he came upon a beach in Sydney, Australia and it kept going from there.
This isn't the first time Green has made a unique music video. Last year one for his song "It's My Turn Now."
The video was shot in Centreville and featured students from the Centreville Community School. Green had originally gone to the school to perform for the students, but he had an ulterior motive as well.
"I was actually incognito trying to cast for this video," said Green.
Green said there's nowhere he'd rather be in the summer than in Atlantic Canada, but it doesn't take much to convince him to hit the high seas on the winter.
"There's just no way I can afford to do that without the cruise ship gig," said Green.
Green will release the music video for "Sand In My Sheets" on August 26. He is also performing Saturday, Aug. 13 at Wilser's Room in Fredericton with Andy Brown. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m.
