Project Blackbird is a collective of UK-based musicians, including multi-instrumentalist Jon Read, a former trumpet player for The Specials who has also toured with The Dandy Warhols.
Their debut album Endurance is a compelling soundscape that defies the constraints of genre or convention. Instrumentals, spoken word, and lyrical eloquence conspire to create a cinematic listening experience – hypnotic songcraft that cuts to the core of contemporary humanity and “connection”.
As one fan suggests, “Imagine a party at Ronnie Scott’s where Sade, Björk, Jeff Beck, and David Byrne meet Portishead and then go for a late night curry to exchange ideas…sublime“.

Behind the scenes
We shot this music video within two days. As they were about 7 band members playing 7 different instruments we had to segregate two hours per singer.As easy as the filming was (A static shot on a green screen in various angles). The hardest part really was the VFX. Now the whole music video needed to be in a ghostly(spacey) environment which is what I'm in love with.
This music video took me in a total of 100 hours to fully edit
