Jordan Ramirez braves Winter Storm Stella for one-take music video in deserted Wilkes-Barre
Cooped up inside because of the storm? Same. Instead of starting the next episode on Netflix, watch the latest music video from Northeastern Pennsylvania-based Going Up? Records.
With the typically busy Market Street Bridge as an empty backdrop, Wilkes-Barre musician Jordan Ramirez, accompanied by Kamri Jacobs behind the camera, braved Winter Storm Stella to capture this single-shot video of “Blood Red,” the first single off Ramirez’s upcoming solo album.
The blizzard brought record-setting snowfall to the area yesterday that has continued into today, which left the bridge and the rest of the city largely barren under a blanket of white. Playing off the song title, the only color in the black-and-white video is red, including a little splash across his New York Mets hat.
Ramirez’s soul rock band Half Dollar, who released their self-titled debut album late last year, will be opening for Badfish: A Tribute to Sublime at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg on Friday, April 21. Tickets can be purchased directly through the band fee-free via Facebook.
Jordan and Kamri will be also be joining Tunefly on our cross-country tour to record, explore, and make a documentary about local music scenes, which starts in just nine days. Learn more and follow our progress at tunefly.com.
Here’s a little feature we did on them before the tour:
