Emerging Toronto-based singer-songwriter Sam Drysdale is back with his new video for “Dream About a Girl”, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Dressed in an all-black velvet suit and vintage sunglasses, the “Dream About a Girl” music video chronicles Drysdale as he watches his own dream about the girl can’t seem to forget even after waking up.
The music video, projected through Super 8mm film, was shot at the Paradise Theater in Toronto, ON, and directed by Aaron Alter and Helder Matias, with additional creative direction from Sunflower Creative. The location and choice to shoot on film are a clear aesthetic nod to an earlier time, and also serves as an impactful introduction to a new side of Drysdale’s artist-aesthetic.
Born in Kitchener-Waterloo, ON, and raised in Guelph, ON, Drysdale was influenced by his musical family from a young age who exposed him to all kinds of artists from Bruce Springsteen to Pink Floyd. He moved to Los Angeles at 17 to attend the Musicians Institute, and later moved to Nashville at the age 21, where he collaborated with established producer-songwriters Davor Jordanovski and Paul Brown on a six track EP entitled The Fight.
Drysdale relocated to Toronto, ON, where he continued to release more music, including his second EP, Vicelove, produced by Thomas “Tawgs” Salter (Lights, Walk Off the Earth, Scott Helman).
Drysdale is currently working hard in the studio and putting the finishing touches on his next EP, which is set to be released early next year.
