Kristyna Myles filming music video in Jersey
Singer Kristyna Myles is filmed the video for the first single to be released from her debut album in Jersey, using beaches and cobbled streets as a backdrop.
The video is for single, I’m not going back, the first for the singer since signing with Decca Records.
It is one of the first pop music videos to be filmed in the island by an artist signed to a major label.
Miss Myles said: “Jersey is such a beautiful place and we wanted to fit that into the video, the ocean, beaches and castles. It fits with the story line of the single as well.”
She signed a £2m five-album deal with the label after winning BBC Radio 5 Live’s Busk Idol competition. She had been busking on the streets of Manchester for seven years.
“We are filming the video in loads of different locations in Jersey. We were on a cobbled street, by the lighthouse, we captured a beautiful part of Jersey.
“We have a VW camper van so we put that on the beach and these horses galloped by. It wasn’t planned but we asked them to do it again,” said Miss Myles.
The video is being filmed by Jersey based production company, Red Rhino, who approached the singer after seeing her perform in the UK.
The single is released on 18 June and Miss Myles says it is about not going back to a part of your life.
She said: “For me it was about not going back to a place where i didn’t believe I couldn’t fulfil my dreams in music. We want to create something people can relate to in the video.”
The first part of the video was filmed on a cobbled street with a dark filter on the camera.
Miss Myles said they then moved on to some of the island’s more beautiful spots to “show that contrast that you are not going back to that place in your life.”
