The latest HIP Picks – Weekly Client Roundup is here; take a look at the videos, and learn more about the clips by reading below.
The Dead Daisies are a galactic collection of storied musicians. Drummer Brian Tichy, bassist Michael Devin, and guitarist Doug Aldrich are former members of WHITESNAKE, so rocking out to a WHITESNAKE song in the “Slide It In” video felt natural. “Slide It In” was directed by David Pear, and filmed at the band’s rehearsal space, showing the group rocking out in front of bright lights and colorful visuals just like they will on their upcoming tour!
Newark, NJ native Amanda Holley is a destiny-driven R&B diva who’s ready to step into the limelight. “RIDE OR DIE”, from the upcoming The HolleyGraphic EP, has over 100,000 streams. Amanda co-wrote the song with XXL Freshman Class Producer OhKayLaws (Korey Laws), renowned Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter/musician Chico Bennett (Lady Gaga, Madonna, Prince, Destiny’s Child, Usher), the prolific Avery K. Wilson, and emerging songwriter Alisha Harris. The video was shot by cinematographer and co-director Mikey Piliero, in her newly adopted home of Los Angeles.
