Video #12 of 1000 – Chelsea Johnson – Cause You Have To. Recorded in her backyard in East Vancouver on a Sunday afternoon in March in HD (1080p).
We got together on a Sunny Sunday afternoon to make a one-shot video and no idea how/where we were going to do it. While Chelsea got her guitar I found the weathered wooden wall of a shed in the backyard beautiful and there was a weather worn painting on it and some baby blue metal table and chairs. So, we just shot it right there, in her backyard.
After she sang this song, Chelsea said “I don’t even know what that was exactly. I think it was a bit of 2 or 3 different songs.” So, this heart-wrenching bluesy number just came out of her for my camera and is forever preserved on EveryDayMusic!
