Jeremy Redmore - One Day Alone

Share this

What is your single about?

It’s about walking into a room, falling in love at first sight with someone and then being sure, rightly or wrongly, that if you can just get them alone, they’ll feel the same way.

Where did you record this single, and who helped you out?

I recorded this song at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studio in Auckland with acclaimed producer Wayne Bell (Bic Runga, Gin Wigmore, The Bads). It features Wayne himself on drums, Marcus Lawson on bass and BVs and who I think is NZ’s best guitarist, Brett Adams.

Have you got a video out, if so what is the theme/story behind the video?

The video was created by seven different directors spanning the world from New Zealand to Brazil, to the USA, England and Canada. Each director was given a keyword to begin and end their 29-seconds of film in which they otherwise had complete creative control – the keywords acted as thematic glue. No director was aware of any other's creations and the song itself was only supplied as an instrumental version so as to avoid any direct narrative accounts.

Who’s in your band?

The band that played on this song’s recording consisted of Wayne Bell, Marcus Lawson, Brett Adams and myself.

Have you got any tours coming up?

Over the next few months I’ll be performing a lead role in Auckland Theatre Company’s Jesus Christ Superstar – just another crazy challenge I’ve given myself which should be an incredible experience.

Have you got an album coming out soon?

My debut solo album came out just over a month ago – it’s called Clouds Are Alive and is now available worldwide.
