A scene from Tiffany Desrosiers’ video for her latest single, Fearless, finds the Langley artist in the sundappled woods of Stanley Park. The video can be viewed on Youtube and the song can be purchased from iTunes.

It’s all about living Fearlessly

Langley singer Tiffany Desrosiers’ latest music video is a fantasy come to life



For a woman who has been relentlessly chasing her dream of becoming an internationally known singer-songwriter, it may just be the perfect metaphor.

Langley’s Tiffany Desrosiers’ latest single — Fearless — released last month with a professionally shot and edited music video, is all about pushing boundaries and facing down the fears that prevent people from reaching their full potential.

The music video takes audiences on a journey with three characters — Vikings —  who are faced with the task of overcoming darkness in their world and conjuring light and beauty.

Shot over two days last summer in Stanley Park and at Squamish, the video opens on Desrosiers, in a long, flowing white gown, walking through a sun-dappled forest while, elsewhere, a trio of helmeted men, clothed in furs and with painted faces, paddle ashore and then set off running through the woods. However, the forest that the men inhabit is a dark and foreboding place — in stark contrast to Desrosier’s bright and welcoming surroundings.

As the Vikings light a fire against the darkness, the two scenes meld into one.

The song infuses modern pop, electronic dance music and dubstep production elements, with a classical flair and influence, and carries this unique fusion over into the music video.

Developing a concept for the video was a collaborative effort, said the artist over the phone during a break from her day job with the Surrey school district.

“I came up with a story with certain images that I wanted. I envisioned me arriving in a boat on the shore of some kind of island, with elements of a love story, running through the forest.”

But the guys at Brass Tacks Films weren’t completely sold.

“They said, ‘love stories are so overdone,” said Desrosiers.

“I wanted an old-fashioned, 18th century flair. They were so into Game of Thrones and the whole fantasy genre.”

“They took my concept and made it a lot more interesting.

“Ideally, your hope is for the video to enhance the song and complement what the song means,” she said.

And she’s satisfied that this is the case with Fearless.

Of course, the whole point of releasing a single and going to all the effort and expense of making a video is to get the song played.

It is getting good traction on the radio in the United States, said Desrosiers, noting the song has reached number 162 on the top 200 chart in the U.S.

But with TV music channels being as much about reality programming now as they are about playing music videos, getting an independent video to air is challenging to say the least.

Luckily, the Internet has a global reach — as long as word about the video gets around.

Fearless, released last month on Youtube is the first single of a pop/dance trilogy with producer Troy Samson, which the artist describes as an uplifting, poppy infusion of Sia Furler and Celine Dion.

The second single is due to be released soon.

Desrosiers “Fearless” music video can be viewed on Youtube. The song is available for purchase on iTunes.
