Chloe Flower has unveiled the music video for “Carol Of The Bells,” which was co-written and co-produced alongside GRAMMY Award-winning icon Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. Once again, Flower teams up with Asian-American female director Deb Tam who shot the music video on film. “Carol of the Bells” delivers a cinematic visual that evokes old Hollywood glamour as it switches from black-and-white to color vignettes. Taking place in the iconic Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn with Great Gatsby glee and high-fashion elegance, Flower performs with palpable passion at a Steinway & Sons piano as a choir carries the heavenly chorus and ballroom dancers joyfully launch stunning routines.
“My inspiration for ‘Carol of the Bells’ was to bring the joy of music and dance to everyone this holiday season,” says Flower. “With this video, I set out to create a dream world where everyone can escape this difficult time and celebrate the spirit of Christmas, no matter where you are. The director’s exquisite old Hollywood vision came to life by intersecting fashion, choreography and piano, bringing glamour to instrumental music.”
Styled by Colin LoCasscio, Flower’s wardrobe proves almost as impressive as her playing as she’s spotted in Liberace’s ornate white coat, graciously on loan from The Liberace Foundation, The Blonds’ shimmering gold mini, Alessandra Rich and Stina Randestad couture, as well as vintage Gucci. The pianist also worked with James Alonzo for choreography and Jackson Hallberg on art direction. Earlier this year, Flower released her original single “Flower Through Concrete.”
The instrumental ballade, “Flower Through Concrete” follows Flower’s 2019 release of “No Limit,” her solo piano cover of the viral hit “Old Town Road” as well as her chart-topping single debut, “Get What U Get.” Flower’s musical style is ever-growing and has cultivated her into a multi-genre artist. “I’m so inspired by pop and classical music that when I create songs, I naturally incorporate classical ideas within a pop music structure,” notes Flower. With an album set for the first half of 2021, Flower plans to continue her hybrid blend of classical and pop music-making a genre all her own, “Popsical.”
