Songstress Gabby Huber also known as Maples has released a video for her debut single ‘Stars’, co-written with Julian Hamilton (The Presets), co-produced by Dave Symes (Sarah Blasko, Boy & Bear), and mixed by Timothy Whitten (Powderfinger, Lanie Lane, Youth Group), enter into the surreal Maples world via her video filmed in some stunning locations across Victoria.
“Stars was filmed in locations in and around Mount Victoria. The first shot for the entire film clip was at sunrise the morning after epic snowfall… I was freezing to say the least, the torment was palpable. The house where we filmed was built by my late great Uncle Fred. He lived there with my Aunt Honey and the bedroom where we filmed was the very room he passed on. It was very special to be back in the house I had spent so many weekends as an infant. The driveway at the property was also lined with Maple trees, a memory I am very fond of. The house was also meant to represent suppression, being confined and kept within walls, unable to break free. The song is after all about suppression, and the urge to break free and soar.
Reginald was the beautiful Palomino that featured in the clip also, he was to represent strength. The bonfire was to represent re-birth. It’s simply about change. We filmed with Reginald up in Peats Ridge. He was such a stunning creature.
Cal Green, the stunning cinematographer shot and directed the clip. It was his first time directing, and he was incredible to work with. For an indie artist to work with someone of his calibre was truly an honour. We met, funnily enough, across the bar at Earls Juke Joint!”
