Norfolk Day Video, Lovely Latitude

Very excited to share this! Here is the brand new beautiful video from my incredible student Breeze Redwine. Especially filmed for #NorfolkDay and showcasing the glorious countryside of the county, it has already had a wonderful response and also been selected as the official song for the occasion! The track is “Trust” – an original song written by myself and Breeze. Norfolk Day is Friday, 27th July 2018 and everyone involved in the video is from Norfolk:

Lovely to see some great press for the song and video. Thanks to EDP 24 for the feature.

Thank you Latitude Festival for another amazing weekend of outstanding music, performances, theatre, comedy and more. Also got to be involved in filming for the new Danny Boyle movie! More pics and video are at my Instagram: lisaredfordmusic

I’m proud to have written the title track with her and it’s just received it’s first airplay on BBC Introducing.
