The song now receives fresh boost as JC Stewart shares its official video, which cuts between two connected narrative strands. In the first, JC and a girl (played by Clea Martin) are enjoying the carefree rush and excitement of blooming young love. But in the other, he’s home alone following their split, reflecting on what might’ve been. Bittersweet, sorrowful yet also optimistic for what’s to come, Sophie King’s video gets to the heart of why the singer-songwriter is connecting with a young audience.
The release of the video continues JC’s rise. WATCH HERE. With rapidly ascending streaming stats, the young singer-songwriter has been backed by global artists Lewis Capaldi and Niall Horan, and has gained Radio 1 airplay from Scott Mills and Mollie King. He was also recently highlighted as Apple Music’s New Artist of the Week.
The fourth generation of JC Stewarts in the family tree, the young musician was destined to continue the family grocery business of the same name in Northern Ireland, but instead deviated on the road toward pop stardom. Later, a chance encounter with Lewis Capaldi at an A-lister party in Hollywood took his music career to the next level. Feeling add odds with their surroundings, the pair decided to duck out for a beer in a local bar. That swift pint turned into an impromptu middle-of-the-night writing session in which ‘Hollywood’, from Capaldi’s #1 debut album, was written.
Having previously played shows with Lewis Capaldi, Lauv, Anne–Marie, Maisie Peters and Freya Ridings, JC’s profile in the live arena is also rapidly gathering momentum. He recently played a MTV Push event alongside Yungblud, Raye and Lily Moore, and previewed his European headline date in May by embarking upon The Secret Tour Before The Real Tour.
