The McDades – Music videos

Lindisfarne Productions is proud to have produced and filmed 3 dynamic new music videos for Juno-nominated artists, The McDades.

The McDades are an beloved Edmonton-based folk band. The band centres around siblings Shannon Johnson, Solon McDade, and Jeremiah McDade. Our team created 3 separate music videos for their Juno-nominated album, The Empress. The videos featured the songs: Sundown, The Lonely Road, and Willie Reilly.

To maintain an organic feel, the videos were all shot in the recording studio. Multiple cameras and a variety of cinematic techniques were used, creating a unique look for each video. In addition, we also kept our crew small: 1 director, 3 shooters, 1 makeup artist, and a production coordinator to preserve the intimate feel of the videos. Being in the room with such accomplished artists was electric. Finally, our post-production team used minimal edits to allow each song to shine without distraction.

The McDades’ album featuring these songs, The Empress, was nominated for best Traditional Roots Album of the Year at the 2023 Juno Awards. They also won Vocal Group of the Year at the 2023 Canadian Folk Music Awards.

Our team had a blast working with the McDades and having the opportunity to create music videos for a renowned Edmonton music group. We always love having the opportunity to work with other creatives to help bring their vision to light.
