The Private Ear Video Sessions

ABOUT

On December 20, a team of talented Winnipeggers will come together at Private Ear Recording Studios to shoot a series of live performance videos. The production is a collaboration between active members of Winnipeg's film and music industry. The three videos, two original songs by Rayannah and a cover, will be released as a collection in early 2017 in parallel with Rayannah's tour of Germany, Ontario and Quebec. 


OUR TEAM

JIM AGAPITO – DIRECTOR

Jim Agapito is a Filipino writer, producer, director from Winnipeg. He has worked in Canadian film and television for both broadcasters and independent productions for the past decade.

RAYANNAH – ARTIST

Born and raised in Winnipeg, Rayannah has taken her music across Canada, to California for the Culture Collide festival, and to Europe. Boxcar Lullabies, Rayannah's first recording as a solo artist, was released in May of 2015. The EP blends her melodies with the indelible sounds of delicate strings, distorted whispers, pulled-apart pianos, passing trains, and a choir of double basses. Live, Rayannah recreates these soundscapes by looping her voice, breath, synths and percussion. Her visceral lyrics in French and English ring above it all, pulling from her experiences both dark and sweet.

SHAWN DEALEY – AUDIO PRODUCER

Producer, engineer, mixer, and front of house engineer Shawn Dealey's home base is at Private Ear Recording, located in downtown Winnipeg. One of Winnipeg’s oldest studios, with a great history of amazing albums recorded there. Shawn owned and operated Prairie Recording Company, in Winnipeg from 2006-2012, working with artists such as The Weakerthans, Imaginary Cities, and Novillero. He maintains a solid base of local and international clients.
