New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Briana Renea, the country music up-and-comer from the "Pacific Wonderland," will introduce her new music video "Chasin' Trouble" to complement her debut single ("Chasin' Trouble"- ON COUNTRY RADIO NOW). The clip (filmed and produced by Immense Imagery) will premiere on Musiclikealady.com, Wednesday, November 14, 2018 at 11:00 AM CDT and available via all digital platforms on Friday, November 23, 2018; AristoMedia will head up the video promotion campaign.
Embracing the charming richness of a small Oregan town, the "Chasin' Trouble" music video was filmed throughout The Dalles, OR with a majority of the scenes shot within the National
Neon Sign Museum (NNSM). The 20,000 sq.ft museum that boasts the history, craftsmanship and evolution of America's signage and the advertising industry served as the ideal location for the playful, "naughty or nice" storyline. A souped-up, candy red Camaro is featured as a bonus prop while 50s wardrobe selections and accessories (complete with roller skates) were scooped as a "find" from local thrift shops.
"The camero that we had planned to use fell through at the last minute. We were frantically looking for a replacement when we passed this beautiful, cherry red Camaro parked on the street; I just knew it had to be in the video. We flipped a U-turn. I rolled down the window and asked a complete stranger if he would be open to letting us use his car in a music video and much to my surprise, he said 'yes'," Briana Renea said. "The owner drove two hours to allow us the use of his car; I am blessed to have enjoyed his gift of kindness. ... as well as numerous others; we could not have done this without your help."
The Oregonian native's saucy vocals and bold lyrics paint the portrait of a spunky gal who should be ID'd with a "WARNING" label. The tongue-in-cheek flick spotlights a tug-of-war between the red-headed troublemaker and the impressionable man's, not-at-all-happy, mother. Ultimately, the rebellious love interest breaks away from his momma to dance with the "troublemaker."
A Briana Renea original tune, co-written alongside Steve Mitchell (Grin Like A Dog Songs Publishing) and Will Hopkins ("She's Killing Me"/Craig Wayne Boyd), and produced by Jason Wyatt (Watershed Studios, Nashville) was released in October via all digital retail outlets. https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/chasin-trouble-single/1435188921
Briana Renea (pronounced Bree-AH-nuh Ruh-Ney) comes by her country roots naturally. The 24-year-old reigns from Canby, Oregon in the heart of the Pacific Northwest. The sophisticated, yet fiery, redhead has collaborated with Nashville writers and skilled songcrafters (Steve Mitchell Dee Briggs, Mason
Douglas, Jason Wyatt, Cort Carpenter, Jason Wyatt and Tony George) to produce three studio recordings in four short years. She recorded and released the independent project Red Lips, White Lies
(May 2015) under her own imprint. A young lady who raised cattle, horses and goats on the family farm, Briana writes what she knows. "Dirt Side," the most literal, depicts her childhood and teenage years growing up on a farm sporting blue jeans and cowboy boots with her hands and feet planted in the dirt; the track earned a Top 12 Best of NSAI Spring
Training Award. The idea behind "Red Lips, White Lies" spawned from a road trip with her fraternal twin brother who shared stories about the "crazy ladies" he's dated. Most recently, the single titled "Widow Maker," a tune about bull riding, was featured in the Northwest Pro Rodeo Association finals advertising. Briana released her new single, "Chasin' Trouble," to country radio in September
With 80s rock (Eagles/Genesis/Phil Collins/Fleetwood Mac) and 90s country music (Reba, Dixie Chicks, LeeAnn Rimes/Jo Dee Messina) echoing through the stalls and hall of the barn, Briana inherently blends the two genres in her own musical compositions and live performances. Since launching her touring career (2013), Briana has become a must-see, fan favorite at fairs, festivals and venues throughout the Northwest where she's shared the stage with notable country recording artists such as Joe Nichols, Old Dominion, Canaan Smith, Love and Theft, Diamond Rio
and Sammy Kershaw. She was recently recognized by the International Music
and Entertainment Association (IMEA) with its "Country Female Artist Of The Year" award (2018). When not standing behind a microphone, she rides before the judges; the competitive equestrian shows horses professionally in the Western States Stock Horse Association circuit.
