Singer films video in Hope out of accident

Folk-pop singer-songwriter Eryn Robertson filmed her latest music video All The While in Hope.



Folk-pop singer-songwriter Eryn Robertson filmed her latest music video All The While in Hope after bad October weather on the Coquihalla Highway forced her to cancel her trip to Merritt.

The Vancouver artist wanted to go to Merritt for the desert scenes there, but found equally captivating scenes in Hope.

“To be completely honest, we kind of stumbled upon Hope,” said Robertson. “We stopped there and we went into a little diner over there and we had lunch and we drove around the town.”

They found some dirt roads, came across an old Husky gas station and found the “vibe” they wanted. To Robertson, Hope had a vintage feel, a sense of the open road and a mountain backdrop that reflected the British Columbian landscape.

“It’s really unique, it’s a really special small B.C. town, I’m really glad we stumbled upon it,” said Robertson. “Hope has great spots for filming, I find.”

All The While described Robertson searching for a sense of freedom. She meets a drifter on an empty two-lane highway. The drifter is played by Nik Dean, owner of Vancouver motorcycle shop Lords of Gastown.

Dean arrives on a motorcycle and Robertson takes her on a trip, giving her a sense of freedom.

“It captures this moment in time that we share and it doesn’t last forever but it’s really beautiful, and it’s so beautiful that you want it to last forever,” said Robertson.

Dean, Robertson and videographer Andi Wardrop spent six hours to film the three-minute video in Hope.

Robertson is originally from Gibsons and her video can be viewed on her channel on YouTube.
