The first official Music Video Monday is our second offering from Stephen Chopek

"Staying" from the EP On Their Own is a about exploring a new city. Chopek relocated to Memphis from New Jersey last year.  "A few places in Midtown caught my eye that I thought would work well for a music video. My goal was to capture moments as they presented themselves in order to express the spontaneity of exploration," he says. "I collected a lot of footage without knowing which song I would would be using it for. When I decided that 'Staying' was going to be the single, everything fell into place. The video serves as both a visual accompaniment to music, and a love letter to my new home."

Prominently featured in the video is Alex Warble's giant mural on the west wall of the Hi-Tone's former location on Poplar Avenue. Can we have that declared a landmark?


This is Chopek's second Music Video Monday. How did he get featured twice? He emailed cmccoy@memphisflyer.com!
