Music video directed by Christopher Holmes/Holmeswood Features Entertainment lensed at Long Island City’s famed 5 Pointz
The uptempo kiss-off song “Run,” produced by Ayhan Sahin (Olivia Newton-John, Sandra Bernhard, Chaka Khan) was shot on location in Long Island City’s famed 5 Pointz, the world’s premiere outdoor “graffiti Mecca.” The site has become an immense canvas for sanctioned street artists from around the world, who have painted vivid works across the walls of a marquis 200,000-square-foot factory building and dozens of surrounding warehouses.
Making Jacob’s colorful videoclip all the more timely, 5 Pointz owner David Wolkoff announced that the beloved destination will be demolished at year-end 2013.
The artist was raised in Houston, singing in church and cherishing the gospel & blues of Ella Fitzgerald, along with the diverse talents of Judy Garland, Fiona Apple and Jeff Buckley. Eight years ago, she relocated to New York City, performing at Town Hall’s “Broadway's Rising Stars”; in “Emma the Red” at the BMI-Lehman Engel Musical Theatre; and in numerous musicals, including “Scarlet Takes A Tumble,” “Confessions of a Reality TV Star,” “Angels” and “Dear Mr. Rosan.”
Since the release of "Extraordinary Woman," Jacob has performed at numerous club spaces throughout Manhattan, as part of an ongoing promotional campaign for the album.
