WAM Member Spotlight: Jon Clements runner-up in Glen Hansard’s “Wreckless Heart” Video Search

4 May


This is a WAM Member Spotlight – celebrating achievements of WAM’s incredible members.


This weeks WAM Member Spotlight features Jon Clements who has been announced as a runner-up in Academy and Grammy award winning Irish singer-songwriter Glen Hansard’s (Once, The Commitments) “Wreckless Heart” Music Video Search. This search gave entrants the chance to create an official music video for the track, gain worldwide exposure for their work and receive $2,000 USD cash.

“I’m slightly overwhelmed and shocked but so utterly honoured to have my name absolutely anywhere near [Glen’s], for any reason, let alone to have this video now associated with such an incredible piece of songwriting such as this. Jaw scraping on ground.” – Jon Clements

Shot in a Janurary afternoon at the Conspicuous Cliff Beach in Walpole, WA, the video features Perth’s R&B/Soul artist Claudio fighting and karate-chopping the Southern Ocean for “what seemed like hours”, and was made with the help of Jon’s incredible brother-in-arms Aaron Malone, who colour edited the video.
