One advantage to being a sensitive singer-songwriter in Utah: When you make a music video, you can throw a bed in the middle of the Utah desert and — BAM! — instant visual metaphor.
That’s what Park City-based singer-songwriter Robyn Cage has done with her new single, "Burning Now," released today.
Cage is a Salt Lake City native and actress who was living in New York when started songwriting in 2009, recording an EP, "Raining Sideways" (under her other stage name, Robyn Kemp).
Cage recorded the single, "Burning Now," with producer Derryl Neudorf, who has worked with such artists as Neko Case and Sarah MacLachlan. In May, she went to Los Angeles to record more songs with producer Dan Burns, for an EP, "Tales of a Thief," due out in September.
The video was shot a couple of weeks ago in the Utah desert, near the Bonneville Salt Flats. Directed by Bryce Johnson, the video showcases Cage as a woman contemplating the departure of her boyfriend (played by Paul D. Mann) — with their bed, surrounded by empty desert, as the central theme.
