Countrytown is proud to exclusively premiere the gorgeous new clip from Jay Santilli, 'Come Back Home'.
This week, Australian country singer Jay Santilli shares the gorgeous music video for her heartfelt new ballad, Come Back Home. Today, we’re proud to exclusively premiere the clip on Countrytown.
Come Back Home finds Santilli settled and happy with her family, with real-life footage from their lives edited throughout the video. No matter the challenges the family face, Santilli’s warm, varied vocal range is honest and believable in the ode to her family.
Set amongst beautiful spring leaves and lakes, Santilli and her family find a kind of utopia in each other. “It speaks to the profound connection between parents and their children, evoking emotions and reminding us of the enduring love that exists within a family,” Santilli said in a statement.
She added, exclusively with Countrytown, “This video was truly special to film. Initially, we planned to shoot at Warburton Forest [in Victoria], but it was closed. Instead, we found a lovely trail by the river and embraced the stunning scenery.
“I absolutely loved involving my family in this. I mean, they’re what the song is all about, so it was a no-brainer to have them be a big part of the video. Plus, we created beautiful memories that we’ll be able to watch over and over, forever.”
