Rachel Griffin is an award winning songwriter who has received praise from luminaries such as Gavin DeGraw and Bruce Hornsby. She is also a music teacher and has been both a big sister through Big Brother Big Sister and a dedicated hospice volunteer through Beacon Hospice. And, according to her Twitter — and the shopping list in her “Over The Moon for You” video — Rachel loves her coffee! Even though this radiant, delightfully-caffeinated, Maine-native who now resides in New York City has been writing and recording for a number of years and already has several projects available on iTunes and over 90 videos on YouTube, she calls the aforementioned “Over The Moon for You” her “first real music video.”
Perhaps that is because “Over The Moon for You” isn’t Rachel’s typical live performance video of just her at a keyboard showing off her remarkable range and skills, it’s a full-fledged story, produced by LightHouse Films and directed by Nick Everhart. The action takes place in a cardboard kitchen painted in colors that are almost as vivid as the artist’s own infectiously upbeat personality. Throughout her performance, she exhibits an affable charm that rivals the natural wholesome appeal of a Rachel Bilson or a Laura Bell Bundy. Griffin twirls about her imaginative cookery in heels, polka dots, a bright pink apron, and bright pink lipstick while delivering a spirited vocal performance.
The song, itself, is an uplifting, catchy tune that just explodes with a zesty joy! Griffin has hit her stride and found gold with this lovingly crafted 3-minute bliss-muffin. She spreads her sparkles with a wink and a smile and fills the air with more magic than Mary Poppins and Harry Potter combined. If this is what we can expect from Rachel’s future “real” videos, please keep them coming!
