Vancouver, BC-based actress, singer-songwriter, Frankie Sharp (aka Natalie Franciska Sharp) has been hard at work on her music career since her acting career was temporarily sidelined last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Stuck inside and living with an upright piano in her studio apartment, she started writing music, focusing her energy on an entirely different creative endeavour. The result is her first single, “The Wait Is Over”, which was originally written about a potential relationship, exploring that nerve-wracking waiting game you play before you decide to “go for it” and admit your feelings to that person.
Filmed at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver, the song’s electric 80s inspired video is a collaboration with her director brother Alexander Sharp.
“For the video, my brother and I loved the concept of ‘going down the rabbit hole,’” says Frankie Sharp. “In the video, you see me drawn to this mysterious venue where I have this spontaneous performance experience, which ends up showing me what I’ve been longing for – to be a singer and find self expression. It is totally a parallel to my life, that I am finally tackling my music dream.”
