Toronto, ON-based singer-songwriter and producer, Chris Grey has released his new single, “I should be happy”.
The song touches upon themes of social anxiety & hidden depression, highlighting how many of us silently feel.
The music video for “I should be happy” proves to be the ultimate compliment to the track. The one-shot video/ one camera clip was produced and directed by Grey, and captures the singer in a state of emptiness, standing in stark contrast to a myriad of milestones happily unfolding around him amongst his friends, as the song progresses.
“I’ve been involved in some form of music for as long as I can remember”, says Grey, reflecting on a childhood that found him immersed in instruments, albums, and ideas.
“My sound really stems from those two worlds,” he says, referencing the reggae, R&B, and disco records his father, a famous DJ in his homeland would constantly spin, along with the Canadian pop and rock staples favoured by his mom.
