Heart of Gold (Cover) is one in a three-pack of videos shot in Adrian Sutherland’s home community. In October 2018, a production crew of three traveled to Attawapiskat in remote Northern Ontario with 14 cases of gear and one ambitious plan: making two music videos in five days. Getting the job done in only four, they made the last-minute decision to use the remaining time to shoot one more, and that’s how the Heart of Gold (Cover) video came to be – spontaneously, magically, and with a little help from some little friends. The video has been viewed more than 190,000 times on YouTube since its release in January 2019.
