Today, Victoria, BC based actor and singer-songwriter Ajay Friese, released the music video for his compelling new single “Your Eyes”. The track features Ajays unfailingly honest vocal delivery and hooks aplenty in a song about self-empowerment and loving yourself even during your hardest times.
Filmed at Catalogue Studios in Victoria, BC, and directed by Nikolas Facey and Zayden Phan, the “Your Eyes” music video is a candid behind the scenes look into the recording process of the song including producer-artist discussions and a multi-screen climax.
“Growing up aspiring to record and release music, I was always intrigued when artists included in-studio footage in their music videos. Seeing artists on the mic made the music feel so much more real and honest, and fuelled my dream of doing that myself one day. I hope that I can create that same inspiration for others with the “Your Eyes” video. And whether you’re a musician or not, I am hoping this video will allow you to experience the song in a way you might not otherwise,” said Friese.
Seattle-born, Ajay Friese is no stranger to being in the spotlight, as he is best known for his acting career, holding recurring roles in five Netflix Original Series, and making his debut in film as a lead in the critically acclaimed Riot Girls(2019) from the executive producer of Insidious. Some of Ajay’s Netflix roles include playing “Vijay Dhar” as a series regular in all 3 seasons of Lost in Space, playing “Eddie” in five episodes in season 4 of Riverdale, and playing the prince of Wendimoor, Farson Dengdamor in 5 episodes in Season 2 of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
Whether it’s acting, songwriting, competitive dance, or simply indulging his curiosity in a myriad of other ways, Ajay is determined to apply what he learns along the way to every creative task he takes on. That approach is abundantly clear on all three of his recent singles, “Jasper”, “Higher Stakes”, and “Your Eyes” Ajay’s music is a seamless blend of pop, alt. folk, and rock which will be evident in this single and his upcoming EP that will be released later this year.
