Heart Of Oak is the first single from Richard Hawley’s new album Hollow Meadows.
Built around an instantaneous, driving riff, Heart Of Oak is one of the album’s unbridled rock’n’roll moments, as well as a heartfelt tribute to all the people who’ve influenced and nurtured Hawley throughout his life.
The video was filmed in Hope Valley near Sheffield. It’s inspired by Murad Ossman who did a series of photos on Instagram of his girlfriend holding his hand and leading him around the world showing him the sites. That idea was coupled with the Heart of Oak mentoring theme – it’s people in Richard Hawley’s life showing him beautiful things on his travels until he gets to Sheffield and he shows us Sheffield.
