Hak Baker is having a bit of a wobbly and Jon E Price has caught it on camera and turned it into a moody film.

Wobbles On Cobbles plays like a London lockdown lullaby of sorts, so Price has fittingly created a promo with dreamlike visuals and gentle camera movements to match, around a combination of the recording and Baker's live performance of the song.

Price’s recent projects with Baker have included a music documentary and live tape sessions for the Levi's Your Voice. Your Way campaign. Here he captures the singer-songwriter's easy charisma in a more reflective place than his previous music videos, as a lone soul during lockdown.

It offers more evidence of Baker's unique role in London's musical landscape, as a troubadour, ploughing his own furrow, chronicling real life during hard times. An important, original voice in the great city.

JON E PRICE: 

I simply wanted to embrace this stillness and shoot a portrait of Hak, live on the cobbles...

“Wobbles On Cobbles is a project that came about from Hak and I collaborating previously on commercial projects and wanting to do something different, at a different pace.

"Hak wrote the song while we were all in the transient time of lockdown. I think because of this the music sub-consciously had a melancholy to it which is reflected in the words and his compositions. I simply wanted to embrace this stillness and shoot a portrait of Hak, live on the cobbles using both live and studio recordings of the track.”
