A long time friend of the 'Lost in Translation' actress, Baylin has allowed Johansson's creative juice to flow on her music video.
Jessie Baylin, an emerging Nashville artist who has all the connections, releases her first music video for the single "Hurry Hurry". The wife of Kings of Leon's drummer, Nathan Followill, tapped her childhood friend Scarlett Johansson to direct the video.
"She is an incredible director and is going to do wonderful things from behind the lens," Baylin said about Johansson in an interview with AmericanSongwriter.com. "We've known each other since we were girls so she knows who I am and allowed me to just be myself." The video is set in an empty bridge, topped up with post-production effect.
"One of the greatest gifts of growing up with Jessie has been watching her develop as a musician," Scarlett told MTV Hive. They both attended New York's Professional Children's School.
"Hurry Hurry" is lifted from Baylin's new album "Little Spark" which is released this month. Speaking of the lead track, Baylin said, "That song came about very quickly. I had recently moved to Nashville and was living in someone else's world, trying to figure out where I fit in."
