Whitehorse, Yukon artist Paris Pick has made her return with a video for “Hope for the Best,” her first single since her 2018 debut album.
“Hope for the Best” is a catchy tune that revolves around a stunning guitar riff, as Pick delivers some fun-loving vocals overtop. The accompanying Bullen Brothers-directed video follows Pick as a delivery driver, making the rounds and interacting with some quirky customers.
“The Idea was drawn when one of Whitehorse’s local music venues and pizza restaurants ‘Epic Pizza’ officially closed in 2019,” Pick explains. “It was sad for our music community to see this golden nugget go under. It made me daydream ‘What would it be like to be a pizza delivery girl’ which was a job I thought I would always enjoy as I thoroughly love Pizza as well as being able to drive around and listen to music. I also asked myself ‘how rude are customers to pizza delivery people, or what kind of stuff do pizza deliver people walk-in on?’ and from that I started putting the music video together.”

“Instantly I reached out to the Bullens and asked if they’d like to read my idea over and see if they were interested in helping the concept come to life,” Pick continues. “The Bullens had worked on one of my previous videos for ‘By Your Side’ which was off of my debut album ‘Feeling Love’ so I knew we had a good relationship and worked well together.”
