Fiona Bevan (Mr Hudson, Ed Sheeran etc) reveals video for ‘Rebel Without A Cause’


Fiona Bevan pic 1Acclaimed songwriter Fiona Bevan has unveiled a video for her new single Rebel Without A Cause. Taken from her debut album Talk To Strangers, due on April 28th, Fiona aptly describes her debut album as ‘pop in disguise’. The dozen, dynamic songs on Talk To Strangers have hooks, harmonies and melodies that linger from first listen, but they are defiantly timeless as opposed to time-bound, as rooted in the past as they are in the present and purposely hard to pin down.

Talking of the single, Fiona says;

I wrote Rebel Without A Cause just after the London riots which left my street smashed up and smoking. It made me think of listless teenage frustration and the feeling of not knowing what to do with yourself… So I stole the James Dean title, and used it as a backdrop for a love song about escaping.

I made the video with Emile Kelly and Jackson Ducasse, driving a beaten-up old convertible through debt-ravaged southern Spain, wild swimming in dirty streams, getting lost on sun-struck mountain-tops and shacking up at cheap motels.
