On the set of Hedley’s most recent video, “Kiss You Inside Out,” @Jordans_life asks Jacob what’s the key to making the perfect music video (let’s be real, Jacob is a natural). Surprisingly, Jacob says he relates to sweet/genuine rappers. Staying on the track of rap music, Jordan goes way-back and shares one of his own personal music videos on set.
@Jordans_life and Jacob apparently can’t do a serious interview. On the set of Hedley’s most recent video, “Kiss You Inside Out,” they talk about stock photo poses for bands and a very disturbing app called “Real Strike.” Jacob and Jordan go over some relatively inappropriate subject matter, including “the bathing suit” area. It’s always an interesting conversation when we talk to anyone from Hedley but this interview was especially funny.
Hedley is certainly maturing as a band – these aren’t a bunch of kids anymore who suddenly made it big. With that maturity has come an interesting perspective on the music business. Hedley talks to us about today’s music biz and releasing their latest album “The Show Must Go On”. We also play some pinball.
Hedley’s first studio album will hit stores on September 6.
Canadian Idol fans will recognize the lead singer as Jacob Hoggard, the quirky top-three finalist from season two.

All other top five finalists from Canadian Idol’s second season have released albums. Winner Kalan Porter’s album, 219 Days, hit stores in November 2004. Theresa Sokyrka, Shane Wiebe and Jason Greeley have all followed suit by releasing solo albums since Canadian Idol 2 wrapped last summer.
