Payton Rae’s latest video, “Not Your Cinderella” debuted earlier this month. The clip is the second created from her five song EP, Dare To Live. Houston-based OOA Productions produced the effort which was filmed mostly in the historic district of Galveston, TX at the Trube Castle.
“I get very excited when it comes to music videos; my mom and I are always throwing out ideas.” said Rae. “I was on the computer one day looking for places we could use, and I came across the Trube Castle right in Galveston, and I knew that had to be it! I’m so blessed to have gotten to shoot at such an amazing place.”
Fifteen year old Payton Rae’s album was produced by Nashville veteran Brian White and features songs created by a marquis of acomplished songwriters including Steve Bogard, Brett Beavers, Stephony Smith, Shelly Fairchild and Rae.
Rae has over 62,000 Twitter followers and 2.8 million YouTube views at her dedicated channel.
