Former Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise’s move to Melbourne has resulted in some big opportunities.

IT has been almost two years since Launceston singer-songwriter Heloise left the state for Melbourne, and already it is bringing in big opportunities.

Heloise has just released her first ever video clip to go with her award-winning single This is Home.

The clip was produced by well-respected filmmaker Wilk, who has worked with the likes of Sarah Blasko, and was made possible after Heloise won the Bank Of Melbourne’s second annual Melbourne Music Bank last October with the song.

The win also saw the 21-year-old record for two days at Melbourne’s Sing Sing Studios and receive PR and marketing advice and 500 CDs of her recording. Her song This is Home will be used in a Bank of Melbourne advertising campaign later this year.

Heloise said she had been bombarded with media requests since the clip was released earlier this week.

‘‘I had four Q and A features sent to me and they said ‘can you have these back by tomorrow?’’ Heloise said on Thursday.

‘‘I’ve been bombarded, but it’s really good. I’m loving it.’’

Although Heloise left the state in May 2013, she still returns a lot to spend time with her mum, Steph Sowerby, and perform with her band, also called Heloise.

‘‘It’s gone quickly,’’ she said.

‘‘(This summer) we played Falls, played Festivale, played Party in the Paddock, we did a couple of weddings here and there and it’s mostly been preparing for this (film) clip.’’

The song to the clip, which won the Music Bank award, had to be about why the musician loved Melbourne and what inspired them as an artist.

‘‘Having freshly moved from Tassie, I wrote about my experience moving here, all the places I’ve found, people I’ve come across … hidden gems across the city,’’ Heloise said.

The idea for the song’s film clip was Wilk’s.

‘‘I think it really suited the song,’’ she said.

The clip was filmed on a railway just out of Melbourne with the production crew hiring out five carriages for two and a half hours.

People on the train are extras, with Heloise liking the fact that her band members got to play a part.

Band members include fellow former Launceston musicians Nic Symons, Jared Campbell, Lee Mallinson and Heidi Maguire.

The This Is Home single and video will officially be launched on April 30 at the Workers Club in Brunswick, Victoria.

‘‘I’ve got a lot of family and friends coming over, so I’ll be pulling out the mattresses,’’ Heloise laughed.

After the launch, it will be back to writing, performing and recording, with Heloise and her band hoping to release a second EP by the end of the year.

‘‘Ultimately the dream is to be able to make a career out of this,’’ Heloise said.

‘‘I’d love to be able to be successful and do what I love for the rest of my life.’’
