Directed by Lee Watkins and filmed at Triumph Coffee in Kelowna BC, the music video flips between Josh and Olivia, following the storyline of a couple going back to a familiar place after a break-up and feeling okay with it ending.

Today we’re very excited to be teaming up with Josh to give our readers an exclusive first look at the “That Was Then, This Is Now” music video ahead of it’s official premiere tomorrow!

Speaking about the song, Josh said “This song was really about collaboration. I had never written a song with Olivia before, but had heard of her through a mutual songwriter friend, Andrew Allen. I really love her music and voice and suggested that the three of us should get together to write a song! We ended up writing “That Was Then, This Is Now”, and both Olivia and I loved it so much we wanted to collaborate on the release, I think the lyrics have such a cool meaning, about how a relationship can be so good at one time, yet later it can feel like that magic just doesn’t exist anymore, no matter how much you want it to.”
