The 2020 Prism Prize for Best Canadian Music Video was awarded to Peter Huang, for his clip for Jessie Reyez's Far Away. We will continue to profile noteworthy Canadian videos, including this one featuring a Toronto-based experimental songwriter.


Scott Hardware - Millionaire

Toronto-based experimental songwriter, Scott Harword, under the alias Scott Hardware, creates a variety of melancholic sounds with roots in celebratory dance and pop music. Hardware has been producing and creating music for many years, and under a collection of different names. Before taking form as Scott Hardware, he made sounds under the name Ken Park, playing in bands like Hooded Fang and Ostrich Tuning.

His latest single, Millionaire, off his album Engel, is an incredibly delicate song with guitars gliding over the sounds of soft harps, accompanied by Deidre Nox’s beautiful vocals. The video, directed by Scott and Monica Moraru, brings to life the dreamy nature of the song, with a story that follows a mournful and repetitive memory of a one-night stand that occurred years ago between Scott and another character. It shows exactly that one encounter can live with you forever in the most beautiful way.

Director: Monica Moraru & Scott Hardware

Art Direction: Clara May Puton

Director of Photography and Editing: Johan Arthurs

Make-up: Halloway Jones & AJ Lauren
