In the midst of a largely auditory industry, music videos are a special treat, giving us a visual experience to accompany the songs we already love. With the opportunity to capture fans' attention in a totally different way, music videos are a work of art that take a lot of time, effort and creativity.
One artist who has excelled with music videos over the years is Jeremy Camp. Ranging anywhere from a simple, well-produced live recording to a detailed thematic storyline, this is an area Jeremy has more than covered in his nearly two decade long career. In honor of his brand new album The Answer, which has already produced five music videos, we're taking a look at our top 10 favorite music videos from Jeremy's catalogue.
1. "The Answer"
One of the newest videos from the Camp crew and the title track from the brand new album, the video for "The Answer" is simple yet powerful as it follows the real-life stories of several people who have found Christ to be the answer that held them up in hard seasons. As an emotional bonus, Jeremy's own story of redemption through tragic loss closes out the video.
With a splash of bright color as Jeremy's sound moves into its pop era, the "Reckless" video is a visually entertaining success from beginning to end.
3. "Christ In Me"
One of the best storyline narratives found in a Jeremy Camp music video, the "Christ In Me" visual begins with people breathing through an oxygen mask to symbolize being attached to the things of this world, then ends in a powerful way as, one by one, they throw off the masks to represent placing their trust in an all-sufficient Christ.
4. "My Defender"
One of five brand new videos that have accompanied new release The Answer, "My Defender" takes on the storyline of a couple walking through the woods who come face-to-face with danger but escape unharmed to represent the truth of this song: "You're my defender / You fight for me / I will remember You're all I need."
5. "Walk By Faith"
With a storyline that lives out its title, this throwback video for "Walk By Faith" walks through the grief of losing a loved one.
6. "Speaking Louder Than Before"
Taking it back to Jeremy's rock days, the "Speaking Louder Than Before" video is a power-packed reminder that we can't stay silent when it comes to sharing the Gospel.
7. "The Way"
Another visual reminder that points to the importance of sharing Christ, "The Way" is one of Jeremy's most successful music videos at 4.5 million views.
8. "Same Power"
Taking on his worship side, the "Same Power" video features voice-overs from Jeremy that give a backstory on his heart behind the song.
Another brand new video, "Storm" is a powerful visual that shows a longing for the presence of God.
10. "I Still Believe"
While the video for "I Still Believe" is simply a live recording, the acoustic performance on the song with the beautiful orchestra in the background captures the tender, emotional essence of the heartfelt track in a more personal way than a storyline ever could have.
