Mitchell Bai­ley film­ing mu­sic video in Glace Bay on Sun­day.

If you no­tice a large gath­er­ing in the park­ing lot of Sweet Side of the Moon Bak­ery and Café on Sun­day, don’t worry — it’s just the film­ing of Glace Bay hip hop artist Mitchell Bai­ley’s lat­est video.

In fact, the per­son­able 21-year-old wouldn’t mind at all if you dropped by dur­ing the event at 78 Mc­K­een St.

“I’m en­cour­ag­ing sup­port­ers to come out on Sun­day at 1 p.m.,” said Bai­ley who has even set up a Face­book page so you can tell him if you plan on at­tend­ing.

The event will see the shoot­ing of the of­fi­cial mu­sic video for Bai­ley’s sin­gle “Oprah Win­frey.” It’s the sin­gle off Bai­ley’s lat­est EP, “Sea­son Two,” which, ac­cord­ing to the lo­cal per­former has been do­ing well on mu­sic plat­forms iTunes and Spo­tify.

“It went amaz­ingly well — it did bet­ter than “Sea­son One,” said Bai­ley. “I charted fourth on the Cana­dian Hip Hop charts for the coun­try on iTunes.”

Bai­ley ad­mits he spent much of the early days of the EP’s re­lease glued to his phone, watch­ing how his mu­sic charted. There were plenty of sur­prises in­clud­ing a pe­riod when his CD passed rap su­per­star Eminem on the Cana­dian charts.

“It was kind of stress­ful but it went well,” he said, now look­ing back at the EP’s Novem­ber re­lease.

“Sea­son Two” fol­lows “Sea­son One” which was re­leased in Septem­ber, both part of an on­go­ing se­ries that will end

when Bai­ley de­cides to stop it. You can ex­pect the next in­stall­ment, “Sea­son Three” some­time in Fe­bru­ary or March.

Bai­ley plans on mov­ing to Mon­treal in Jan­uary where he will do the writ­ing and record­ing of the next EP.

Bai­ley de­cided to re­lease “Sea­son Two” so quickly after “Sea­son One” to keep his ca­reer mo­men­tum go­ing and so far, it seems to have worked.

“All the songs on ‘Sea­son Two’ were cre­ated since Septem­ber,” said Bai­ley. “It’s a per­fect rep­re­sen­ta­tion of where I am at right now.”

In ad­di­tion to his mu­sic, Bai­ley is in­volved in www. young­su­per­stars.ca which of­fers a cloth­ing line, a pub­lic re­la­tions ser­vice and other prod­ucts for young mu­si­cians to fur­ther their ca­reers.
