Good morning! My french press is strong this morning and I ate two chocolate chip cookies for breakfast…shhh…don’t tell!
Exciting news! Last night we posted the new music video for the title track of our latest record, Faint Not. We filmed the video one wintry night here in Nashville. The forecast called for 3 inches of snow that night, and turns out, the weather folks were right! We started shooting right around midnight and when we wrapped at 3:30am, all 3 inches had fallen! It was beautiful.
It’s funny, I never thought that we’d be able to make music videos. I figured that’s something that “real” artists do, and because we’re such a small operation I forget that we’re “real” artists too…whatever that means. It still amazes me that independent bands are able to accomplish so much. We couldn’t do any of it without help from our friends, and this video really was a group effort. Our good friend Nathaniel Schweinberg (fightthecurrent.org) shot and edited the video, and our friend David Gould was our sound and lighting tech….he held a boom box and wore a ridiculously bright light on his head. Hehe. Yes, the fun parts of being independent and not having a real budget for the video. 🙂 But it was so fun and it’s things like that that make for great stories and bonding experiences!
Now that I’ve rambled on a bit, I leave you with the video:
