Bluegrass Today is one of my very favorite blogs — I have been a reader ever since it was known as The Bluegrass Blog — and John Lawless is simply a master journalist. Click the link above to check out this lovely article John wrote on me and some of my latest musical pursuits! Thanks, John and Bluegrass Today!!!
I’m so unbelievably excited to release my first ever official music video!!! It has been a while since I’ve focused on writing, but sometimes God has a way of bringing you around. When God gave me this song, I immediately had a strong urge to get into a studio and put a video out of it. I’d never done a video like this before, but everything just fell right in place for it to happen — and here it is!
The video features a stellar cast: Jeremy Stephens, Casey Campbell, P. J. George, and Kevin Buchanan in the band; Richard Smith of Tunesmith Studio heading up tracking; and Brad Benge behind the knobs of the audio/video editing/mixing/mastering. These guys all did an amazing job, with a special shout out to Brad Benge — I’ve been bandmates with Brad and played and sang with him in a variety of situations, but this is the first time we’ve worked together in this way, and he is an awesome creative force to work with!
Lord willing, this will be the first in a series of videos from the tracking session that day at Tunesmith Studio — a series I’ll be referring to as the Tunesmith Sessions. All of the songs were tracked and filmed live simultaneously, with the videographer right in the tracking room with us as the songs were going down! It’s all pretty exciting!!!
Hope you enjoy the new song/video, “The Veil Has Been Lifted.”
The EXTRAVAGANZA was wonderful!!!
