Making a Video

Thanks to Tom Fahey, an ATL fashion photographer/cupcake store owner/yard sale aficionado, we made a music video last week. I've never performed quite in this way before, though I've put out a couple of videos for previous albums (see the video page for those). Tom brought in his brother-in-law and film editor Corey, and off we went into the world of Chattahoochee Nature Preserve fireflies. The video is based on the song "Fireflies", one the radio singles we picked a few weeks ago.

I love the song, especially because Bryan Owings played chains on it, as well as drums. But my favorite part of the video process was playing seated next to a standing fireplace in the middle of the woods. My daughter also participated in the video, because the main line of the song is "Little girl in your nightgown/chasing after fireflies". She did an amazing job running around on tree stumps and roots.

We also did a band filming, which we couldn't film outside because of an Atlanta thunderstorm. Oh well. My friends had an amazing foyer that worked perfectly as a stage setting. Fats Kaplin drove over from Nashville with his wife Kristi Rose, and we filmed for a few hours with bassist Kris and drummer Darren. Thanks guys.

Perhaps I most enjoyed meeting Amber, the stylist, who has lived in Atlanta for just over a year, but she knows every fun restaurant and meeting place. She vamped me up quite nicely, and also told me about a place where you can get a carrot hot dog. That's impressive. Video release date? Around August 1st. Good luck, Tom and Corey!
