New Christmas Video "It's Christmas All The Time In Heaven"
It’s that time of year again, the time where I spend the last couple weeks before Christmas writing, recording and producing an original Christmas tune and the accompanying music video for it. The song is usually absurdly tragic or mournful and this years isn’t really an exception. While the narrative isn’t easy to glean from the lyrics this year it’s a song about a war veteran who is injured and wheelchair bound and while working as a mall Santa experiences and severe bout of PTSD and says some unfortunate things to children.
I’m pretty happy with the results this year, I got the immortal fingers of Victor Lewis to play some guitar solos after the first chorus and I got my lovely life partner Michelle to sing some choir vocals behind me. The video was an idea I've had jangling around in my skull for awhile where I take a stationary long take and slowly zoom out to reveal that it’s in a totally different location. It’s pretty rough in spots and if I had given myself more than a week to put it all together I could have ironed out some of these creases but y’know, that’s life and whatnot.
