4 Days Till The New Video Drops! - March 6th

The third video to be released off of my album The Unspoken Word is Boombastic. What has to have been one of the most challenging songs off of this record, was also one of the most rewarding songs. Produced by Woodstock (from the group Crown City Rockers ) who also directed the video (the 3rd in a series shot entirely on his iPhone 3G – yeah his iPhone!!), this track had me sweating from its intensity, and all that I wanted to pour into it. I believe I wrote at least 20 different versions of verses for Boombastic, along with at least as many studio sessions. There was the occasional perfectionism that crept in, to the "Oh $hit, I got an idea for the 2nd verse, let's record!" all the way to simple mood of the delivery I was trying to achieve. Honestly speaking, I couldn't have completed it without the patience and encouragement of Woodstock! For real, the cat had to have been thinking "WTF! You want to do another take? Session?" but the vibe was always positive. When it was nailed down, we both knew it was right...


 

When it came time to shoot the video, I really didn't have any ideas for it. Then Woodstock let loose the creative visions he was having and vintage boomboxes, reel to reel tapes, cassettes and green screens appeared! We even brought back the lab coat dude from the album promo video (a personal favorite of mine btw). I'm still amazed at how much we were able to do with a iPhone 3Gs, vintage audio material and old fashioned creativity! The video drops on March 6th and I can't wait to share it with ya! Peace!!
