I traveled to Switzerland last summer and brought my trusty ukulele with me, thinking it might be fun to grab some footage in the Alpine mountains… and HOLY MOLY did we get some footage! Everything about Switzerland was breathtaking… the steep mountains, the way the clouds meandered through the peaks, hearing distant Alpine horns while drinking wine on the porch of our AirBnB, the hiking, oh and the PARAGLIDERS. Man this place was stunning, and I couldn’t help myself but to sing my happy little Bob Ross of a song – “A Cloud” – on the tops of the mountains. I know it’s silly to have two music videos for the same song but… can you blame me? I hope you enjoy it 🙂
I booked the first show for this tour back in early January. One of my regular venues up in Michigan reached out and was ready to book for the summer, and I couldn’t say no! Three months later, in mid April, I’m finally finished booking this tour. I sent hundreds of emails, had dozens of polite declinations, dozens and dozens of no responses at all, but just enough responses to build a month long tour! The booking process is always stressful, but I *so* look forward to getting on the road to see old friends and make new ones 🙂 Please join the Facebook event and invite your friends! 😀
I’ve had the concept for this music video basically since I wrote the song “A Cloud.” In lieu of doing another round of Total Request songs as I’ve done for the last few years, I wanted to bring a video to everyone that highlighted my own music rather than other people’s music. So I buckled down and started hashing out what every line should look like. I’ve been working on this video for about a month and a half, one frame at a time for 2,791 frames. I’ve had the idea for this video basically since I wrote the song. I’m so happy to finally share this with you, enjoy!
