New music video!!


I've been spending a lot of time lately thinking about music videos. Throughout this whole process of making and distributing an EP, I've been really focused on getting the recordings out there... but never really thought about a video until recently.

I've known in the back of my mind that I needed one, but things kept falling through the cracks. A few people said they would help me make one, and that never panned out. I've thought about paying someone to do it for me, but I really don't know where to start.

I'd been getting a little impatient. I'm pretty creative in a lot of ways, but doing video is not one of them. However... I can sure work a camera and know a thing or two about photoshop! So I took matters into my own hands in the past couple of days and whipped up this 'lil video:





What I've ended up with is a slideshow-style compilation of photos of the past year or so, set to my music and lyrics. So basically, my you've got my blog in a nutshell :) Some of these are outtakes, and some of them you might recognize from being featured here.

I'm not sure if I'll make any more videos in this style, but I'm excited about coming up with new possibilities. I could even plan video "shoots," but with photos instead. I think I'm excited to try that out :)

Thanks so much for taking a look (go to Youtube and watch it in HD if possible!!) It means the world to me. Hope you're having the most lovely day. xoxo
