Americana Highways is pleased to present the video of Mia and Jonah’s song “Spin as One,” from their upcoming album Spin as One. The album is due to be released on September 22, and was produced by Alejandro Speranza (Louise Goffin) and Jonah Blumstein. The video was produced by Los Angeles and San Francisco based duo Mia and Jonah.
The album Spin as One features Mia Mustari’s vocals with Jonah Blumstein on guitars and harmonica — with Alan Grubner (the Louie television show) on violin and Chris Pandolfi (the Infamous Stringdusters) on banjo; backed by rhythm section Steve DiStanislao (Crosby, Stills & Nash) on drums and Seth Ford-Young (Tom Waits) on bass.
“Spin As One” is a lighthearted juxaposition of snappy guitar licks, rhythms, and Pandolfi’s banjo with Grubner’s sorrowful violin. The instrumental arrangement, along with Mia and Jonah’s vocals mingling with hope, backs scenes of family frolicking. “Spin as One”‘s video presents parents spinning with a child in the way we all long to do in the back of our minds amidst harsh realities of today. Both the video and the song provide a message of simple courage.
“In this climate of political and social turbulence, the song “Spin as One” echoes our desire to lift up and out of the chaos surrounding us – and remember our ability as a people to join together for the benefit of all.” – Mia and Jonah
