Americana Highways brings you this premiere of Jeremiah Johnson’s “White Lightning” video from his forthcoming release Heavens to Betsy. The album was produced by Pete Matthews with executive producer Thomas Ruff; mixed and engineered by Pete Matthews and Toby Vest at High/Low Recording in Memphis, TN. It was mastered by Pauler Acoustics. “White Lightning” is Jeremiah Johnson on guitar and lead vocals; Frank Bauer on saxophone; Tony Anthonis on bass; Benet Schaeffer on drums; Rick Steff (Lucero) on B3 and keys; with Tony Antonelli (previously in The Devon Allman Project) on percussion.
The video was produced by Convergence Media Group; directed by Riq Dilly with assistant Adam Meredith; edited by Riq Dilly and Matt Bills with audio assistant Larry Boehmer. The stage set is courtesy of barn owner Mark Disper.
Jeremiah Johnson is as dedicated to his craft as they come, and his sincere intensity echoes all over his new album Heavens to Betsy. Johnson radiates sonic energy in trippy country flashes of musicianship and lightning, and this video reveals that in visual amalgamation.
Filmed in a Missouri barn built in 1879 on a freezing day in January, you can almost feel the cold when you watch. Despite the cold, and the fact that I couldn’t move my fingers or feel my toes, we captured the southern feel of the song. It’s nothing a shot or two of white lighting can’t cure! — Jeremiah Johnson
