Americana Highways brings you this video premiere of Noah Smith’s song “Shoulda Seen Me Yesterday” written by Noah Smith & Jacob Powell. “Shoulda Seen Me Yesterday is Noah Smith on vocals; Grady Saxman on drums; Sol Philcox on guitar; Tim Denbo on bass; Danny Radar on acoustic guitar and Billy Nobel on keys. It was mixed by Jim Cooley and produced by Grady Saxman.
The video was by Noah Smith, and directed by Dustin’s Way Collective. A close-to-home dramatic rendering of a break-up, the video dovetails seamlessly with the song. Noah Smith captures the senselessness of human relationships in his country music.
The song is about a similar relationship Jacob & I both experienced, and we had both gone through the valley of getting over heartbreak. Sometimes you see that person (or even worse, their family) at the grocery store and they say things like “you look real good” or “I’m glad to see you’re moving on and enjoying life again.” The truth is, it could have been just yesterday that your whole life was in shambles.
“Shoulda Seen Me Yesterday” is about both sides of a breakup story. Part of that story is about walking through the mess of a broken relationship, but it also is about the hope that we find on the other side. — Noah Smith
