“Almost Mine” is Mare Wakefield on acoustic guitar and vocals; Nomad Ovunc on piano, accordion, percussion, backing vocals, and keys/synth; Brian Allen on upright and electric bass; Wes Little on drums; and Tim Galloway on electric and slide guitars and mandolin.
The video was filmed by Martin O’Connor with video direction, editing and post-production by Nomad Ovunc. The video captures the song’s intention with dancers — as the elusive nature of dance so aptly demonstrates the elusive nature of the heart. Mare Wakefield and Nomad shoot the arrow of longing straight through your chest with repeated crescendos: “I’ll always hold on and I’ll always fall hard… you were always almost mine.”
I love how this video came together! We struggled a bit initially with the concept. We knew we wanted some kind of old-timey look for part of it. But it wasn’t until we thought of incorporating dancers that it all really came together. It’s actually perfect because that’s exactly what’s happening in the lyrics of the song as well the couple is dancing around a fully committed romantic relationship — leaning in pulling away — ‘always almost mine.’ — Mare Wakefield
