Summertime is still here, and Jefferson Berry has offered us something to celebrate and motivate us to get out there and enjoy what it has to offer. With recognizable scenes of the East Coast drive to the beach with the top down, the stage is set for the sand and the busking. And the song will bring an easy smile to your face, as is Jefferson Berry’s way.
Blazing hot summers in Philly prompt a Friday Night exodus to the New Jersey beaches. Folks have their favorite spots “down the shore.” And over time, these trips become romantic.
There was no casting involved in this shoot. I’m crazy about Blue Eyes and she had this slick convertible that worked well with the drone footage. As the single on Double Deadbolt Logic, “Get to the Shore” did well last summer (2020) on radio and Spotify. But we just couldn’t get enough of the right assets to get the video out last summer. I went down to the Asbury Park Boardwalk on a bright but windy day and shot the performance the video needed this past June. Underneath it all is another great job by my band, The Urban Acoustic Coalition. — Jefferson Berry
