Lush cinematography of the guitar playing hands, hands writing a note, and candle flames lends a poignant visual to this song of longing. “Send me bad news in writing … flame defines this aching in my chest…leaving it to smolder is the best that I can get.” Quite a lovely project.
I feel so fortunate to have worked with Eli Gardiner, Lupine Brewing, and Wren Floral to create this video for the first single off of the album “Sweet, Difficult Sounds.” The colors, motion, and abstract images that Eli captured are stunning, and bring the song to a new level, evoking more nuances to the story within the song. — Doyle Turner
