Brian Blake – New Year’s Day
Americana Highways brings you this video premiere of Brian Blake’s song “New Years Day” from his recently released album Book of Life. The album was produced by Walt Wilkins and Ron Flynt; recorded and mixed by Ron Flynt at Jumping Dog Studio in Austin. It was mastered by Jerry Tubb.
“New Year’s Day” is Brian Blake on acoustic guitar and vocals; Rich Brotherton on acoustic lead guitar; John Chipman on percussion; and Ron Flynt on bass and Wurlitzer.
The video for “New Years Day” was filmed at the historic Crumpler-Ferguson log cabin in Hernando Mississippi, which is nearly 175 years old. The video was produced by NieStudio. It was directed and edited by Melanie Hopkins, with cinematography by Daniel Hopkins, art direction by Beth Swanson, and assistance by J. Swanson.
Reflecting on what used to be, on New Year’s Day in ’99, making love to “Bell Bottom Blues.” The cabin setting, with its crackling paint doorways, old rocking chairs and decades old chink, provides a strong and timeless context for the memory of a faded relationship’s beginning so long ago. We all have memories like this one.
This song is a rearview look through a man’s eyes who is a couple decades down the road from a lost love. The one that got away. — Brian Blake
