Okay, so I know I didn’t make the announcement here on my blog, but earlier this month I posted to my band’s youtube page that we would be releasing a new music video today for Lives Lost.
The thing is, I thought I could compile a bunch of photos of loved ones over three weeks and put out a heartfelt video. Nothing complicated, just a basic slideshow of people we love, but something happened while I was reaching out to friends and family… I realized this could be something bigger and better and more meaningful than just a handful of pictures. I’d really like to make this video something really good for the soul.
I’m no videographer, photographer, or visual artist by any means, but everything I do I do it from the heart. So I’m apologizing to you, for those of you who have submitted photos and those of you who were patiently waiting for the release. I’m apologizing for not releasing it today, but I realized that I want to take more time on this one. I want to put more love into it. I’m not going to give a release date as of now, but I am going to be doing a little more outreach and (regardless of my saying this wasn’t going to be a PSA in the video) I’m going to put more information in it. Maybe it won’t reach many people. Maybe it’ll only get a few hundred views and never make it on any charts. But if our song can make you smile, if it can give you a little peace, or if it can touch one person who’s struggling with addiction or suicidal thoughts, my job is done.
On that note, I can at least do one thing for you today. Here it is, the full song, downloadable on our ReverbNation page.
Please listen and enjoy and if you like it, share it with your friends. If you’re still on the fence about sending your info, contact me.
