NEW MUSIC VIDEO

Hello :) Excited to share that the music video for Ashes, from the new Numbers record is underway. It's such a thrill to connect a song, and it's meaning and inspiration, visually. To see it all unfold is beyond exciting. NO ENERGY LIKE THE CREATIVE ENERGY!

I'll share a little back story about Ashes and what inspired the song... and thus...the video. I'll make it brief :)

While walking in a cemetery one day, something I do often, I was quite moved by the fact that there was a large section which was in a state of disarray. Stones that marked the resting place of peoples loved ones were decaying, broken and some had fallen over. Names no longer readable... a very sad sight. These were individuals that had families...hopes... dreams... passions... and this was all that was left. A broken, decaying, moss covered stone with a name not readable.

Ones name is very profound. Fathers give their name to their sons. The first of the many gifts from a Dad. Yet, I could not read the names those whom I was encountering on this day.... I apologized to them, AND their Dads that this had happened to their name... 

In the distance... an auto salvage yard. Cars lined up as far as the eye could see.... rusted... flattened... in various pieces... with animals nesting in its decaying cabins. I thought... At one time, these were the "cool cars"... the ones we see commercials about and some eagerly await their arrivals for the new model year. But now? Rotting. Forgotten. How many family stories must lay inside these decaying remains... How many songs were listened to? How many Dads showed how many sons and daughters how to drive in how many of those cars? It was a powerful visual. it began the whole thought that everyONE.... AND everyTHING... goes away. To dust we shall return...

I wrote the entire Ashes track on this day...
