Peace, Love, Happiness Wrap

May 06 ,2008

I’m pulling into NYC right now and after a week out in LA it feels good to be back on the East Side. We had a killer week in LA–we banged out some press for the Superhero Brother release on 6/24 and shot the video for PLH.

Steve Oritt (Director of A Year and A night) has already completed the video for the title track Superhero Brother and now we have Peace, Love and Happiness almost in the can. The video was shot over the skies of Los Angeles between the hours of 4pm to 10pm. We certainly caught all the magic hours on old school 16mm film. I was hanging out of the side of a helicopter playing my guitar and harmonica while we sped along at 90 mph. Needless to say, it was an exhilarating, somewhat terrifying and a freezing f!#*kin cold evening of inspiration! At the end of the night we all knew that we had shot something special.

I saw Steve last night right after they had finished transferring the film and he was just freaking on how beautiful the footage is. I really can’t wait for you all to check it and it should be done in a couple weeks!

Other than that we are just getting ready to finish the artwork on the record—the Brushfire team has been really making it happen. By the end of the day tomorrow the completed record will be delivered.

Stayed tuned right here for more
