What a beautiful video Daniel and his team have created, there is nothing out there at the moment to touch it, and i mean nothing, and it fits wonderfully with my song, it captures everything perfectly without pulling at the lyric, and it leaves everyone who watches it feeling good, feeling the fresh summer breeze, feeling that we all want to join in and share in the happiness, in short we all feel the love that has been put into the making of this song and the video..
I’ve set up my own little label, trying to do this on my own, it’s hard work with a limited budget and no big record label behind me, but i’m one of the lucky ones, I have many people who want to help me; my wife, my kids, my friends. And I met Daniel through a mutual friend, and I can now call him my friend too.
Same goes for Tristan in the studio, he is recording me when he can, but obviously he’s a busy boy, and I understand why, he’s one of the best out there. But if it wasn’t for people like Tristan and Daniel then I wouldn’t have such a wonderful recording of one of my song, or such a beautiful video to go with it, and we have much to do yet, we’ve recorded a four track EP together, but next up is the full album with Tristan and more wonderful video’s to come from Daniel..
A big thank you to James Taylor who came into the studio to sprinkle a bit of his magic, his percussion work is beautiful, and he’s a lovely fella too. Also a massive thank you to all the skaters, I hope you have all enjoyed being a part of the video as much as we have all enjoyed the opportunity to enter your wonderful world.
