"Zotz has made a truly mesmerizing music video for this song which in my opinion maintains the pedigree set forth by its expansive parent album Local Honey."

GOOD BONES - The sophomore video from LOCAL HONEY, releasing on iTunes September 21. 2018 

So video # 2...when my partner and I first bought a home, we were told the old place had "good bones." I have always been fascinated by the history that walls hold, the stories they could tell. And just like us, they're finite things, they come and go - sadly, these days, all too easily they get torn down, as ours did when we sold it. When we started playing this song live, I had no idea how many people would relate to it and respond with such enthusiasm.

Good Bones is another co-write with long-time collaborator and former Two Roads Home partner, Bryan Williston, and has a warm folk-country feel. It features my live band - including Joel and Chris Saunders, Bryden Chernoff, Anna Marie Therrien, Anne Gingras, and a special appearance by B-Dubs Williston himself - with videography and direction by Ryan Osman.  

Thank you to our friend Marney Simmons, whose charming and traditional dwelling in Mulgrave, Nova Scotia inspired the stories in Good Bones...check out the full version on the album for ALL the stories https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/local-honey/1420231383  A huge thank you to the Drury family, for the generous use of their century home - and all the tea, coffee, crackers and cheese we could handle - for the shoot. 

And thank you to Ryan for his careful attention to detail; it, combined with the presence of the band, create the genuine fondness and humour found in human connection and add depth to the message of the song: that we stand alone, but within a larger community, and that our bones, like a home’s, must be lived in and loved if we’re to make any sense of this life.

I hope you love it!

Big Hope - the first video for my upcoming CD, Local Honey, releasing on iTunes September 21, 2018 

BIG HOPE is a co-write with my former Two Roads Home partner Bryan Williston. Inspired by the challenges of a refugee family struggling to re-unite in Canada, it was shot by musician and videographer Joel Saunders. The gorgeous setting in the Scarborough Bluffs area of Toronto reflects the optimism and joy the song is infused with. 

We had a blast filming this video. It's been a few years since I've been in front of a camera - I was an actor for many years as well as a musician, but music ended up paying the bills better, imagine that! - but it all came back to me easily. And Joel's editing has enriched the look and feel so much.

Hope you enjoy it!!
