Music Videos and Indie Artists

I am currently working very hard on editing the music video for A Touch Too Much. Our band, Candy Apple Blue, wants to give you our all!

We know that a lot of indie artists, in our musical peer group, don't take the time to shoot a music video. While it's true that filming and editing music videos can be a lot of hard work; I always personally felt that was a missed opportunity. Music videos give us a chance to connect with you on a completely different level. 

Hoyt and I grew up in the golden age of MTV. The artists that we got most excited about as kids always had music videos. 

What are your thoughts on this subject?

Working With Nick Bramlett

"When the three of us get together, there's musical magic in the air!"

Working with vocalist Nick Bramlett is always such a pleasure. He's a powerhouse of a performer who always sings with so much passion. He takes his craft very seriously. There are so many things we love about his vocal styling; including the subtle nuances he pours into his performances that add up in a big way.

For those of you who did not know, Nick is a Virgo and like all Virgo's he is a bit of a perfectionist. Sidenote: Both Michael Jackson and Freddie Mercury were Virgos as well. 

We know we can always count on Nick to take our songs to the next level and breathe life into them.
