John Shannon

Yesterday John was in town to play another gig at the “Livingroom” in the Lower East Side with songs from his recently released album “American Mystic”.

His performance was amazing, one of the best shows I have seen in years. I had chills when he started the show with the song “Somewhere”. Nobody in the world has heard this song more often then me since I was repeating it over and over again in the four days I spent with John in San Francisco shooting the music video and afterwards editing it for weeks.

Even though I have heard the song probably over 1000 times I it gets better every time I listen to it. “American Mystic” is a fantastic album. You can find here under “reviews” why it deserves to be on top of the charts. Please also take a second to go to the ObliqSound website, check out the album and buy one if you like it! 🙂

I finished editing the video a few weeks ago and it looks really amazing. It should be released within a week or two and I will post a link to view it as soon as it is out. Even though it was one of the hardest things I have ever done spending hundreds of hours on this project was absolutely worth it. I believe in John, I know he will be doing very well and his music will bring beauty into many people’s lives.

We were the perfect team for this project. This is why the video tuned out to be simple, bold and beautiful.
