Music Video Misunderstanding

We’re going to clear up a bit of confusion that should of been cleared up AWHILE ago. The main character in the music video for “Coming Down” is not, nor ever was the lead singer in The Enemy Lovers! He is but an actor in an epic tale of a white flag… (click here to watch)

This never seemed to be a serious confusion in my head. But tonight we were hanging out with Desmond Myers (a very talented artist also working with Elephantom – click here to check him out!) at our apartment in Germany, sipping on some great German beer before dinner, and he looks at me and starts laughing. He said that he just figured out, tonight!!, that I was the lead singer and the main character in our music video was just an actor. He had been wondering why he hadn’t seen or met him yet and was thinking maybe we got rid of him and replaced him with me!!

This is hilarious because I’ve actually had several people ask me if he was in the band, but I never paid it any mind.

Oh yeah, and the new album is coming along great!! We are ultra inspired by it thus far.

Something New

We started using this old school method of recording vocal melodies and harmonies on this record. It’s nice not being shoved into a small vocal isolation booth for a change.

This is for a song we call Something New. Steven is working his crazy upper ranges here -

The view from where I stand

This little band is working a bit of magic on the streets of Regensburg, Germany that only a handful of people in the world will ever experience. This is also my family and my friends who have joined me on this exploration of life and it’s mysteries. This is pure enlightenment. This is the view from where I stand.

In a parade that children lead...

Steven and I are family oriented people. We love our parents, our brother and our sister-in-laws. We love our wives and our kids. As you probably know by now, I have a son named Ezra. But what you may not know, is Steven and Jen are adopting a little baby girl in about two weeks!! He leaves us here in Germany tomorrow morning at 6am to go home and begin a family. He will return in due time to continue our European invasion! Wish them all the luck and best of wishes as they become parents. We’ll post updates on the growing family…

These next couple of studio videos are in honor of my little creation. His name is Ezra and he’s the real super star! This video proves it showing him completely natural in only a collar shirt and a diaper. He’s about to track some drums but then suddenly changes his mind and wants to lay a tambourine track instead. But before he can do that he’s got to close the door, because that’s what we do.

This first video has the track “Parade” playing in the background, a new song that will be on our new full length record. His voice was not recorded here because we can’t yet predict when he’s actually going to sing, but if this note would of been recorded it would have been used! It’s in time and in key!!

And this is the collar shirt and diaper video I was telling you about.
