Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be posting some new video content – the result of a recent session with Box of Light Studios in Bloomsburg. Though I have many audio recordings, video has always been pushed to the backseat. Taping shows is always risky, and finding time to go through all that footage is a challenge. So I was very happy to see Box of Light offering this service, very close to home. While I’d also like to do some more creative music videos with graphics, the goal here was to capture some very simple acoustic guitar and vocal performances that represent what I do live in my solo act.
Rand Whipple and his crew (Julia Cámara-Calvo and Abbi Parker) were very easy to work with and did a great job. I can’t praise them enough. The most difficult part of the session (or rather, the days leading up to it) was staying healthy, as Audra had contracted an upper-respiratory infection. Through copious amounts of Airborne, hand sanitizer and quarantine, I managed to stay healthy for the session (and after) – a small miracle. Video is one of those things that requires a lot of planets to align, and it seemed they finally did for us here.
Audra has since recovered, and perhaps one day I will get her out in front of the camera with the uke. Until then, enjoy the fruits of this project and let me know what you think.
