I've had the opportunity to work with Paul Taken on several projects over the last few years. He's a talented musician and songwriter who understands the value of video for marketing his music. He approached me about making a music video for one of his latest songs, "Lonesome Road" with some pretty unique ideas. That's one of the things that I really admire about Paul- he is so creative and likes to think outside the box!
We got together and shot a few hours of video last December and I'm so happy with the final result!
As you watch, be sure to note the many talents of Mr. Paul Taken:
Acoustic Guitar/ Vocals- Paul Taken
Lead Guitar- Paul Taken
Slide Guitar- Paul Taken
Bass Guitar- Paul Taken
Drums- Paul Taken
He even does all of his own stunts!
From the video side of things, I've put a lot of time into crafting this final video to fit Paul's initial vision. There were many drafts, texts, and notes exchanged, but it is all worth it to see a fun video paired with a truly great tune!
