Sprig video up!

In early March my pal Adam Benn and I flew out to CA and made a music video for the title track of my latest solo album, Sprig. The wintery landscapes were stunningly beautiful and I felt blessed to be able to capture some of the magic of the Sierra Foothills where I grew up. Huge thanks to Odd Exhibit Productions and Chris Harvey for the fantastic animation!
