Today we are proud to debut the first music video from our band Motel Mirrors, in collaboration with Beale Street Caravan, as a part of their #IListenToMemphis series. The “I Wouldn’t Dream of It” video was directed by Christian Walker and shot in the Galloway House, the historic Memphis church that was the site of the first ever paid performance by Johnny Cash and the Tennessee Two. The music you hear is the live performance you see in the band shots - we shot it like a music video, and Amy and I then lip-synced to the live performance we’d just recorded. The song is from our new album, “In The Meantime”, which we are also excited to announce reached #28 last week on the Americana Albums airplay chart from the Americana Music Association. We hope you enjoy the video and please feel free to share.
Speaking of Beale Street Caravan, I’ve been lucky to have been featured on the radio broadcast the last two weeks in a row. BSC captured my record release show set last month, celebrating my new album, “Heart Shaped Shadow”.
The latest episode of BSC features live performances from Dale Watson’s 2018 Ameripolitan Awards show. Recorded this past February at the Guest House at Graceland, this was the 5th year for the formerly Austin, Texas-based awards ceremony, and its first in Memphis. I was fortunate enough to play guitar in the house band that night, and the featured performers include Asleep at the Wheel, Nikki Lane, Sleepy LaBeef, Dickey Lee, Jason D. Williams, James Intveld, Dale Watson and the Blackwood Brothers, and more.
