Happy Music

Here’s one of the most enjoyable music videos I have made to date. I actually made this song back in Seoul, South Korea, 2007, on one particularly beautiful morning. I was teaching some gifted students ESL at a University in the afternoons and went in and gave a demo of the song to the students. There was one great student who loved it instantly and started dancing and “grooving” in such a way that is so pleasing and affirmative for a creator to witness. It gave me more confidence in this track and I developed in more. It has great opening riff, which I originally recorded on my Fender Stratocaster. It was a great recording but I tried to make a certain vocal harmony in it, which just didn’t really add to the song and was hard to do.

New Creativity for a New Age

Well I felt inspired the other day with a new microphone plugged in so I started throwing down some tracks. It was a particular effect called AG Reverb which I really liked.

I must attribute some inspiration to Bach as well, especially Toccata and Fugue which I’m happily studying.

I knew we could improve on the original recording we made back then. So it was fun a challenge to record, produce and film this song for Brian. There’s a famous singer cameo in this song as well too, Kinny, an amazing artist. Check her out on youtube.

Tension and comedy, that’s what!! The story joins “Old Man Teacher” who knocks on James’ door. After the two face off, will there be forgiveness in the end? This is a little song I whipped up some time ago reflecting my high school Continue reading “The High School Blues – James Purdie”

The World Stops – Brad Hampton

The Worlds Stops by Brad Hampton 

Here’s another sweet video we did for Kamloops recording artist Brad Hampton back in 2010.  Here once again I teamed up with Curtis Good for an excellent script, which really speaks for itself.  This is a very powerful song which we felt ought to be in film! So we did it!  I’m surprised Brad hasn’t already shot to stardom with this amazing song.  Here’s the lyrics and the story behind the song in Brad’s own words: Continue reading “The World Stops – Brad Hampton”
