"I visited colorado for the first time in the fall of 2017, and like most people, was struck by its unique and stunning landscape. The idea of shooting a music video in Fort Collins, CO came up when I met with the folks at The Music District a local organization in Ft Collins that helps facilitate the growth of musicians, whether they are local or traveling through. They have a residency program, where out-of-town artists can come and work on a project with them. We brought up the idea of working on a music video incorporating the Fort Collins/ colorado landscape. They hadn’t done a project like that before and took a chance on trying something new. They helped connect us to local videographers and we started brainstorming ideas, which eventually turned into this video shoot in August of 2018.
The song I chose to make the video for is the title track of my new album Hold to the Light. I wanted to draw from the visual aspects of the lyrics and play with different forms of light. The videographers I worked with on this project, EvrGlo Media, really embraced the idea of trying a bunch of things out to see how they would look. We even decided on trying to shoot the Fort Collins sunrise. So, I got up at 4:30 in the morning & drove up to Horsetooth Reservoir, which you will see a lot of in the video. Just in the nick of time, we caught the most amazing sunrise… I mean it was absolutely perfect. I have to say, I haven’t seen many sunrises in my life, so this was pretty special, and to get it on camera was even better. It fit the mood and vibe of the song perfectly."
