Having recorded a new solo project all by himself, and wanting to promote it with a performance music video, Chris Henry was faced with an interesting challenge.
He couldn’t do the typical band-out-in-field concept, since he had played all the instruments and sung all the vocals. That wouldn’t make for much of a wide shot.
So he went down to the creek, and shot himself singing and playing all the instruments.
Here’s his video for Nothing Left But The Blues from his Making My Way To You album.
One minor caveat… Jason Carter had played the fiddle break on this one, one of only two guest spots on the record, but Chris does a fine job aping that break for the video.
Henry is offering Making My Way To You as a free download through Noisetrade, though tips are accepted if you like the music.
