Hank, Pattie & The Current is a brand new group from Raleigh, NC making some waves through the southeastern bluegrass music scene.
Today they’re proud to premier their first music video, Losing My Mind.
Banjoist Hank Smith, known for his Béla Fleck and the Flecktones tribute band among other successful musical ventures, teamed up with fiddler Patty Hopkins-Kinlaw this past fall to explore their creative ideas within the bluegrass, jazz, celtic, and folk styles. The group is rounded out by bassist Scott Warren, and Ben Parker and Robert Thornhill on mandolin and guitar who also bring their distinctive duo singing style.
Hank and Pattie shared these thoughts…
“Directed by Gabriel Nelson, edited by Carter Reedy, and shot on an undisclosed location in Raleigh, NC, the video for Losing My Mind captures the slip we all feel sometimes that can lead to a downward spiral. While this song seems depressing or may hint at negativity, it’s actually a story of getting away from that mindset, or ‘breaking the spell’ and finding release, redemption and rebirth. The location captures the essence of something once vibrant, but now in decay and the band leads the way back into the light.”
