In November I spent a weekend in the studio recording demos of my new songs. My intention was to keep the recordings to myself, and use them to help me decide which songs I should include on my next album. After my first listen I fell in love with “White Flag”, and knew that I wanted to forego my plan and share it instead. It was recorded in just a few takes and it isn’t mixed or mastered. It’s in the raw and I think that’s why I love it so much.
Shortly after my recording session I started talking with my good friend Adrian Centoni about filming a video together. Lemolo has played shows with Adrian’s band, Colonies, over the years and I knew he would be a treat to work with. The timing seemed perfect to record a video to my demo of “White Flag”, and as soon as he explained his vision for the project I was in. We took a trip to Mt. Rainier National Park, and we spent the day galavanting in the snow and exploring narrow forest roads. A special thank you to Adrian Centoni and Terence Ankeny for withstanding the cold so this video could happen.
I hope you enjoy this video for my solo version of “White Flag”, filmed and directed by Adrian Centoni.
