New Release: Drones

Today marks the release of my new track Drones through Turnstile Music.  Whilst I was finishing writing the track I had some ideas of how I wanted the video to look.  Those ideas developed, and I kept feeding them until it grew into something coherent.

So then, I decided to take the role of being a director in the video.  I had such strong feelings and thoughts about how the video should appear, it was the only logical step.  Drones is the first ever music video I have directed, and it was certainly a challenge.  Without the help and support of Jason Baker it would have not been possible at all.  Jason, Mandi and Flavien were a great team to work with and I owe them a lot for helping me bring my vision to life.

It brings me so much pleasure to release this track and video out into the world!!
