Video for Ask You to Leave

Both at my day job and in my personal life, I'm fortunate to know several super-talented filmmakers and videographers.

When I first started putting the record together I thought it'd be great to have some music videos to go with it. The seven songs I chose are all pretty image-heavy from a lyrical standpoint, and Dima's brilliant cover art speaks for itself, so I guess I wanted to see how far I could push everything visually.

I was a little skeptical about asking folks to work for next to nothing, but it turns out I shouldn't have been. I was blown away by the positive response, and had no trouble finding friends who were as excited as I was about the idea of bringing the songs to life. The only criteria I had for the videos were 1) do whatever you want, and 2) I don’t want to be in the things.

So here it is -- the first of what'll hopefully be a seven-song video series -- Ben Siler and Douglas Sims's video for "Ask You to Leave."

Look for more in the coming weeks and months. (And please buy the record!)
