hello everyone !!
hope you’ve all had a great weekend ?
here is the new video and something a little different for you this time ….. its so much fun doing these songs with the band but i thought for this one i’d strip it back to just me and a guitar 🙂
its one of my favourite Yusuf / Cat Stevens songs called “the wind” . its only a couple of minutes long but just has the most beautiful melody and guitar part …. hope you guys enjoy it !!
we shot it in a lovely old lighthouse in PLYMOUTH . such a nice little spot (although interesting getting all of the sound and video equipment up there ….)
as ever , a huge thanks to Bryan Dos Reis for consistently shooting these videos so beautifully and also to simon and chris for their patience and audio expertise x
please , if you enjoy the video then do us a massive favour and share it with your fwends 🙂
this video is for luke and amelia x
