Vincent (Don McLean cover) 16 Jul 2017

hello everyone !!
hope you’ve all had a great week ?!
we’ve had a brilliant one – after the most phenomenal show at Kew The Music 2017 we went on to the iconic Montreux Jazz Festival in switzerland where we were lucky enough to share the stage with The Lumineers (such a good band !!!)
then last night we were in beautiful northern spain at Cap Roig Festival… three very different gigs but each of them incredible in their own way 🙂
a massive thanks to everyone that came along xxx
i also wanted to share one final sunday night video with you….
this is one of my all time favourite songs and in my eyes a total masterpiece . for this reason its a song i thought i would never cover as its one of the “untouchables” …. but i did …. sorry …. i hope i haven’t ruined it !!
its a slightly different approach to the previous cover songs ….
firstly , its just me and guitar this time as i felt like the lyrics and melody required as much space as possible . the video is also super simple . its just ariel footage of the lake district in northern england . i think with a song as perfect as this simplicity is the key ….
a huge thanks to Yousef Thami for capturing such stunning visuals .
remember , you can watch all of the “sunday night videos” here www.youtube.com/passengermusic and listen to all of the studio versions at https://Passenger.lnk.to/SundayNightSessionsFA
as i said , this will be the last one of the series . its been a wonderful project to work on . thank you all so much for your amazing feedback and for sharing the videos around . also a massive thanks to Jarrad Seng Photography and Bryan Dos Reis as well as my brilliant band and crew for making it all possible .
i’d like to dedicate this video to my good friend chris simmons and his family .
loads of love .
