hi everyone , firstly i just want to say a massive thank you to everyone who watched , liked and shared the video we put up last week . apparently it was trending on youtube !!!! absolutely amazing (if you missed it then just search “passenger angel from montgomery” )
here is the second video from our north american tour . we filmed this one in PHILADELPHIA .
we thought for a while about which song we should cover as there are so many amazing bands and artists from around this part of the country . we talked about doing a springsteen song but i think as i’ve covered him so many times before i was keen to try to do something else ……
the one we chose is just beautiful . it was originally sung by Mark Knopflerand James Taylor and its a song that tells the story of two surveyors coming over from england to america in the 1700’s . (they went on to establish the border between pennsylvania and maryland , delaware and virginia which is now commonly known as the mason dixon line …. thanks wikipedia haha )
on a personal level – i fell in love with this song when it came out fifteen years ago . we used to sit in my friends bedroom for hours just playing this album and particularly this song over and over again . whenever i hear it now it takes me back there instantly . please do check out the original if you haven’t heard it as i think its a bit magical ….
we filmed this around the city and performed it in the Electric Factory (thank you to the staff there for being so quiet …. think we pissed everyone off …..wooops )
if you like it then please do us a huge favour and share it around . we really do appreciate it .
massive thanks to brian dos reis , simon kemp , russ matterson , james scott , chris vallejo , Stu Larsen , The Once , thomas stein and dan medland for coming together and making this possible . i love you all x
