If you follow my posts and podcasts here at Disinformation and elsewhere, you probably know that I’m also a musician in Nashville, TN. Here is the new video for my song “Paradise.” The song and the video both point back to the kind of counter-cultural posts you’re familiar with.
Conceived, directed and edited from public domain footage found at Archive.org, “Paradise” combines images of San Francisco in 1941 with shots from the city captured in 1968 during that era’s counter-cultural revolution. The video takes the song’s declarative chorus as a jumping-off point to celebrate the Utopian impulse that has defined that city.
Welcome to “Paradise”
“Paradise” appears on my CD BLUE TURNS BLACK.
