In all transparency this video and song from Hezekiah Jones is via my record label Yer Bird Records. I, Sandy (or Smansmith as you may know me) from Slowcoustic, have been known to very sporadically post here on You Crazy Dreamers and I wanted to make sure to share this song/video!
The upcoming album from Hezekiah Jones is entitled “Have You Seen Our New Fort?” and will be released on March 29th, 2011. One of the songs that has hit me the hardest is the stunningly gorgeous track Lift the Shadow From This Heart. The song (accompanied by the video created by Morgan King below) is almost hauntingly recorded with a background of what has to be an old news program…almost as if the song is holding you fixated and you don’t knowing what is happening all around you. With the violin (from Kiley Ryan) soaring in and out of the delicate acoustics and vocals from Raphael Cutrufello, it creates the perfect sombre backing to the struggle outlined in the song. If I didn’t ‘have to’ recommend it, I would anyway. Enjoy.
