This video was WAY more work than I had originally anticipated. I mixed this myself. I know, it sounds simple. It's not—not if you're a perfectionist. I am a perfectionist. Which doesn't mean I got it perfect; it means I begrudgingly stopped working on it and that I read two books on the subject and that I spent 2 months working on it obsessively and that I did about 46 mixes of it. I will never be happy with what I did here, I fear (in the mixing department).
I AM thrilled about all the people who helped me to make this and I am thrilled that a song like this came out of me. It is one of the most popular tunes I have ever written.
4th Street Productions in Long Beach filmed the video. I can not thank you enough Damian. You are truly an artist. It was filmed live as we tracked the song live.
I am thrilled that I performed this with three other musicians who I feel are some of the best players on the planet: Frank Reina. Brad Cummings, and Tom Bremer. You guys are my musical brothers. Also, thank you to Ryan Lipman for mastering this mix of mine.
