Oh yeah! We’re really happy with the result. It’s available everywhere right now:
With its dreamy Rhodes intro, bluesy, gritty vocal, porch stomp, piano clunks, workman chant, marching snares and jazz-bar sax, there’s plenty of damn good earthiness going on in the Rich Webb Band’s new single ‘Stray Horse Canyon’.
Video producer Simon Holt and his team caught all of this and more in this cracking video filmed at the Antique Bar in Melbourne earlier this year, capturing the mood and essence of the song to perfection.
Hats off to the cast too, for stellar performances all round.
The track was recorded in Germany on the band’s last European tour and mixed by BAFTA-winning, Grammy-nominated sound ace Howard Bargroff – it’s the first taster from a new album out later this year.
Stray Horse Canyon is available now on all digital channels — buy from iTunes here.
