OXFIST “THE GHOST OF GUS GRISSOM” (MUSIC VIDEO)
The music video for “The Ghost of Gus Grissom” speaks to the former astronaut’s final hours, alongside his fellow Apollo I space crew. Given the fact that the song was originally described as a “funeral dirge for cyborgs,” it made sense to pay homage to someone in the early days of the space program, especially one who was so mechanically adept.
MIDWAY IN WAKE “YOUR MAJESTY” (LYRIC VIDEO)
Using footage from the San Francisco earthquake of 1906, chosen by Greg Reynaud (aka Midway In Wake), I created this lyric video for the song “Your Majesty,” which follows the lyrical themes of the track, which is about a soldier who’s been dispatched to a catastrophe to provide information about what took place.

MIDWAY IN WAKE “THEY’LL COME FOR US” (Lyric Video)
Using footage selected and sync’d by Greg Reynaud (aka Midway In Wake), I made this lyric video for the song “They’ll Come For Us,” which is the first single of his second record — a concept album entitled, “Heirs To The Storm.”
With a bit of editing and re-organization, the visuals from this piece of public domain footage sync’d up nearly perfectly with the song’s lyrical and instrumental content. Lyrics like “I was wasted on floor” take on a new meaning when juxtaposed against footage of women assembling 50mm shells in factories.
SECOND LETTER “RUINS” (ALBUM ART)
The final artwork for Second Letter‘s “Ruins” gives a nod to the famous Audre Lorde’s quote, “The master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house.”
SECOND LETTER “RUINS” (TRAILER)
The trailer for Second Letter‘s “Ruins” takes a tounge-in-cheek approach to marketing downloads in a streaming world, reminding folks that there is no ownership attached to Spotify playlist.
