VIDEO PREMIERE IN NO DEPRESSION

"We all need a little twang, its good medicine for the soul...and hell, everyone needs a good upbeat ditty about being on the right path and possibly needing just a smidgen of validation to that end, especially on a Monday morning. The song emits positivity in melody where the lyrical content is everything but, and that is art, my friends." - No Depression

No Depression premiered our video for Blake Rainey & His Demons' "Losing My Way" last week, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Shot among the blooming cotton in Polk County, Georgia (near Rainey's hometown of Cedartown), it's a melancholy, meandering, catchy tune underpinned by "driving rhythm and killer bee back beat," that reminded the reviewer of "the opening lick and backbeat of Waylon Jennings' quintessential "Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way."

We'll take it. Thanks, No Depression!

blake rainey jams in the van

A while back, The Jam in the Van crew stopped by the (sadly now defunct) Thunderbox Studios and recorded some farewell-to-everyone's-practice-space tunes by ATL players. Blake performed a couple, and this video is a favorite.
