"ICARUS" MUSIC VIDEO
I messaged Jeff Delgado (jdelgadoart.com) after finding his self-published comic at Krypton Comics in Omaha. I did not think he would get back to me. After all, he is pretty busy working as a full time comic book artist. I still remember looking at his e-mail response. He said he liked the song and before I knew it, I was headed to his studio to talk about the vision for the project. What makes him one of my all time favorite people to work with is that he is very personal and he really takes the time to get to know his clients. Once he felt he had everything he needed, he knew exactly what to do - no more meetings or questions. He just knocked it out of the park. He's an awesome dude and if you like the music video, check out his site. He does amazing things. Also big thanks to Krypton Comics for being so awesome and helping me out with the music video.
After the music video, I got in touch with some local rappers. The idea was to come up with a song that could help unite the Omaha community. Maybe do a local concert or something. Here's a video of that first day of collaborating.
Never got to a big show per se, but we did manage one performance together on a summer night. Funny thing about this show was that my name was not on the ticket, so the venue was not allowing me and my crew to set up or take the stage. B.A.M.M. and the WiseGuyz were listed, but not me. After some "magicery," I was able to get on stage with my acoustic guitar, perform, take a few pics with people afterwards, and get out of there before anyone at the venue knew the wiser. :)
Unfortunately, due to schedules, we were never able to make a studio recording of the remix. I had already said I was going to put one out at the time, so although I'm not a rapper, I went ahead and attempted my best flow. The video is a 'thank you' to all those who have encouraged and had a positive influence on me these past few years.
