Monday Music Discovery for Jan 22, 2018
Welcome to the Monday Music Discovery playlist. On Mondays, when applicable, I’ll feature a mixtape of both new music video videos and singles of all genres of music by local bands in Oklahoma. If you’re interested in having your music video or new single highlighted, connect here.
She Had It All by Weston Horn & The Hush
Artist Statement: Weston Horn & The Hush is an eight-piece band with a four-piece killer horn section. Their single, “She Had It All” off their 2017 album “Vol 1.” has caught some additional attention with a new music video debuting in 2018. The Hush is known for their high energy and unforgettable live shows and they set out to capture that energy in their third music video. The video was filmed at five different shows throughout 2017, including footage from Rocklahoma, Mayfest, and The Cain’s Ballroom. We had Dante Schmitz & Nick Whitaker with Bound for Glory Productions shoot most of the footage and edit the video along with Adam Acosta providing additional footage.
Weston Horn & The Hush, nicknamed, “The Foo’s Brothers” for their Foo Fighter type rock and roll with the old school Blues Brothers horn section, takes a lot of pride in providing an interactive experience instead of just a concert. Their high energy shows are a must see as their big band sound and choreography will have you dancing and singing along in no time. They are looking forward to announcing big things coming in 2018. You can follow along by checking out their website or by liking or following them on Facebook.
Feeling Good by Original Flow
Aritst Statement: Before “Feeling Good” was an idea, it was a state of mind I tried to find in myself. I had just came out of the most emotionally draining relationship ever in my life. It took a toll not only physically and mentally but also spiritually. At the time I resented myself and was in a really dark place. All was not lost though. I remember it like it was yesterday, my car was acting up so I I ask my dad to take a look at it. I started to tell him everything I’ve been feeling and we talked for awhile outside by my car. It changed my whole perspective on life.
After months of depression and resenting myself I finally found comfort. Talking with my dad helped me in many ways that day. I headed to my room and the first I said where “damn it I’m feeling good!”. I started writing more and more. I felt my depression leave my body with every line I wrote. “Lovely cuz my lungs still pushin'”. It became my personal anthem of positivity.
The music video was a bit of a challenge. It was my second video ever. I knew I wanted to show people finding their own light in their darkest moments. I wanted to be that beacon. We started filming early that morning with a rough concept of what we wanted to do. Tons of supporters and artist showed up for the video and we had a lot of fun even though it was almost 100 degrees outside. I was thankful to have my supporters, and friends surrounding me. I knew at that moment I can change people’s suffering like my own to something good. No something great.
