I discovered my passion for fusing words/story with music and the power of visual imagery during production of my first music video, “The Rose (Surrender Version)“. I worked with local actors to enact scenes from True Surrender showing Major Aaron Bricewick’s personal journey after being held hostage by Afghanistan terrorists.
“Cool Rider” is a biker-themed rock-n-roll remake of the song from the 1982 film, Grease 2. For this song, I played multiple roles a actor, producer and even video editor.
The energy of taiko is raw and powerful, and I wanted to harness that – along with dramatic movement – to communicate emotion and tell a story. “Taiko True” is that story.
