Hello Laptop Sessions music video blog viewers! It’s been quite a while, but it’s officially time to get back to the music. And I start with a major release: that’s right, it’s the music video for the lead track off of my new album, “The Easy Ways”, entitled, “The Easy Way”!
The video features the actual track you’ll hear on the album, plus visuals of some of the guitars in my growing guitar collection. Those that have seen my videos are probably wondering why I chose my Seagull acoustic for this music video instead of my Martin. Well, I actually wrote the song when I first got the Seagull and wanted to feature it in the video for the song, too. “The Easy Way” is also the only track on the album that has the Seagull acoustic on it, so that’s a bit of Jim Fusco Trivia for you!
“The Easy Ways” (the plural is the album title) is an ambitious album of 16 tracks where all the songs run together. Various musical and thematic elements are intertwined throughout- the album is meant to be listened-to as a whole. That’s not to say there aren’t some catchy “single-worthy” songs (like this one) to grab your interest! I think I’ve finally achieved the good balance of serious, fun, happy, sad, fast, and slow over a full 55-minute album. I can’t wait to release it and blow some minds.
Okay, enough talk- let’s get to the music! Enjoy the music video for “The Easy Way”- I hope you’ll share it and comment on it.
