    New video for US Election- Stormy Weather

    Originally written and recorded in the summer/fall of 2016.
    It was written taking a non partisan poke at our political parties and those who make a career out of it.

    Here we are in another national election
    cycle and I thought it would be fun to create a video since it is political in nature.
    Hope you enjoy, and PLEASE VOTE!!

    Promised myself I would touch nothing even slightly political on either side of this s**tshow, but I did listen and did enjoy the track, Richard Very very strong Genesis kind of groove. Well done!
    If you're actually reading this then chances are you already have my last album but if NOT and you're curious:

    Thanks so much John, you've made my morning.
    I really tried to stay neutral and focus on the humorous side of the process.
    I pretty much stay away from the news, blogs, FB political posts and talking heads.
    Images used, especially in the last section are not meant to place blame , but merely represent events of the times we're living in.

    The Stormy Weather part of it actually came about from an experience I had, and had nothing to do with politics.
    We were having one of those ferocious Florida thunderstorms one afternoon. We have an enclosed porch attached to our home and I opened the side door with the thought of going out and closing the screens. At that moment lightning struck somewhere near our home and I felt an impact, like a percussion bomb, hit me like nothing I've ever felt before.
    For some time I considered going to ER because my right side and arm still felt strange, but like a typical male, I decided to fight through it. lol
    Later that evening I went in to my studio and turned on my synths and started noodling bits, and the main melody came about rather quickly.
    So I named it Stormy Weather in honor of the experience I had earlier in the day.

    I appreciate your support beyond words my friend, thank you.
