It’s here! The release of the Babylon video in support of Take These Days. We have accomplished so much over the last year or two, from touring to breaking world records, national television placements, new EPs television appearances, SXSW, and so much more. The day I signed with an agent, was picked up by management, and signed a publishing deals were all huge days for me personally in terms of me accomplishing a goal, but shooting this video really beats all of that. It was just a few weeks ago when folks drove hundreds of miles to be in this video just because they believed in us and our hard work. All of those accomplishments were personal goals that were met, but the video stood out to me because in that moment I realized how many people were actually a part of the journey WITH me and the Big Love Choir, so it isnt just about us, it was a chance for supporters to physically participate ….and they stepped up and did it, and it was fun. My bud’s Pat, Jordan, Ryan, and Rusty stood there for 8 hours and caught me jumping off stage. Others came and went, but they were there the whole time and I KNEW they wouldn’t drop me, and I had nothing to worry about. Thanks guys, because that really segways to the real point of all this.
The Spirit I refer to in the song is no more, no less than “that which connects us all” and friendship is a beautiful manifestation of that. The people coming and supporting and loving and watching, and buying, and traveling, and sharing,, and listening are all doing the same thing…they are my real world experience of the spirit picking me up and helping me squash my own fears, problems, and insecurities, and being the me that I was born to be…Thank you to you all, I literally would crumble without your support and I hope you enjoy this video as much as I do..
All my Big Love, Jonathan
