“Outside” is the latest video from David Bronson’s Story
NYC-based singer-songwriter David Bronson continues to add visuals to his Story album with the release of the record’s sixth video. “I knew I wanted to work with Johnerick as soon as I met him,” Bronson says of artist and animator, Johnerick Lawson (http://johnerick.com) and Lawson’s video for Bronson’s song “Outside,” which has premiered via Baeble Music here. Johnerick’s work, an innovative mixture of 2-D and 3-D animation techniques, has an aspect of “inner-ness,” according to Bronson, that suited the songs themes of personal reflection.
For the clip, Bronson provided Johnerick with some rough notes and general visual motifs from the album. “I was very much hoping he would just interpret, and kind of run free with it. I’m really thankful for how much effort he put into it, and what an amazing piece of art it is. ‘Outside’ is very hopeful,” Bronson says. “At the bottom of it, it’s a fundamental statement about being OK.”
“Outside” appears on Bronson’s latest album Story, one half of a two-album cycle of personal songs that brings to mind the 70’s heyday of artists such as Cat Stevens. The Long Lost, the follow-up to Story is currently being completed with producer Godfrey Diamond who has previously worked with Lou Reed, Sparks, and Glen Campbell among others. The album is scheduled for release on September 10th, 2013 and Bronson will celebrate with a record release show at Brooklyn Bowl on September 21st. Tickets for the event (opening for Addison Groove Project) are available here. Everyone in attendance will receive a free copy of The Long Lost.
In addition to his solo work, Bronson also composes instrumental, ambient soundscapes for filmmaker Jennifer Elster’s “In The Woods,” which is the first installment of Elster’s film series entitled “The Being Experience.” The project is an unflinching look at existence, featuring a cast of actors, thinkers, and musicians including Dave Matthews, Moby, Questlove, Rufus Wainwright, and Yoko Ono among many others.
