I’ve been a fan of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club for a long time. Their first album was on heavy rotation when I was in college back in Tennessee. So getting to work with them on a video project felt like coming full circle.
For this project, we wanted to make a fun music video that highlighted the band rehearsing with JBL speakers, Martin lights and AKG microphones.
Something you might not know: We put this video project on hold for nearly a year. BRMC’s drummer, Leah Shapiro, was undergoing surgery in 2015 for Chiari Malformations. These are structural defects in the brain that altered her sense of balance and coordination, making it very difficult to play drums. It was great to see her fully recovered and holding her own with the rest of the band.
Special thanks to Brandon from Martin for the stage lighting!
