In the lead up to the benefit for Luella & The Sun on August 2nd, we are one of the lucky sponsors to be premiering the video for their newest single, “I Got Soul”. The video was recorded live a few weeks after the June 8th, 2013 fire that destroyed the studio (Wow & Flutter) and half the home of guitarist Joe McMahan. This was where Joe and Luella lived, where the band developed their sound, and where they recorded their two-song 10″ vinyl debut. In order to shoot the video, Director Michael Trebing (Cage Free Visual) and the band (Joe, Luella, bassist Adam Bednarik and drummer Jon Radford) rented generators and lights to film in the powerless, charred, soot-filled space. Mixer/Producer Tchad Blake (Black Keys, Tom Waits) lent his talents to mix the live recording.
We have the video and more information about the benefit after the jump. Do some good for some good Nashvillians, and come out to support with us!
