June 5, 2009 Hey Everyone!
I just wanted to let you all know that the brand new music video for "Firefly" is premiering at hearitfirst.com! "Firefly" is a fun quirky celebration song that I wrote about my bride, Kelly. About a month or so ago, we decided to move the song from the recording studio to the video screen, so we brought Chris Corrado in as director. Chris was assistant director on films like the latest Indiana Jones and Charlie Wilson's War. He currently works on the new NBC series "Life". The shoot went phenomenal and I am so grateful to the cast and crew that helped on it.
The entire video was shot in LA in this very vibey coffee shop. I was excited to have the video take place there because in a way, it was reminiscent of my roots. As some of you know, my earliest shows were in coffee houses and bars near my college campus. So, there was a bit on nostalgia for me to do this shoot where we did.
Some might be wondering, "Since this song is about your wife, is she in the video?" Yes! Kelly does make a surprise cameo appearance on screen, but only the savvy will spot her.
So, without further ado, click here and watch the video, and let me know what you think of it! Send me a message through Myspace or through Twitter. I'm so excited for you all to see it!
Yours and His, Jimmy & Kelly Needham
