"I Need You Now" Music Video Shoot

Of all the tracks on my latest release It Took Five Years but Now We're Doing Fine, the most successful track by far on the web and from listener feedback is the song "I Need You Now".  Perhaps it's because my song coincidentally shares it's name with  the cross-over country pop single that airs incessantly on your local top 40 radio station. But more than likely, it is the charming voice of my lovely wife Meagan, who debuts on this duet, that has captured the hearts of my central Florida listeners.

That being the case, "I Need You Now" was the natural choice for the music video shoot that was organized as an extra curricular project for the digital video students from Seminole State College in Heathrow, FL.  Thanks to Dan Walker and his students for offering to help me out!  We really had a great time and I can't wait to see the finished product!

The shoot was filmed at our very own downtown Lake Mary.  We filmed a few shots of Meagan and I acting out our little marital squabble that is depicted in the song. Then we did a few takes of us performing the song live.  It's in the creative hands of the SSC students now!  And rest assured that I will share my first official music video with you as soon as I can.

Be sure to put your name on my email list so that you get all the latest news!

Deltona Coffee House

The Deltona Arts & Historic Center, where I teach guitar and voice lessons, has just started hosting live events every Saturday night as part of what they call the Deltona Coffee House. "Good for them" for trying to bring some arts into the creative wasteland of Deltona, FL!

But, bad for them for misspelling my name on the April 2nd Grand Opening Songwriter's Showcase flyer. That featured artist there at the bottom "Tom Martin".....that's supposed to be me.

Check out my Calendar page for a list of my upcoming performances.
