The Year Of The Beard!

Published March 4, 2014 08:49:01

NEW VIDEO! My first For Reals Music Video-type video! This song's an oldie but a goodie, called "The Year Of The Beard," written for my (exceptionally beardly) friend Atom Moore's birthday a couple years ago. He and Mikey Neumann helped me shoot this video during JoCo Cruise Crazy IV, and we enlisted the help of dozens of bearded individuals – who not only lent us use of their beards, but also sorted themselves into groups by beard shape, and then sorted themselves by height within the beard shape groups. Geeks! They are the best! The end result is something that I am super proud of, because not only does it look pretty good, but I got to work with a lot of new and old friends and we had a great heap of fun making it. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

I think there's a great disparity between the number of love songs out there, and the number of songs about literally anything else, so I strive to fill in that gap with just my ukulele and my wits.
