Music Video Monday: Tony Maynard


Today's Music Video Monday hits the road.


As many of us prepare to go to grandma's house for Thanksgiving, the video for Tony Maynard's melancholy new song "Makes Us Blue" is all about the highs and lows of travel. "It's about missing home," says Maynard, who directed the video. "But also missing the road when you're there. Its primarily iPhone footage from a train trip to Chicago and a road trip to Austin. There are also still images meant to appear as reflecting off the train window from my family, friends and folks I have traveled with or met on the road. The song is an original recorded by Harry Koniditsiotis and was recorded at his studio 5 and Dime. Tony Manard (Me) on guitar and vocals, my son Vincent on bass and electric piano, Joe Hopkins on 12 string guitar and the prolific Stephen Chopek on drums."
