Videopremiär: Chip Taylor - Whisper Amen
Chip Taylors nya video »Whisper Amen« bygger på avslutningsspåret på nya plattan »A Song I Can Live With«.
Chip berättar: »This song felt sort of magical to me. It sort of wrote itself – and in a very short period of time – 15 or 20 minutes. Toward the end, it told one of the most beautiful stories I know. My wife Joan’s little jewelry store went bankrupt not too long ago. She has time on her hands now. She and a few of her friends decided to donate some time each week to help youngsters who are lacking in certain skills – mostly reading. Joan is one of those people who never thinks of herself. She always thinks of the other person. Now she’s doing it for a few kids. I love to hear her stories after her sessions. She has such a beautiful sparkle in her eyes when she speaks of the kids. At her first session she thought the reading wasn’t quite connecting with the little girl, so she started playing “hangman” – the spelling/word game – and the child’s eyes lit up, as did Joan’s. So hangman is part of all Joan’s sessions now… and that story is a beautiful part of this final song.«
Chp berättar vidare om videon: »Four-time Juno winner, Jeth Weinrich, has done wonderful videos for several of my songs, including this one. Jeth has a beautiful and unique way of connecting his heart, through his film collages, to the emotion of my songs. With «Whisper Amen,» I love the way the lyrics seem to be enhanced by the simple, magical journey he has created here. I get chills watching this… it is so beautiful! Thanks Jeth!«
