We made a music video!

I have been waiting (im)patiently for an eternity to share some fun news-
We made a music video!

I love the song and it was a real treat to work with my friend
Josh Sundby
He did ALLLLL of the hard work (animation.)

Read all about it via Americana UK:
"Hicks says of the video: “John and I have long admired Jennifer Davis’s distinctive palette and her soulful blend of realism and fantasy, and we’re thrilled with the world she and Joshua have imagined for ‘Only Smoke.’ I originally wrote the song as a sort of dialogue between four characters, and to my ears John’s vocal interpretation preserves that conversation while creating a compelling composite character. Jennifer and Joshua have further transformed and enriched the song and its narrator(s). We’re honoured to have prodded their beautiful collaboration.”
