‘I Won’t Let You Down (When)’

July 7th, 2020

Created over the course of the quarantine months, we launch a video and release a song to raise money for Direct Relief, which is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations, and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide personal protective equipment and essential medical items to health workers responding to Covid-19. It was an honor to collaborate with such incredible musicians on this project, recorded in 11 different locations. Produced by Grammy-nominated producer and composer Scott Healy, ‘I Won’t Let You Down’ was written by Max Gabriel /aka Gabriel Judet-Weinshel on vocals and keyboard, and features Curt Bisquera on drums, Bakithi Kumalo on bass, Tariqh Akoni on guitars, Grace Kelly on saxophone, Ben Carroll on vocals, Park Stickney on harp, Angella and Maria Ahn of The Ahn Trio on violin and cello, Tim Keiper on percussion, Aileen Payumo on vocals, and Michael Flannery on vocals, snaps, and mix.

Ben Harper, and bright rays of light

May 13th, 2020

What an honor to co-direct (with the hugely talented Kristin Sudeikis) a music video for the legendary Ben Harper. The video was created during the global pandemic, and the lyrics—written before the pandemic—are eerily prescient of the time we’re all living through. Making this with Ben was a real bright ray of light in a dark time. Watch the video here.
