In Their Words: “We’ve been in Nashville about 10 years now, but all came up in Alabama — the outskirts of Birmingham mainly. When we moved we all made the jump together. We were staying in a band house to cut cost of rent & be able to tour more, so naturally we moved into a house all together in Nashville. Our dear friend, Joshua Shoemaker, who grew up with us in those Birmingham outskirts, also lived in those houses & made that jump with us as well. He pushed us to make the move as he was expanding his career as a filmmaker. We had our friends’ bands come stay with us at our house. Banditos would play shows with them. Joshua would film videos. It was simpatico.
Long story long we adore this man & he does incredible work. He’s done several live videos with us over the years, but never a narrative. It’s always been a dream to make it happen & I think the excitement shines through. We had an amazing team, hired some really star actors from Facebook & it turned out beautifully. The song itself kind of throws back to our Birmingham days where we’d be at a bar & you’d see the lonely & ornery drink themselves dry at the end of the table. This one is about finding hope in those dark places & letting yourself love yourself despite life’s circumstances.” — Mary Beth Richardson, Banditos
