In Their Words: "As time passes, you think more and more about the past — how it shaped you and how you shaped it. Sometimes, you miss things, people, and places. Sometimes, it’s as simple as voices, sounds, and smells. Almost always, it’s complex — the feelings all those pieces conjure up. 'I Keep It All Back There with You' is a song about wanting to go back, but not being sure of what you might find when you get there.
The video takes place in three of my favorite places in the world — the Jersey Shore, Brown’s Diner, and inside my 1974 Ford F100. As a child in the '60s, I spent many summers at my grandparents' house in Beach Haven West, New Jersey. The juxtaposition of the new and old footage helps tell the story of 'I Keep It All Back There with You.' I continue to visit the Jersey Shore as often as I can. I find being there, and by the ocean, inspiring." — Bob Delevante
