In Their Words: “I wrote ‘Shakin’ My Bones’ after a weekend trip to Joshua Tree. I was playing shows with a couple of my friends, and before the gig, suddenly we were in the middle of a big dust storm and we had to take cover. We were up in this very cool house on a hill and could see the glowing town lights though the dusty mist in the distance. It was moody and magical. It was my first trip to the California desert. It was peaceful and wild. I felt my emotions stirring and slowing down, connecting to the land and the spirit of the place. When I got home to my apartment in LA, I was feeling inspired and I stayed up all night and wrote ‘Shakin’ My Bones.’

“Shooting this video was one of those magical days. I could not shoot the video in the California desert as I am currently in New Zealand so we shot in the Nevis, in beautiful Central Otago, and captured the epic New Zealand desert vibes. It was quite a peaceful day, and a very natural and fun shoot. We were blessed with a beautiful blue sky and a gorgeous sunset. Like being in the desert in California, I felt my mood lift and that same peaceful feeling of being connected to the earth.

“Working with Raj [director/cinematographer Rajendra Patel] was so easy and such a pleasure and before we knew it, we were catching the twilight at 10:30 p.m. I was introduced to Raj through a friend in Queenstown and quickly made the shoot happen. My sister Katrina had told me about the Nevis and what a special place it is. We needed a four-wheel drive as it was a winding dirt road leading us into the valley. The scenery was mind-blowing, expansive and open with such a gorgeous golden light. It was the perfect place to shoot the video.” — Jackie Bristow
