WATCH: Julie Mintz, ‘The Reason’

Mar 23, 2016

WATCH: Julie Mintz, 'The Reason'

Artist: Julie Mintz
Hometown: Corpus Christi, TX
Song: "The Reason"
Album: The Thin Veil
Label: Manimal

In Their Words: "Love is so unreasonable that one person can be both our reason to have hope and, almost simultaneously, our reason to despair. So the song is an expression of the extremes to which love takes us. At least that’s how I’ve experienced love … maybe i’m doing it wrong!

Speaking of love (or lack thereof), I met the director/cinematographer of this music video under romantic pretenses. Although we never made it past our first date, a friendship and working relationship endured, and he shot this magical video for me on a horse ranch in Acton, California. The rider in the video is a seasoned rodeo cowboy who insisted on addressing me as 'ma’am' during the entire shoot (no matter how many times I asked him to call me Julie) which sort of made me feel old, but mostly made me long to move home to Texas and fall in love with a real-life cowboy." — Julie Mintz
