The Girl (1 of 3)_ City & Colour Cover

A few months ago I had an idea to shoot three videos that showed three different perspectives and visual interpretations of the City & Colour song ‘The Girl’ that I covered on the mixtape Love & Other Struggles. The video is directed by Nabil Shash. The first time I heard this song it was sung by my friend Julian Caspari, a director at Schools Without Borders. He sang it for his then girlfriend, now fiance, Courtney at a retreat we went on in West Virginia (ya.. I’ve been to West Virginia). I appreciated the words to the song and it’s sentiment, found the song and played it consistently for weeks. When I was finishing the recording of Love & Other Struggles I realized that ‘The Girl’ was committed to memory and recorded it one day acapella. I later decided to put it on the mixtape. This video and the two that come after it will be the last visuals that I release from the mixtape before heading into album material (digital release date: Oct 7). Special thanks to Rakhi Mutta and her parents (Baldev {the ED of Punjabi Community Health Services} and Harjeet) for supporting the vision by letting mr. Nabil Shash (the director) into their home and Dallas Green for writing a beautiful song.
