JULIE DOESN'T JUST WRITE GREAT SONGS, SHE'S GOT MANY, MANY STORIES UP HER SLEEVE -- WE MADE A VIDEO FOR ONE OF THEM
Grammy-winning songwriter Julie Gold can't turn every experience into songs -- some become stories, and this is one of them. Both being working musicians who can't work for you right now, she asked me to work with her to turn this story into a video. It's a true story called, "Saxophone." Within the story is a visual series of 'shout outs' to some of her favorite instrumentalists. At the very end of the video they are listed in a credit crawl, in case you don't recognize all of them.
“Saxophone” written and read aloud by Julie Gold 5:11 in length
It goes live at 4 AM Eastern on Facebook, so I'm typing this in the middle of the night so you get it a couple minutes early
I hope you are staying healthy, taking proper precautions, and maintaining a good attitude. If you don't maintain a good attitude Julie has offered to come to your house and play solo sax to snap you out of it.
