As some of you may or may not know that on top of running Musicgoat, I am also a musician myself. Last May I had an video idea for my tune “Minnesota Got Colder.” I figured that you guys might be interested in checking it out and maybe even providing some feedback.
Since the song is about remembering and since Memorial Day was on its way, I shot out an email to everyone on my email list and on the official Corey Koehler Facebook Fanpage offering friends and fans the opportunity to take part in the process. I ask them to send in pictures of deceased loved ones that they would like to memorialize.
Along with a good response , I had the help of my sister, her video camera, her Mac and the gorgeous scenery surrounding where I live (Winona, MN).
Check It Out
It was our first shot at making a video but I think that my sister and I did alright. What do you think?
If you are wondering why I embedded from Facebook its because it is a higher quality version than the one I posted on YouTube. We didn't really know what we were doing at first and we had to convert it to a format suitable for YouTube. And since I was in a hurry – because I slacked a little early on and had to press to get it out before the end of Memorial Day – I didn't pay attention to the obvious lack of quality (see for yourself on the YouTube version).
Anyway, hope you enjoy it. Oh, and I almost forgot (Duh! still getting used to this promotion thing lol), if you like the tune you can pick it up on my BandCamp page , iTunes, Amazon or CDbaby (i'm everywhere).
HEY! Let's be friends! Hook up with me on my YouTube Channel, on my Facebook FanPage or on my official site, PlanetCorey.com.
Wow, I didn’t expect the quality to be that different.
So you know, I’m at my Mother’s house and have the video playing. She recognized at and said “That song gets me every time…” Thank you for including my Grandmother.
Yeah, i wish i could redo it on YouTube without losing all my views and comments but oh well. And it was my pleasure including your grandmother. That is what it is all about!
