Good morning, good afternoon or good evening, depending on when you’re reading this. It's been a while since we last hit you up and I hope, like me, your still chasin' AMY.
Nearly one year ago to date, I was on a magical, vibrant and expansive equestrian farm shooting the video for "Shut the Gate," the leading single off Good Morning Amy. In May, Director Dominic Luongo and I collaborated on the simple, sleek and special-effects driven "Just Doin' It" video, which is climbing to 500k views on YouTube. Over the last few weeks we've been workin' hard to bring you what we've dubbed a Long Form Video for the album's third single, "Run."
The visual treatment for "Run" is unlike any we've done thus far. Characters, sub-plots and time sequences develop organically in this video, which features many new talents, faces and locations both in and outside of Buffalo. It explores the deeper, darker side of Billy Drease as he goes through a physical transformation, experiencing love, pain, loss, recovery and renewal.
"Run," produced by long-time friend and collaborator Trevor "TrevThorne" Drayton, is available on iTunes today. Check out a sneak peak of the video now and look for the extended feature to drop soon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v-cuxOVmSPk .
Billy Drease Williams' Good Morning Amy, featuring the YouTube smash hit "Just Doin' It", is now available. Pick up the CD from Amazon or download the MP3s from iTunes today!
