Shooting a new music video with Taylor Davis in L.A.

Last week, I headed to Los Angeles to film a music video with my friend, YouTube-violinist Taylor Davis . The duet will be a track on my upcoming video game album and I'm so excited for both to be released in a few weeks! 
 

I had a great time working with Taylor and the very talented videographer Landon Donoho. The studio we shot at is in the bustling L.A. fashion district.

The piano lid fell off!

However, just as we arrived, there was a little mishap with the baby grand piano we had rented: the movers hadn't taken off the lid from the piano, and when they set it down on the floor vertically, the lid fell open onto the floor and cracked the hinges that attached it to the piano... It was a pretty sad sight for a pianist!  

 

 

 

 

As this accident made filming with an open lid impossible, we had to resort to a closed lid, which thankfully worked out fine and we were able to shoot the video in an afternoon.
