World-Wide Release "Heaven Mississippi"
Blues Music Magazine Music Video Premiere
featuring Bob Margolin
In 2013, my friend Terry Abrahamson wrote “Heaven Mississippi” and asked me to make a demo for B.B. King. Sadly, we realized that B.B. might not record again. I loved Terry’s song and changed his lyrics to reflect my life and experiences rather than B.B.’s. I recorded it for “My Road." It’s about…well, you’ll hear it and see it, but it scares me to say it.
Scott Rosenbaum and Jasin Cadic were bringing their exquisite film “Sidemen - The Long Road to Glory” to the Pinetop Perkins Workshops and showed it in June in Clarksdale. They conceived a video for "Heaven Mississippi" and we shot it in Clarksdale. I believe the video elevates my and Terry’s song way beyond the music and you will judge that for yourself.
The video was released world-wide by Blues Music Magazine this week. Thanks to publisher Jack Sullivan. Please ride My Road with me to “Heaven Mississippi.”
