Published Jul 15, 2016Saskatchewan rocker Jordan Welbourne recently unleashed a new EP titled Reach Out, and now he's delivered some matching visuals for "Rattlesnake Jake" off of that same release.
The video marks the musician's first, and he wanted it to serve as an introduction to his live performance style. To capture his emotional delivery and chemistry with bandmates Jesse Dawson and Nathan Abramyk, Welbourne enlisted Bryn Becker to direct the clip.
"Jordan is a rock'n'roll badass and consummate showman," Becker tells Exclaim! "We shot a few takes of the song to get all the footage we need, and energy levels on stage, and in the crowd, actually ratcheted up each time. That's really impressive. We captured Jordan at his finest. When he lets the music pour out of him, you can see the passion in his face, you feel it in his vocals and from his guitar. The band gels beside him and behind him, and you can see in the video how tightly they come together to create one big sound. It's real energy, and it's a hell of a ride."
