Beautiful rich-toned visual storytelling Dan Kennedy – Backstory video critique

This entry is part 14 of 31 in the series Single, EP and Video reviews

Beautiful rich-toned visual storytelling Dan Kennedy – BACKSTORY VIDEO CRITIQUE:  I reviewed Dan’s excellent solo piano album, “Mountains Made of Shadow Anthems Made of Light“, a short time ago, and was highly impressed with his music on the album… what I didn’t know is that Dan was producing some videos to go along with the songs… the main keyword for this one is “beautiful”… as you’ll see when you watch it below, Dan is able to talk to you right through his keyboard – honestly and with a straightforward approach that few other pianists have… please watch it now:

Since you’re right there already, be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Dan’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find other wonderful audio and visual treats, too.

The weave of story scenes in with Dan’s heartfelt and emotional playing style is done masterfully by video director Alex Howe (acting is by Elijah Howe), bringing out feelings of (both) sorrow and joy for the viewer/listener.  Striking visuals all through the 5:09 film!

I have little doubt that the next time you’re walking along a river, or pacing through the pines, “Backstory” will be in the back of your mind… this video/song is (definitely) bound for awards.  Production values are extremely high, and Dan uses the music to tell the story with the kind of skill that only a professional can bring to the table.

I give Dan and his video crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this splendid visual creation!        Rotcod Zzaj
