Guitarist and songwriter David Harris talking about the new video, “For our video “Breathe” we worked with Mason Wright. He really captured the energy of what we do live & was right in the action with his camera. The visuals of the light & dark really capture the vibe of the song.”

“Of all the videos I have done throughout my music career, I have to say “Breathe” was definitely the most exciting and fun. This was my 4th time working with director Mason Wright who really captured what we were going for. I couldn’t be more grateful for David, Pete, Shon and Carl. Our producer Mike Gillies (Metmixer) crushed it on this song as well! It’s a winning combination!” Stacey David Blades.
