This new video was SO incredibly fun to put together!
As some of you may know, I released a song titled “Hobbit Drinking Medley” on my most recent album – “Misty Mountains: Songs Inspired by the Hobbit and Lord Of The Rings”. Per popular request and after hundreds of hours of preparation, today we finally released the music video for this song! I know a lot of you have been waiting for this video ever since the song was released on Misty Mountains, so I appreciate your patience. I hope that you’ll find the video was worth the wait! 😀 It has been a long time coming!
In case you don’t already know, I am the HUGEST Game of Thrones fan. As in “get together with friends every Sunday and watch and obsess about the every detail of the show” type of fan. I can’t believe that this season is already over and that series is soon coming to a close. Winter is coming!
WE LAVA YOU! This was so fun to put together for you!
Believe it or not, we shot this in Eugene, Oregon even though it looks like it’s shot in Hawaii. We were going to shoot it out on the Oregon coast, but the weather was inconsistent and so we ended up shooting it two days before we released the video at a pool in Eugene, Oregon! We opted instead to look for a lake and that didn’t turn out the way we’d hoped. So, I put out a bunch of feelers on Facebook and Twitter, asking for places to shoot, asking for scuba gear, for water noodles, and I had one of my supporters come through and we met at Costco where I got some of the swimming gear! How awesome is that?!
This song “You Matter to Me” is written by Sara Bareilles, and it’s from her new musical Waitress! Most of her new album are all songs she wrote for the show as well… and this by far is my favorite of them. I put the song on repeat literally hundreds of times! It holds so much emotion and we did our best to evoke as much of it as we could for you guys, and as we were thinking of ways to make that happen we decided to try to be as vulnerable and raw with our performance shots of us, and then also incorporating these two INCREDIBLE dancers.
I can’t tell you guys how much I love all the classic Disney songs especially the ones from movies that Alan Menken composed music for – Aladdin, Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, etc. LOVE them! There is something about Disney you just can’t help but love. In fact, Ev and I had our honeymoon at Disneyworld! We absolutely adore going and can’t wait to go again with Ash!
Guys! I am SO excited to have finally collaborated with this fine fellow Bryan Lanning. And what better song to collaborate on than a Disney classic? This song is from Disney’s Tarzan, and it’s by one of my personal favorite artists of all time, Phil Collins. And Bryan just released an EP about 3 weeks ago that happened to be #1 on iTunes, AND it was actually TOP 10 for almost a whole week too!! How awesome is that?! SO cool!

I am SO thrilled to announce my second album release! Misty Mountains: Songs Inspired by The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings will be available on Portrait Records, an imprint of Sony Music Masterworks. If you haven’t seen it yet, I also released the music video for “Arwen’s Song” – watch it right here!

I had such a BLAST with this song. It was sooo much fun! Where No One Goes is a song from the movie How To Train Your Dragon 2 (HTTYD2), and I really really wanted to sing it after everyone requested For the Dancing and Dreaming last year. Fortunately for you and for me, this was another very requested song! So I decided to go for it! THANK YOU all for the requests!
