Happy Hump Day, ARTISTdirectioners. We are getting you through your Wednesday with the official and exclusive premiere of Jesse Macht's "Suitcase Heart" video from his sophomore album of the same name.
The album was recorded at Zac Brown Band's Southern Ground Studios in Nashville and Dockside Studios in Lafayette, Louisiana. The album explores the idea that we carry our hearts full of the stories of our lives, and that we must constantly choose how and with whom we will share the value of what's inside. Suitcase Heart is a product of Jesse Macht's recent participation in ASCAP'S prestigious Lester Sill Songwriters Workshop.
The album is out on September 23, but you can nab the song on iTunes.
"Audrey Hall is the director of the video," Macht told us. "She is a beautiful photographer who I met many years ago when she did a photo shoot for my old band, Burn Down the Mission. She and I had always hit it off, and she helped make Livingston, Montana and the surrounding environments a second home for me. The song asks 'What expectations do we have for ourselves? We want THIS, but we do THIS. Will that hinder us moving forward, or do we stay open moving forward? Or, is it truly just a little bit of both?' I wanted to shoot the video out in Montana, where the beauty of the surroundings allow me to have a calm ring while I grapple with all my own madness and love, and try to figure out those answers."
With that in mind, enjoy the video.
