ARTISTdirect.com has partnered with Jimmy Nash to premiere the video for the lilting, acoustic song "Before You Go." The song tugs at the heart strings.
About the song and video, Nash told ARTISTdirect.com, "In a world of extravagant videos shot like Hollywood blockbusters fully equipped with random exploding cars flying through the air, my manager and I knew we needed to come up with something on an independent label budget that would still catch someone’s attention like those videos. We looked for some inspiration from Fiona Apple’s 1997 music video for 'Criminal.' Even though that video I’m sure was very complex to make, it was shot to look very stripped down production-wise with several things that technically speaking looked wrong, but those things really made it unique and beautiful. So for 'Before You Go,' we just thought one camera, one light, one person, one song – I think that simplicity will help just give people a visual platform to hear the song. I of course would never mind to have random exploding cars in one of my videos, but I just need to write a song where pyrotechnics are appropriate…maybe next album."
