frayed blue jeans

Recently I was watching the video for Matt Palka's "Frayed Blue Jeans" song, filmed in and around Youngstown.

I'll tell you what - it's a beautiful video which illustrates how amazing our local talent is, and how stunning our natural environment is. The Park (when there's a "the" before park, it implies Mill Creek Park) is a perfect backdrop for so many artistic endeavors.

Check out the video:

Matt biked across the country and wrote a book about his travels, with "Frayed Blue Jeans" being the first song on the accompanying soundtrack.

It's the first time I've watched a music video and recognized about half of the people who appear in it.

Produced and filmed by Chris Rutushin of River and Heron Productions, the video is also in the final round of a contest by Star 98.7 in Los Angeles. The winner gets a $25,000 recording contract with ATO Records, which was founded by Dave Matthews and Michael McDonald.

You can go here to vote for the video.

and you can read Matt's blog (now added to the blogroll) about the making of the video here.
