"It was one of those October days..." Welcome to the lyric video for my song "Heavens To Betsy." Since I first wrote the song in 2007, it has been one of my most requested fan favorites. I recorded it for my Lucky No. 7 album and released it in 2012. It has been licensed for a few upcoming films and I always enjoy playing it live because the song is a different experience every time. "It was one of those October days..." 

Watch The Video Here: 

The music video stars Noëlle Arora and yours truly and is mainly from footage I filmed on location in Germany at Hohenzollern Castle along with actual studio footage of me recording the actual vocal take you hear on the album in the studio back in 2009 at Sixteen Tons Studios in Nashville, TN. The studio footage was either filmed by Jason Feldner, Aaron Weistrop or Davey Rieley. Because I am not sure, I give all three of them thanks!

I wrote the song in a New York hotel room on my Gibson J-45 and built up the track in my home studio in Chicago with acoustic guitars and some atmospheric electric guitars. Everything else was overdubbed including Claire Holley's haunting accompanying vocal as well as Aron Topielski's truly amazing bass part. So many bass players have asked me about Aron's bass line over the years. 

I am so happy this song brings so many so much joy and I hope you enjoy the video and may it take you on just enough of a trip or adventure to take away your worries for a few minutes.
