Video Release!

December 17, 2019 – Hope y’all get a chance to check out my just-released video for my song “Alright,” which came out today! It was directed by my dear friend, Emmy-award-winning producer/director Anthony Hemingway (Red Tails, American Crime Story, Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G), who fashioned the video after the film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. We’re thrilled that “Alright” is receiving worldwide radio airplay – it’s our longest-lasting radio single to date.

We had a great time making this video! My dear friend Anthony captured the song’s upbeat vibe and laid-back groove in a vignette format – backed by energetic, hip-hop country (Is that a thing?? It is now!) choreography by Draico Johnson. We had excellent dancers and crew, and it was a blast watching it come to life!

“Alright” was written by Jennifer Denmark, Sam Brooker and Katie Cole (of Smashing Pumpkins) and was previously debuted by Think Country Music. Featured in the video is impressive dancing choreographed by Dondraico (“Draico”) Johnson, who has done work for Michael Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Miley Cyrus, to name a few. The video was produced by OBRA-Visual (past work for Lil Nas X, Cardi B, Nike, Puma, Fila) and we feature international model/World Poker Federation spokesmodel Tugba Ercan, with additional guest voices by comedian George Wallace and actor Page Kennedy.

Hope you like it! (You can check it out in my “Videos” section here on the site.)

It’s a big day for us at Stephen Martines Music. We couldn’t be more thrilled about “Sounds Like Whiskey” reaching the top spot on The Iceman’s “New Country Artist” chart. Stephen, the band, Red Rose Records, and all of us involved are extremely grateful to The Iceman and all of you for requesting this song and loving it as much as we do. We wouldn’t be here without you all, and we are extremely thankful. We’d also like to thank Vinny Vencent Van-zant Hickerson,  Jay Brunswick and Josh Dunne for this song. You guys are awesome. And kudos to Sam Maul and the folks at Shock City Studios for their solid work!
