This is opbmusic’s first video for On the Tracks.
For awhile, we’ve been exploring an idea for a new video series focused on songwriters, giving you a chance to hear a bit of the story behind each song and see the song performed on the old tracks behind OPB. (Look for upcoming videos from Robert Sarazin Blake and Ed and the Red Reds.)
When Denver members Mike Elias, Birger Olsen and Tom Bevitori showed up driving this old red Ford truck, the sun came out and we got a little crazy about the look of things on video.
The song is “Hot Denver #1,” from Denver’s eponymous summer release, which displays the band’s full 6-piece sound including members of Blitzen Trapper.
Check out On the Tracks and let us know what you think.
