Chris Stamey - 'Lovesick Blues' video gallery

Chris gave himself an ambitious project to accompany the release of his recent solo album, Lovesick Blues. He's creating a video for every song on the album — and he's more than halfway there.

Here's what Chris told Bill Kopp early last year,
as published at Bill's Musoscribe blog:

QUESTION: You’ve been quite busy lately: The dB's album and select live dates last year [in 2012], the chamber-pop ensemble you led that opened for The Zombies at Cat’s Cradle, and the new Lovesick Blues album. What’s next?
 
CHRIS STAMEY: I’m making a video for every song on the record, pretty much all on my lonesome — and I know less than the hamster next door, about cinema! So it’s really fun, it’s wide open when you don’t know what you are doing. (Read the rest of the interview HERE.)


For your viewing & listening pleasure, here's the Lovesick Blues video gallery.
