TVD Video Premiere: Marc Stone, “Digitized”

PHOTO: RICK MOORE | “We’re fed so much bullshit through this digital onslaught. I’m just trying to cut through that with some funky acoustic music and little dose of truth.” That’s guitarist, vocalist, songwriter and producer Marc Stone on his motivation for releasing his first official video after decades in the music business. TVD is proud to present the exclusive premiere of “Digitized.”

The song takes a hard-grooving shot at all the digital misinformation pouring off our screens every day. Stone steps out front on an acoustic National steel guitar proving to many who know him primarily as a blues artist that he can rock as well.

His powerhouse, all-star band features Grammy-winning roots renegade Alvin “Youngblood” Hart on harmonica, psychedelic soul shaman Papa Mali, New Orleans funk legend Marilyn Barbarin, and down home belters Terry Scott, Jr. and Deanna Bernard. Veteran New Orleans jazz master Richard Moten anchors the proceedings with liquid lines from his upright bass.

The video mixes footage of the band in the studio with a collection of jarring images culled from the fraught world in which we find ourselves. A recurring shot of a surveillance camera and other aspects of our techno-security society are juxtaposed with the bliss of musicians at work on a song that comments directly on the culture we live in.

In other news, Stone has started a fundraising campaign to help to press and promote his latest album, Live in Europe. To donate go here.

Video production: Keith Hoffman/Comfy Stone Films.
