CLINT ROBERTS’ UNVEILS OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO FOR “THE DRIFTER”
DIRECTED BY NASHVILLE’S DUSTIN HANEY FROM
NEW RECORD ROSE SONGS
The video was directed by Dustin Haney (Luke Combs, Jameson Rodgers, Noah Cyrus) and filmed in Nashville, T.N. on acres of gorgeous private land consisting of a hundred plus year old buildings, which are showcased in the video. The aesthetic perfectly fits the emotion of the song; a vagabond reflecting on the internal torment of loving another who can’t reciprocate the same sentiment. In celebration of the release, the official video is now featured on CMT.
Hailing from Western NC, the singer-songwriter and musician (guitar, banjo, harmonica, foot thumper and tambourine) blends the authenticity of Americana and folk music along with the boldness of roots rock. His sound has been compared to Bob Dylan and Bruce Hornsby by Rolling Stone and John Hiatt via Billboard.
His debut album, Rose Songs, was recorded at Ocean Way Studios Nashville and produced by Grammy Award winning producer/engineer Ben Fowler. In addition to Roberts (vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica), the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Gordon Mote (Piano, B3 Organ), Dan Dugmore (electric and steel guitar), Fred Eltringham (drums/percussion), Bryan Sutton (acoustic guitar) and Mark Hill (bass).
“I think my music has something for everybody,” says Roberts. “There’s an elation that comes with this being my debut record, for all these years to be put into this craft, and all of these songs being a culmination of my efforts and experiences in the world. I really love this album and I hope that everyone else does, too.”
