Due to the current global situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, many people – including all of us here at HIP, as we’ve been working remotely – have been spending a lot of time at home. We wanted to pay tribute to the things – and people – we love about “home”
Up first is the lyric video for “Home” by John Tracy. We’ve had the pleasure of working with John Tracy several times, and each video is an example of his musical gift. His songs are raw, and genuine, cutting right to the heart of the matter. It’s real music for real life, and his summer 2018 release Quintessential is sure to pull at your heartstrings. “Home”, the first single from the album is a “quintessential” John Tracy track, and the lyric video – which uses a variety of home movies and vintage footage – helps transport you back to a time where things were a little slower. there’s truly no place like home.
And on the other side of spectrum comes “Home” by Andrew W. Boss, featuring Adam Boss and Royal Bliss. Being a touring musician comes with the excitement of traveling the country (or even the world!) to perform and share your music with others. It’s a thrill of a ride but it comes with downsides, too: being away from those you love is sad and lonely. From the YouTube video, “Home” asks, “How can a professional musician blur the family and the road?”. The “Home” lyric video shows roads (and airplane runways and even train tracks) in many different geographical settings, but no scenery will compare to the family he’s missing at home.
