“The Next Go Round” Music Video: Dwight + Nicole (Rock)

“I Only Do It ‘Cause I Have To” Music Video: Dennis J. Leise (Folk/bluegrass)

On his latest single “I Only Do It ‘Cause I Have To” – from the album The World That You Grew Up In Is No More – Northwest Indiana farmer-musician Dennis J. Leise turns his wit on himself. The video (directed by Rob Fitzgerald) shows Leise at his grind, on his farm.

“Daisy Duke Two Step” Music Video: Alicia G (Pop)

On “Daisy Duke Two Step”, buzzworthy hip-hop/pop crossover artist Alicia G breaks down her style into simplistic terms. Ready to secure a lot of fresh focus from country music lovers, the “Daisy Duke Two Step” music video (directed by No Apology Productions) sees Alicia G demonstrating her moves for all those around her.

“Sure Got Cold After The Rain Fell” Music Video: Greg Hoy & The Boys (Rock)

Greg Hoy’s vast knowledge of the music industry makes his band, Greg Hoy & The Boys, a well-oiled machine. Their new visual (directed by Greg Hoy and Will Toft) takes us 50 years in the past, revisiting ZZ Top’s “Sure Got Cold After The Rain Fell.”

“The One That Got Away” Music Video: The High Plains Drifters (Pop/rock)

When pop-rock band The High Plains Drifters sing about love, they make every word and every note count. “The One That Got Away” is a lament for a relationship lost. The video for “The One That Got Away” (directed by Lars Jørgen Sundnes Skaland) takes place in Trondheim, Norway, six hours north of Oslo.

“Thinkin Bout You” Music Video: Star 2 (Rap)

R&B balladeer Star 2 is a promising young artist on the rise. He has teamed up with filmmaker (and prior collaborator) Hector Toro once again for “Thinkin Bout You.” The clip stars Lexi Torres, as Star 2 plays a Lyft driver haunted by her memory.
