Last Friday, Dallas folk-rock singer-songwriter, Silas Nello, went rummaging through the dusty boxes in his attic and found his wistful vacation video for “The Jester.” Directed by Kansas Bowling in Los Angeles, the warm and nostalgic video creates a sense of yearning through reminiscent memories of a past life with someone special. The vintage vignettes fuzzily flicker across the super 8 film with carefree optimism as Nello and Parker Love Bowling frolic along the sunny West Coast landscape. Nello’s poetic southern songwriting sinks into the comforting acoustic backdrop of the “The Jester” as shimmering harmonics highlight the chorus. The contemporary video fits Nello’s southern rock persona by combining elegant retro with conceptual neoteric.
You can catch Silas Nello on Saturday, Nov. 18th at the historic Longhorn Ballroom for the 15th annual Cedars Open Studios and official after party with Hand Drawn Records label-mate Henry the Archer.
