Doug Hoekstra - 'Wintertime' Video Premiere

Pennyblackmusic is proud to premiere the video for 'Wintertime', the third single single from Nashville-based singer-songwriter and writer Doug Hoekstra's forthcoming first album in ten years, 'The Day Deserved'. The video was directed by Max Hall and Glenn Hall (Maximum Effect Productions, Atlanta, Georgia), and filmed in various locales in Alabama and Tennessee. Doug says: "Winter is a metaphor, ala 'Winter in America' by Gil Scott-Heron or 'Winter’s Tale' by Shakespeare. This song was inspired by a Nashville-Alabama drive, past miles of cotton fields, dark history rising to the present, in time to the ever redemptive power of music, especially sweet soul music. Sanctified. Beyond the layers of commentary woven throughout the lyrics, the song stands as a tribute to all the great R&B artists I love so much." He also adds: "Over the years I’ve developed a style that for better or worse, is who I am, and like anyone, I try to work within that style while broadening it, partly dictated by my strengths and limitations. I wish I had the tools or make-up to be a traditional soul artist, but alas, this is as close as I can get. That said, the arrangement does have instruments playing off each other, syncopated, in a way that pays homage to R&B and was one songs where I did had a conscious reference point."
