Kasteel Well Video Project: “Okay” by Barefoot Truth

When I left Boston to live in the Europe for 3 months, I knew I wanted to come home with something special and different to remember my travels by.  Seeing as music has such an impact on my life, I decided to create a music video while I was gone.  I wanted to pick a song that I felt would make me smile every time I had to sing it while recording, every time I had to listen to it while editing and most importantly every time I watched it after it was done.

I eventually chose the song “Okay” by Barefoot Truth.  As one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite bands, I felt that it was an appropriate song that would fit the tone of my adventures.  Barefoot Truth played their final run of shows in November and I thought this would be another way to help keep their music alive even after they’ve finished touring.  Their music always brightens up my day, so I hope it will do the same for you!

Some fun facts about the video:
