We got to hang out with some of Dan’s favorite birds recently, making a new music video with a song from our latest album, “Between the Rain.” Thanks to the Dennis family for letting "Pancakes" and "Ruffles" take part. The song was inspired by Dan's transformation over the past few years. He's gotten a LOT healthier and hopes to be on the path of music making to a ripe old age at this point. I got to wear my producer and videographer hat again, planning all the video locations and concept, and doing the videography and editing. We hope you have as much fun watching the video as we did making it!
