Philly-bred musician Yellow Shoots (b. Greg Matthews) has a hearty career playing guitar for fellow Philly artists Ryan Toby of the Grammy-nominated trio City High and GoGo Morrow at the Made In America music festival.
Now based in Brooklyn, Yellow Shoots is stepping out as his own artist; the singer, songwriter, producer debuts the video for his single”Stormy Weather.” The song is hazy and bluesy with a John Mayer flare. Additionally, Yellow Shoots’ rock vocal tone makes for a sonically-diverse song.
Directed by Aly Migliori, the song’s official music video is an intimate look at Yellow Shoots and his band, as they evoke rain clouds of misty grays and blues in their live performance of the song.
“‘Stormy Weather’ is about a person losing a relationship or separating ties with someone. It talks about how one doesn’t actually feel the depths or significance at the time they lose a relationship,” he explains. “I tried to demonstrate that I often get hit with that wave of “loss” at an unexpected time, which is often triggered by an unexpected event. Life is odd and awkward for a bit and all of a sudden you get smacked in the face with everything that’s missing, everything you had before.”
“Stormy Weather” is the title track of Yellow Shoots’ forthcoming EP, set for release before the year’s end.
