Premiere: “We Can Take The Long Way”

June 20, 2014

Making a music video is challenging. To me a song is personal: its story, message, or melody resonating uniquely with each listener. And adding moving pictures can sometimes paint a mood or suggest an attitude that is different from the way the listener may hear the song in his/her heart. “We Can Take The Long Way” is an effort to not make one finite music video, and instead tell a story about love and life with several songs from ‘YES!’ playing a supporting role. I recommend you turn down the lights, crank up the volume, snuggle up to your beloved, and enjoy the film.

Thank you,
Jason

    just watched your concert with RJ last night and you guys were AMAZING. you took my husband and i to another place, made me fall in love with him all over again with all your songs esp I WONT GIVE UP. Y’all just soooo gifted, and awesome and all the superlatives am sure with your vocabulary, you know. wish i can say al but its just inside and whenever i keep rewinding the concert, my smiles reach my ears. I LOVE IT. Now, am in a mission to save $ for any concerts you may have in the future. i would want a front seat, but i don’t need a front seat, any seat is fine because your voice along with RJ just reaches me inside out. in tagalog we say “ang galing galing”. i watched a concert last year by this famous band, but nothing compares to your music, they played their music almost to the sound of their cd, just added a few oohs and aahs and yeahs (it some it kinda didn’t jive with the instrumental music) but your—-wow. i had hot flashes last night, but your music made me relax and enjoy. i told my husband, “this guy will last in the music business” Congratulations – i m so glad God gifted us with an amazing talent that is you and RJ. even if our 17 anni is on October, this concert was the perfect celebration for it. THANK YOU

    Tears rolled down my face watching this love story. Absolutely beautiful. Best Friend could have easily been added to this heart touching, soul reaching short movie. Love, Peace, Direction.

    Clever and beautifully done! Usually videos change the song for me in not such a good way but the way these were tied together in such a fun, light-hearted and touching manner, changed that experience. Well done!

    Yesterday, being our 35th wedding anniversary and being together as a couple for forty years together(he asked me out when we were 16), this story told our past, present and, hopefully our future. Just a journey that teaches the greatest lessons. There’s so much richness is your songs, and so much wealth in life.
