There are moments in life when you hear a song and it takes you to a place that is hard to explain. It evokes feelings of happiness, sorry, and joy all at once. The music from the band Clocks and Clouds does that. I love what they say on their site”
The group has given many educational concerts around the Midwest showing students that Bach and the Beatles aren’t all that different. C&C strives to demonstrate that bringing rock into the classroom doesn’t lessen the importance of Mozart and Beethoven, but strengthens the foundation that these great composers laid.
This music video was shot by fellow colleague Dan Rollins of LiveWire Films who is a relative newbie to the business. Keep up work like this Dan and you’ll be on the teaching circuit in no time.

Starts a little Schindler’s List, little Godfather…then moves to Lady Gaga-ish then Transsiberian Orchestra-ish, then back again. Pretty groovy.
Ron Dawson says
I thought of Schindler’s List and Trans-siberian too. I like the eclectic nature.
Dan Rollins says
I wish I could say I was going for that look/feel with the video 🙂 Great observations! Ron thanks so much for the spotlight, this really means a lot. I follow your posts but never thought I would be in one 🙂 I have listened to the rough cut of C&C’s next track and it is incredible! Not sure if we will do a video for it, but be sure to follow them. Thanks!
