Welcome back Tribe! We’re very excited to share our new Music video with you. We thought it would be fitting to offer a little background to Video, the concept and vision. Behind the scenes material if you will, and this may get a little deep….
So the Album ‘Lore’ was inspired by Joseph Campbell and his books “The Power of Myth” and “The Hero with a Thousand Faces.” The tracks on the album were written to express the different stages of the ‘Hero’s Journey’ a term which Joseph Campbell made popular. Stories based on Mythological, religious, and psychological archetypes.” One of Campbell’s most identifiable and quoted sayings was his admonition to “follow your bliss”. He derived this idea from the Upanishads (Sanskrit texts). “If you follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living. Wherever you are—if you are following your bliss, you are enjoying that refreshment, that life within you, all the time”.
This concept to ‘Follow your bliss’, had a very profound effect on my life and kept me pursuing music through some pretty challenging times. Before hearing this, I had no idea that others were not only thinking in this way, but actually glorifying pursuing what is right for you, not succumbing to the frame work and occupation society would prefer you to perform.
I felt a strong drive to express what it means to ‘Find your Bliss, because it put me on my proper path, ‘My Hero’ Journey,’ it turns out, was through music all along. From drumming on a little Indian powwow drum as a child, to College music courses and studio internships. It was step by step leading me to finish this quest. The quest I was searching for this whole time was inside me, but subconsciously I had to test my sincerity and conviction before I could properly express the tale. Your tale, our tale, the Hero’s tale.
In the Music Video, our Knight Levie represent the Hero in us all. Seeking the Sword of Knowledge, that voice inside of us, the call. Often we look for the answers outside, but the truth lies inward, it is from ‘the Outside looking in‘ that we find the hard truths. This is where to ‘Find your Bliss.’ Our hope is to inspire and encourage you to take that leap of faith, follow your inner voice and become the best version of yourself, take the ‘Hero’s Journey’ and Attack your Destiny…
