songs of joy - julie doiron - glad to be alive

Julie Doiron - Glad to be alive - TV DESSERTS ep. 8 from josh lyon on Vimeo.

We had breakfast with Julie and $100 after an amazing show at the Grad Club in Kingston... She was kind enough to let us record this song... Which I hadn't heard before that beautiful sunny day - It just happened to be on CBC as I was on my way out the door to Greg's house for breakfast, and seemed the most fitting anthem for that first warm sunny day of the year.

Who Killed Davey Moore - my new animated music video for Colin Munroe

Colin Munroe - Who Killed Davey Moore from josh lyon on Vimeo.

A full length animated music video for Colin Munroe's masterful re-vox of Bob Dylan's Who Killed Davey Moore.

This has been a labour of love for the past (sleepless) month of my life... I used to play bass in Colin's band and have since followed his trajectory as his musical works (which was already great) just keep getting better and better! And more and more people seem to be catching on too...

And then his manager asked me if I had interest in visually interpreting Colin's interpretation of this Bob Dylan song about a boxer... he threw a couple of ideas my way and I spent the next month or so cutting paper, shooting, animating, compositing, refining, etc. into what you see before you.
