Andy Sydow Premieres New Music Video for “Reasons For Departure”
Denver-based singer-songwriter Andy Sydow dropped a new music video for “Reasons For Departure”, directed by Scott McCormick and Greg Carr, who created the animation as well.
The song is the second single off of his upcoming the same title album, which is expected to be released on May 11, 2018.
The song reminds us of Elton John's "Your song". But the sound is 70's music like Jackson Browne.
The new album “Reasons For Departure” comprises of 10-track and produced by Chris Daniels. It is his first album in three years. But after the second album "Trailhead", he released the EP "A Little Messed Up" in 2016.
He plans to hold a CD release show at Lost Lake in Denver on May 11th. Afterwards, he embarks the tour in support of the album at Zebra Cocktail Lounge in Bozeman on May 24th.

Andy Sydow told No Depression about the video in an interview;
"Greg Carr did the music video as well as the album art. He is an incredible talent! For the music video, he actually drew hundreds and hundreds of sketches and sequenced them all together. It blows me away every time I watch it. It took him weeks to do, but the actual filming was done in just one night. Carr along with his partner in crime, Scott McCormick filmed me performing the song about four times on an upright piano in front of a green screen. Then one of my friends (and former student) sat on the piano bench and was filmed at several different angles. She got to play the “antagonist.” Greg took the images from the video and drew everything."
- Andy Sydow started his music career at age 16 and debuted with his self-titled album in 2013. His second album "Trailhead" was released in 2015.
The 26-year old singer said of the new album;
"I think all songs are autobiographical to some extent. Even if it isn’t something that specifically happened to me, it at least somewhat draws my own life experiences. I think in general, the closer I am to a song, the easier it is to get out. Even if it’s just an emotion as opposed to a specific event, it’s a lot harder for me to write about something that I don’t relate to as well."
