ORLANDO, FL - 10/13/2017 (PRESS RELEASE JET)
The animated video for the Blindman song "Lonely Road" will be featured at the 2017 Orlando Film Festival. Showtime is October 20, 2017 at 3PM in Theater 9. Run time for the short film is 3 minutes and is the dramatic story of a young boy and lion coming of age. The music video draws inspiration from Blindman's early childhood including the critically acclaimed "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" and the cartoon "Belle and Sebastian". The video transcends multiple religions including Christianity, Judaism, and Rastafarianism in that The Lion of Judah is ever present and triumphant over zombies, monsters and vultures who are in constant pursuit of one's destruction.
The video was directed by Myke Rivera of Pinkbull Worldwide and was co-written with Blindman, the artist and producer of the song.
As a bandleader, front man, songwriter, keyboardist, hype man, and percussionist, Blindman has shared the stage with an eclectic group of internationally acclaimed artists including Kanye West, The Roots, Julian Marley, Talib Kweli, Wyclef, Slightly Stoopid, Barrington Levy, Common, Jimmy Cliff, The Original Wailers, CeeLo, Robert Randolph, Fishbone, Madball, Napalm Death, VOD, Ludacris, and the Black Eyed Peas. He has been performing live music since the age of 16 and has performed everywhere from the garage to the main stage. Performing to a wide variety of audiences, Blindman has matured into a stand-out, must-see entertainer. “The fact is playing underground hard-core shows, college jam-outs, rock festivals, and reggae-a-thons have all taught me that nothing can deny the energy an artist brings to the stage. People go to concerts to feel the music and it is up to the artist to bring it.”
