When you think of summer what comes to mind?
- A cold beer
If this resembles your “must-have” list for most weekends in June, July and August, we may have your new summer anthem!
This week, Country/Americana musician (and Virginia transplant) Mike Aiken debuted his latest music video, “Summertime Song,” and we have a feeling the upbeat country tune with a bluesy guitar is going to have you dancing despite the heat.
“It’s a fun tune about playing ‘hooky’ from life. I want folks to actually feel the sand between their toes when they watch this video, because a day at the beach beats most days anywhere else.”
If some of the scenes from the video look familiar, it’s because Mike (who lives on a 42-foot sailboat in Hampton Roads) spent July 4th filming at First Landing State Park in Virginia Beach.
Mike also made sure to include beach scenes from some of his other favorite summertime spots.
“We used some footage from our own travels, but we were also able to incorporate clips from the Bahamas, Costa Rica, California and Brazil sent to us by friends. We like to keep our world view as large as possible.”
What are you waiting for?
Check out “Summertime Song” below and let us know if it’s going to be your new song of the summer!
