Music Video Monday: John Kilzer

Posted By on Mon, Jun 8, 2015 at 10:47 AM

By any measure, John Kilzer has had an eventful life. He's been a college basketball player, an English professor, an internationally renowned recording artist, and a Methodist minister. Now, at age 57, he has put out a new album of original songs on Memphis' Archer Records


"California" is the second video from Hide Away. The song is about trying and failing to make it in the wilds of Hollywood. Director Melissa Anderson Sweazy and editor Laura Jean Hocking put Memphis actor Drew Smith back in the silent era for this beautiful and poignant video—and be sure to watch for the cameo by Drew's son Hank.
