    I want to create music that exists to confront and celebrate what it means to be a part of the human experience.

    About the song

    How Long Blues is a throwback to pre-vinyl rural Mississippi. A portrait of a lover's dilemma, How Long Blues doesn't mince words: "how come you treat me like you do?", "you could've had it all, but you treated her so unfair". Amy's lead guitar is rounded out by a backing band that sets an electric country atmosphere with bold zing.

    I am a passionate and resourceful filmmaker with a keen interest in pushing boundaries.

    Why I want to work with Amy Nelson

    I filmed Amy's solo musical debut for the web-series The Calgary Collection. Since then, Amy's career has taken off, and I want to share her hypnotizing and formidable stage presence with the world! She's got style, a drop-dead voice, and a strong artistic vision - a filmmaker's dream inspiration!
