Today’s premiere for Singer/songwriter/guitarist Michael Sackler-Berner’s new video does not rock. It doesn’t folk-rock either, as fans of his solo work might expect – it swings. In MSB’s dreams, it’s Bennett, Sinatra, or Martin, but there’s a punk side to the track because he’s not a crooner by trade. It is tailor-made for people who think Bublé is cheese, but dig young gents singing and writing tunes for Big Band. Pop and jazz fans alike will latch onto this “Autumn in New York” release by the Big Apple native.
The stop-motion video by John David McGrew features a top-hat clad MSB walking the streets of his lifelong city discovering “Dreamers stacked amongst schemers, in big grey castles, trading peace of mind for the hassle”. The song is off his most recent album, SHORT STORIES (Sony Red/The Orchard).
