Eric Silverman releases a video for his song “Reno Nights” from his debut solo EP Rookie. Out now and produced by Grammy-nominated Damien Lewis.
When asked about the song Silverman explains, “Reno Nights ended up being my favorite song on Rookie. It felt good to be able to write about characters rather than myself and find parts of myself in those characters. We wanted the song to have a ‘walk on the wild side’ feel. The lyrics for the chorus came out pretty quickly when writing the song, it felt like no one had asked those questions before, so I guess I wanted to put them in the song. I think especially now where people feel more isolated, more distant the song ends up resonating even more.”
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic and restrictions Silverman enlisted the help of his friend and actor/director Dan Pfau to find a creative way to shoot the video. “The video concept was Dan’s idea. I own these two Muppets and we’ve always wanted to do something with them. He took them around the Echo Park area of Los Angeles and filmed this long-lost love story.”
