FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
JEFFERSON GRIZZARD UNVEILS NEW VIDEO, "LEARNING HOW TO LIE," SCHEDULES UPCOMING PERFORMANCES WITH WILLIE NILE
For many rock acts, a memorable music video is crucial to their development and for building a global fan base.
And with Jefferson Grizzard's new video for the title track of his latest album, 'Learning How to Lie,' the singer/guitarist has certainly accomplished this.
For the clip, Grizzard has hooked up with famed director, Matt Mahurin, whose track record speaks for itself - directing such classic videos over the years as the Black Crowes' "She Talks to Angels," Queensryche's "Silent Lucidity," Metallica's "The Unforgiven," and Alice in Chains' "Angry Chair," among others.
"Working with Matt was an amazing experience," explains Grizzard. "His expertise and relaxed style made being in front of the camera easy. Somewhere between the beauty of Topanga Canyon and the experience of working with an expert film maker, the shoot was surreal. Mahurin is truly a master of his craft."

The Georgia native is best described as either a "poetic singer/songwriter with his roots in American Rock" or "'65 Dylan and the Hawks meet Cohen and Petty," and the proof is in the music throughout 'Learning How to Lie,' which runs the gamut from rocking tunes ("Long Time Coming") to ballads ("Lorelei"), and also strikes a chord lyrically (especially the aforementioned title track, which offers commentary on the human condition).
And Grizzard's talents are being recognized by his peers, including fellow singer-songwriter Willie Nile, who has had praise for the new release (and even contributes vocals to a bonus track, "When Levon Sings"). “Brilliant new CD by Jefferson Grizzard. Thunder and lightning in letters from the underground. Strangers and outcasts learning how to lie in the search for truth and salvation. Tom Waits meets the Stones at the Heartbreak Hotel. Great album.”
