Coming off of their debut record Ripped In No Time, the video was directed by Damon Bishop, and features two essentials for an awesome video…ghosts and balloons! Check it out here! !

Snowglobe And Paul Taylor Featured On $5 Cover

It took me a little while to understand exactly what this show was about, but it’s called $5 Cover, and it was created by Craig Brewer (Black Snake Moan, Hustle & Flow), The program is a scripted show following a few musicians from Memphis, TN trying to make it in the music world. Among many other artists, the show has featured Makeshift Music artists Paul Taylor and Snowglobe. The first video is of Snowglobe performing their heavily catch song “Nothing I Can Do”, and the second video (you have to skip to the 3:50 mark!) features Paul Taylor the “Multi Instrumentalist” laying down an impressive self jam!
