#TheRollingStones weren’t the first to #cover - “Time Is On My Side”. In fact there is a really bad ass version by #IrmaThomas that you should check out!
Our cover version is a much more stripped down version of the classic. It’s sung and played by the Energy Commission’s Danielle Cales on our trademark “pink ukuklele”. The song was recently licensed by Austria’s leading telecom provider for a heartwarming ad that reminds us true friendship never ends. Check it out here - http://youtu.be/JljZpA4wrZ0
The music video was shot primarily in #Chicago at iconic locations like the #MagnificentMile and behind #theAlley store on N Clarke. We shot it here because it’s our home sweet home. It’s where we’ve seen the band grow from no name clubs to headlining the #HouseofBlues. The video actually has some very old footage cut in and will probably be very sentimental for those who’ve seen us grow over the years. The time that’s passed is evident when you see the Frances (Jay and Danielle’s little #Pomeranian) as a #cute little #puppy.
The song is available on iTune as a single. Or you can get it along with 2 other songs from our unreleased album, by pre-ordering now.
Thank you to all of our #Commissioners, friends, families, and creative partners along the way.
When “give up” isn’t in your vocabulary, then Time is definitely on your side!
Being a musician you are always asked - “What Kind of music do you play?” or “What song best represents you?”
Well we are more than “just a band” and the scope of our songs makes it too difficult to narrow down to just one.
But today at 5:30pm I will be posting a video. This video is by far my proudest creative achievement to date. In 6 minutes it shows highlights from our past and points to a bright future for The Energy Commission.
So now when people ask, I can point them to the - “E”xperience that this video suggests. If you are a friend, family, or a “Commissioner” I ask that you comment and share the video as it represents the culmination of hours of sweat and tears. It represents the passion, ambition, and dreams of my closest friends and family. It is my life in 6 minutes.
