Balsam Range, ‘Eldorado Blue’ Music Video [Exclusive Premiere]
North Carolina-based bluegrass five-piece Balsam Range are premiering the music video for their song “Eldorado Blue” exclusively for readers of The Boot.
Bluegrass fans who grew up in a small town will find plenty to relate to in “Eldorado Blue,” a song that explores the dilemma of whether or not you even want to spread your wings and leave home. Balsam Range describe the song as "a story of finding oneself and recognizing contentment in life is something we can all stand to do.”
“Whether it means moving away or staying in what may seem an unlikely location to achieve it," the band adds, "[it] is a blessing.”
Filmed at Crossroads Studios near Asheville, N.C., the music video for “Eldorado Blue” provides an intimate glimpse into Balsam Range's process of laying down tracks in the studio; those clips are juxtaposed with shots of Small Town USA. Readers can press play above to watch.
"Eldorado Blue" appears on Mountain Voodoo, Balsam Range’s sixth full-length album, released in November and available on the band's official website. Since the group's inception in 2007, Balsam Range have quickly earned praise from fans and critics alike: They've won 10 International Bluegrass Music Association Awards for their five albums.
