As we wait with baited breath for the release of Texas-bred, Nashville-based indie rock musician Sierra Blanca‘s brand new EP on November 10th, we’ve got the music video for his track “Book” for you to enjoy. But Sierra has taken the term “back to your roots” to a new level, performing the track live in the woods at night amongst the stars, the chirping bugs, a small crowd, and – of course – the trees and their many roots. And while we could let the white noise from grasshoppers and creatures of the night get to us, it adds an ambiance to the track that makes us feel as though we’re outside enjoying a crisp night with friends under the stars. And – after all – that seems to be what he was after to begin with. So gather your own sense of community by watching the video, and let us know what you think below!

Honorable Mention is out November 10th. Keep up with Sierra Blanca here.
