She Mob - Bend Down Low (another music video)

I just keep traveling and then making music videos. These are bristlecone pines that live in the White Mountains in the Eastern Sierras. Their pine cones have actual bristles, so that's a good name for these trees. But what the name doesn't tell you is that bristlecone pines, if the conditions are right, can live thousands of years. THOUSANDS OF YEARS. There's a tree in this forest that's more than 4,000 years old. Another one, further up the trail, has recently been clocked at 5,000+ years. The National Park Service won't tell you which ones, so don't ask. Just ponder the significance of living things that are THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD.

Bend Down Low was penned by Suki O'Kane and was recorded for She Mob's third album, "Not In My World." Suki's singing lead and playing accordion. Joy Hutchinson's playing guitar and she and I are singing backup. Jeff Hobbs has an alto clarinet solo. And the bristlecone pines are THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD.
