The Tin Man Shows His Heart In Music Video For “Already Gone”
Alternative-Folk singer/songwriter The Tin Man, aka Marshall Seese Jr., illustrates a darkening love story with his new lyric video for Already Gone, directed by David Joseph. This song from his debut EP, Too Many Lines, is a tale about love, loss and the struggles that accompany it all.
The video, filmed in his hometown of Atlanta, GA, is a beautiful interpretation of the heartfelt, honest words. From the vintage clothing to the ruins of the decaying empty pool, the video makes you feel like you are in a distant memory. He writes the lyrics on an old-fashioned typewriter to further that rustic feel.
“One thing is certain — Seese has worked at his craft, molded it and shaped it into a style that works for him. From these tunes I think he has found his motherlode. The phrasing, the vocal tone, the warmth — all wonderfully more traditional.” – No Depression
In a world with so much self-destruction, distraction and hate, The Tin Man brings a refreshing soulful-southern sound that reveals truth and vulnerability. Unashamed of showing honest emotions that we all feel; he wears his heart on his sleeve. Being a piano player first, Marshall developed a unique method when learning guitar – He held his grandfather’s right-hande d bass ukulele as a lefty and played it backwards, upside-down. Playing rhythms with his left hand and melodies with his right seemed logical to a piano-trained boy. This technique embodies the signature sound that puts him in the same boat as Paul McCartney, Albert King and Doyle Bramhall II. As the original story goes, The Tin Man, at first, had a brain but not a heart. Following his roller coaster experience as an entrepreneur, Marshall realized that he let his brain take control over his heart. In need of some perspective, he embarked on his yellow brick road, the Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain. Immediately after returning from Spain, he sought out Grammy-nominated producer Billy Hume. By pushing Marshall in the studio to dig deeper, Hume gave him the heart behind his music, making Hume the Wizard in this story.
