BLUE MOUNTAINS //
“Blue Mountains” from singer and string- instrumentalist Sam Amidon’s latest Nonesuch Records release Lily-O is an Appalachian ballad that tells an enigmatic tale of a young woman who falls in love with a married man. A new film for the song, created by filmmaker and fine-art/fashion photographer Andrea Sisson. The video was shot in Ojai, CA and features model/actress Alex Noiret.
“I met Sam several years ago on a New Year’s Eve in Iceland at Greenhouse Studios, amongst vodka, lamb and wild discussions,” Sisson said. “I found Sam on some steps in a corner, reading a book of poetry to a group of my friends, other musicians and artists. When we reconnected in Los Angeles five years later and he asked me to do this piece with him, I thought back to that night and immediately said ‘yes’.”
