The second in our new series of videos highlighting musicians in the South is nearly here. And while filmmakers Josh Rose and Stephen Maluck were shooting the talented Kelley McLachlan, we were reminded of our last collaboration with Kelley when she was in the folky indie rock trio, The Prairie Willows. In retrospect, I think Unsweetened can claim to have been The Prairie Willows biggest fan while they graced stages across South Carolina, and we were devastated when they put the band on a shelf as all three members moved on to other projects. But we’ll always have “Whiskey.”
Shot in the late summer heat of 2015, “Whiskey” was a breathtaking collaboration among puppeteers, artists, filmmakers, and musicians. Watch below and take note of the creativity, dedication, patience, and skill that it takes to make some wonderful art, and please stay tuned for our latest video with Kelley coming soon.
