New Music Video: Daryl Hance Has a Sense of Humor?

Mofro co-founder Daryl Hance has a new video for the song “Inside” from 2016’s Wild Blue Iris album.

Even had the gear on with the sweats and knit cap, but only because it was really cold. He had a pretty good time making this one. Inside is kind of a serious song, but he’s always more for making videos that are in the comedy/parody/satire realm if it lends itself to that. A couple shows coming up this week… 2/16 – Lake Shore Bar – Jacksonville, FL …
