Video premier for 'TRANSISTOR RADIO'

The Country Note

Throughout the world of Bluegrass, the name Daryl Mosley has been known for over three decades. From The New Tradition, to the legendary Osborne Brothers followed by The Farm Hands, Mosley has always kept company with the genres best, and they with him. Last year, Mosley decided to step into the solo spotlight, releasing his debut album THE SECRET OF LIFE, which held at #1 for multiple weeks on the Roots Music Report Contemporary Album Chart and was a favorite on SiriusXM’s Bluegrass Junction.  Ready to add another gem to his career, Mosley is set to release his second solo album SMALL TOWN DREAMER later this year, and today he is premiering the music video for the album’s first single “Transistor Radio” exclusively with The Country Note.

“I wrote ‘Transistor Radio’ with Rick Lang,” says Mosley about his latest single. “Rick and I write a couple of times a month and he always comes in with unique ideas. Rick was talking about how he discovered popular music as a kid, listening to a little transistor. I also grew up with a little portable scanning the AM dial on a summer night looking for a baseball game or the Grand Ole Opry or something hot and blue from Memphis. I first heard the voices of Jack Buck, Johnny Cash, Sam Cooke, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and many others on that little portable. Once the memories started flowing, the song came easily. I knew that this song was one that I had to record myself. It was a special one.”

Produced by Ethan Burkhardt and Pinecastle Records, the music video was filmed on location in South Carolina at an old warehouse in Taylors and a private home in Easley. The 8mm look of the video gives the warm, nostalgic aesthetic of home movies edited alongside footage of Mosley performing – bringing past and present together.
