Elles Bailey has released the brilliantly dark video for ‘Medicine Man’, the first glimpse we’ve had of her new album, ‘Road I Call Home’ that will be released on March 8th. The song was released last month and immediately shot to the top of the iTunes Blues Chart.
“The song was inspired by a con artist I managed to get myself entwined with,” Elles explains, “He reminded me of the medicine men: you know – the folks who used to go around in their horse and carts, peddling their ‘miracle elixirs’ when in fact they were just selling a whole load of nothing!’
This video brings the story of the song to life perfectly. Elles Bailey – “We wanted the video to capture the essence of what the song is about: trickery, mystery, the dark side and of course, the Medicine Man! It tells the story of getting tricked by the Medicine Man into his world, and going through a series of trials with people he has trapped previously, culminating in meeting him again at the end, and ultimately defeating him and getting away!”
Elles will be heading out on tour in the new year again, and having seen Elles play live for the first time at the start of this month, it’s a tour not to be missed.
