Today, Rayland also shares the video for “Casanova“, shot in LA by filmmakers Roxanna Dunlop and Arden Grier (Light Layer Productions). He says of it, “I met Arden and Roxy earlier this year while they were producing a friend’s music video in Texas. We got along great and I loved their optimism and excitement. When it came time to make a video for ‘Casanova’ they were my first call. I flew to LA… they put me in a suave rico smooth purple suit and told me to start runnin…so I ran…through alleyways and over bushes…flipped out in a garage…and cannonballed into a pool…and the coppers never got a hand on me. But I couldn’t walk for a week after. My legs gave up…then I crawled through the airport and went back on tour and now I have quite a fine memory from it all. I hope you enjoy the visuals. :)”

Wide Awake sees Baxter take his subject matter the intensely personal through to acerbic social satire, lead track Casanova deals with relationships and debt, whilst looking inwards at the US with the 2016 Trump election in Strange American Dream and the nation’s gun fixation conveyed in 79 Shiny RevolversOn a more personal note Baxter has, for the first time with Hey Larocco written about a crucial event in his life, one that consequently led him down the path to his current musician status.
