Summer’s End Videos from Sol Driven Train and Steven Fiore

Are you suffering from back-to-school and pre-Autumn blues? These videos from some local musicians may just provide the pick-me-up you need.

Earlier this week, Charleston-based act Sol Driven Train released a video for one of their most popular jams, “Watermelon,” directed and edited by David Keller of Charleston Video Service and shot by Keller and Zac Breitengross. The tune was originally released as the title track of an EP last summer.

Shot on Dirt Hugger Farm of James Island, it features a cameo from Eden Fonvielle of the V-Tones, silly choreography, and singer/guitarist Joel Timmons dressed head to toe in a fancy watermelon-themed suit. As with most of Sol Driven Train’s videos, it looks like they had a blast making it.

Conversely, pop singer/songwriter Steven Fiore once again joined forces with pianist/visual artist Andrew Walker of Rouge Wave Creative Development, Jail Break, and the Entropy Ensemble to produce a charming little video for “Styrofoam Airplane,” shot in the living room of Fiore’s home.

Fiore released the song online as part of a three-song EP titled Thank You. In case you’re wondering, the dog’s name is Pip.

Feel any better now?

Sol Driven Train will perform at the Pour House on Sun. Sept. 1 as part of the venue’s anniversary weekend. Fiore is set to perform at the Circular Congregational Church on Sat. Oct. 12.
