In December of 2014, Emilie and I traveled to Naples, Italy with our dear friend
Zack Taylor. For an entire week we stuffed ourselves silly on pizza, pasta and gelato and somehow managed to make a music video in between meals. I think Zack's direction and camera work beautifully capture the natural essence of this enchanting old port town.
The song's story literally began with Emilie 'talking in Italian in the other room' one night while I was strumming my guitar. Since then, I've dreamt of making a music video for it in Naples. I had never visited the city before but based on the mood of the song and what I knew about the gritty character of Naples, I had a feeling that the two would go together well. For me, the song's story comes to a fulfilling, heartfelt close with this video and the time we spent in Naples making it.
Very special thanks go to my brother Nick Zuniga for helping make this video possible. Also, thanks to Alberto Landolfi and Arturo Castaldi for letting us film on their beautiful roof and for giving us great filming location suggestions. Forza Napoli!
