Rolling Stone Premieres MIKE WATERS Behind-The-Scenes Of Gambling Man

Rolling Stone Australia have premiered a hilarious and insightful behind-the-scenes short film from Mike Waters about the video shoot for his debut single ‘Gambling Man’. Watch/share it HERE

Mike told Rolling Stone, “I was back at Oli Sansom’s (the director) studio and he showed me how much B roll he had from the video shoot. We’d done a lot of tests and trials of different ideas, as well as just generally being idiots suffering through various stages of caffeine-enhanced lunacy. I realised I’d also been taking a lot of video on my phone when we were rehearsing/shooting too, just for memories really.”

“I thought it’d be silly not to cut this together into something, because it showed the creative process we went through to get to where we did. It was so much more than just having an idea and executing it, and I wanted to share a bit of that with the world… Also I’m probably a little too proud of my little homage to Bush at the end, and I felt it would be a shame for that to go to waste.”

Mike is excited that he will support Andrew McMahon on a national tour next month. Making his name as the frontman of the seminal US rock acts Something Corporate and Jack’s Mannequin, Andrew’s introspective lyrics and dazzling voice has amassed a reverent and dedicated fan base across the world. Andrew McMahon and Mike Waters will travel to Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth in August. More details HERE.
