Story behind the music and the video:
We get asked all the time, 'How do you like touring?' We love it. We especially love meeting the people who have been listening, sharing, and supporting our music. We are so grateful for the opportunities we have, thanks to you. But as we travel along with our equipment, checked luggage, cellos, and carry-on bags we carry a feeling that never gets checked away. We miss our family. We miss home. When we first heard Phillip Phillips' "Home" we couldn't help but be emotionally drawn to it.
We started arranging this tune by slowing it way down...then speeding it way up...then splitting the difference until it laid into just the right tempo. Once we had the right feel it flowed. Jon's piano licks especially shined in this arrangement -- lending the energy we needed to portray the feeling of heading home after a long journey. The lyrical, placid cello melodies represent a fatigued serenity. The last chorus is the sound of what we feel when we see our families after a long tour -- the familiar smells, the familiar smiles, and the incomparable feeling of belonging...click here to read the rest of story https://thepianoguys.com/pages/home-t...
We want to thank Breck Dockstader, his family, and the Cliff Rose Lodge for helping us with the locations of this video. Breck hung out with us the entire time ensuring we had everything we needed - he helped move the piano, offered location options, and even let us stay in his family's lodge. We'd like to dedicate this video to his father Dale Dockstader, whom we consider a very special "fan" and whom we all felt was enjoying the video shoot with us, but from the best vantage point of all.
