Always Enough Official Music Video

Thanks Rolling Stone Country for the kind words, and video premiere, on your 10 Best Country and Americana Songs of the Week list! 

With its double-tracked vocals and kaleidoscopic pop twists, “Always Enough” channels the hushed, lo-fi symphonies of Elliot Smith’s Figure 8. Far from a mere nod to his influences, though, the song finds John Calvin Abney making peace with his biggest champion and simultaneous critic: himself. “Can’t you see that we were always enough?” he asks, turning the song into an ode to self-actualization.

Enjoy the video!
