The video for Piedad de Mi was premiered at HuffingtonPost.com and we are excited to share it with you.
The video was shot in Smithers, along Main Street and features some local characters, an Afro sporting blue puppet and daisy backup singers. The mostly a cappella song with hints of requinto guitar narrates the puppets struggle to declare his feelings and receive a favourable response to his vulnerability.

Here is what some reviewers have said about the new album –
Lo Único Constante is superbly minimalistic yet profoundly full. Get ready for a sensory upload of sublime playing, creative arrangements and melodic delight. It’s a good filin (pun intended) with a touch of soul, pop and flamenco, and an irresistible dose of Afro-Cuban percussion. Indeed, you might find yourself hitting the replay button on the album’s catchy first single, “Todas Las Cabezas Están Locas (All Heads Are Crazy),” with its upbeat polyrhythms and syncopated hand claps. – NPR
Key to the whole tale are songwriting chops so strong that you don’t need to understand a word of Spanish …Couched in string arrangements that could be on a classic Beatles album… Lo Único Constante could be [his] next Grammy winner. – Montreal Gazette
