Sandy and George are also Twitch musicians who play 3 streams per week on twitch with 12,000 followers.

The 5-minute video was directed and produced by New Hero Pictures out of Northport, MI. The production company has been in the business of creating films for the big screen, commercials for individuals and businesses, and music video production for artists in the area.

It was such an eye-opening experience to work with them on this, see their process, and help share it with the world. They are known and respected locally, playing music live at shows, and internationally through their Twitch Channel. They are doing huge things in a small town, and we love to see that.”
