Indianapolis musician Laura K. Balke has been on a roll lately. Since releasing Rumors & Legends in November, she has embarked on an east coast tour, taken part in a challenging songwriting goal, and released the deeply emotional music video for “Not For This“. You’d think she wouldn’t have time for much else, and yet, here we have another music video, this time for a brand new song “Old Friend“. The track was recorded at the Sound Workshop while Laura was recently visiting Bloomington, and is a charming song. The music video is just as delightful, featuring a spontaneous collection of Balke’s own photographs, many featuring ‘old friends’ and family.
Could this get anymore quaint? Why, of course! While the song is available as a free download, you can opt to purchase a customized wallet that has been hand stenciled by Laura Balke & Co. It has room for 24 wallet-size photos of you and your friends (old or new); the band even starts you off by including a photo of both Laura and bandmate Zachary Walter Jetter from their high school days. It’s terribly cute, but hurry if you want one, there are only 30 to go around.
