Premiere: “Tempest” by Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band

“Tempest,” the cinematic new video from Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band, was filmed in the verdant climes of the Pacific Northwest, and marries the ancient beauty of the natural world with the age-old poignancy of roots music. The song itself is inspired by Michael Ondaatje’s novel The Cat’s Table.

“True to his poetic soul, each page of Michael Ondaatje’s novel The Cat’s Table drips with evocative imagery and poetry,” says Robinson. “There are many strands to the story but there is a time in the life of the protagonists when one old love goes in search of the other. I got the idea that their love never died though they were separated by years and continents. There is a scene set in the Pacific Northwest – one waiting, one in search of the other. It inspired a poem that I wrote called ‘Tempest.’ Jim had been playing around with some melodies and I heard one that fit the mood of the poem and story. So, as we often do, we put these inspirations together and now we have a song.”

Without further ado, Mother Church Pew proudly presents “Tempest,” the new video from Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band:
