“Plan your best for tomorrow, but live for today and enjoy what you have, because tomorrow will take care of itself.” – Nathan Smith

 

Renowned guitarist, singer and songwriter Nathan Smith’s brand-new album of original works, Here’s to the Now, was released in July this year and fellow artists and musicians like Bobby van Jaarsveld, Riana Nel, Francois van Coke, Ricus Nel and many others describes it as a masterpiece! 

 

The first two singles taken from this album and released to radio stations nationwide simultaneously during June, DECISIONS and CLOSER had and incredible reception! 

 

The title track, HERE’S TO THE NOW, is about being so distracted by what we need to do or still want to achieve, or a situation, that we totally miss the good we have in our lives at the very moment.  “In my case, it was missing great moments with my wife, Jackie.  Being there, but not present, not enjoying, or missing the opportunity of the small things in life, which are actually in fact the big things in life and saying sorry about that and that I will live one day at a time, so HERE’S TO THE NOW!”, says Nathan.

 

Willem Viljoen from SASC was the director of photography and directed the music video and it was produced by Zap High Speed Studios https://www.facebook.com/ZAPhighspeed/ and TA Group Media http://www.tagroup.co.za/ The band performances was shot at Foghound studios in Midrand https://www.facebook.com/foghoundstudios/ and was recorded in only 5 hours.  A lot of the performance footage was shot using a Talos Motion Control Rig (a robot arm with a camera which runs on a track) with a 9m x 3m LED screen as a backdrop.   The home video type footage was shot on the lovely Western Breeze game farm in Limpopo https://www.facebook.com/thewesternbreeze/  with 3 hours of footage compacted into the video. 

 
The concept was to capture everyday home type moments and of my wife, along with me performing the song, stating that I am now aware of my mistakes and I see it clearly now, what really matters and the good I have right now”,  Nathan concludes.
