This Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter sure cares a lot about Oklahoma.
Beau Jennings is a Tulsa native who holds on tightly to his roots.
We met him during the second day of Norman Music Festival 4.
His passion for music and our state can be heard in his song “The Verdigris” and will be seen in his upcoming film project “The Verdigris: In Search of Will Rogers.”
The film will trace the life of Rogers throughout the country.
Jennings’ mission is to keep Rogers’ life and impact alive.
If this interests you then check out the Kickstarter page and donate a few dollars to the film. There are only a few days left to do so. The film is a few thousand dollars short of its goal and time runs out on May 21.
Jennings has involved a lot of local talent in the making of the film.
The trailer reveals Chad and Jarod of Blackwatch Studios are working to make the film. The duo record a lot of great music in Norman. Also, Bradley Beesley is attached to the project. His documentary “The Fearless Freaks” expertly detailed the Flaming Lips’ rise to fame.
If anything, you should at least keep your eyes open for the release of this new film.
