Mark Nelsen Releases New Music Video - Tennessee Valley

Mark Nelsen Releases New Music Video - Tennessee Valley

​San Francisco based folk musician, Mark Nelsen has released a new music video for his new country single, ​​Tennessee Valley​. Nelsen is a founding member of the neo psych band, Electric Shepherd, but even after breaking away from the heavy psych rock sound of his full band, Nelsen's sound is very diverse within the realm of his own solo work. His previous release, Homeward was an ode to space travel and self discovery, embodying far out, reverbed and electric guitar compositions. His new single, Tennessee Valley / Girl from Mendo​ is a stripped down country record.

Nelsen is always going to have a very traditional almost Appalachian folk undertone to his music, but ​Tennessee Valley​ (which is no where near Appalachia) just came outright with a simple and unapologetic country folk style. It will be interesting to hear what genre Mark Nelsen touches on next.​ -je
