New Bandwagon With Melissa Payne & James McKenty Filmed In Camper Van At Folk Festival

Bandwagon's latest episode features Melissa Payne and James McKenty performing "Shake Me" in a Volkswagen bus at the Peterborough Folk Festival earlier this year.

"Melissa and James have both been featured before by us—James with the Spades, and Mel with Express & Co.—but this is something new and neat," Bandwagon producer Ryan Lalonde tells PTBOCanada.

Also, music personality Ken Elrick was kind enough to let them borrow his famous Patch Bus for the shoot.

Peterborough-based songwriter Melissa Payne has a new album out High and Dry, her second full-length album. Payne and her five-piece band play with passion and graceful restraint that speaks to the ebb-and-flow pacing of life, especially the Millennial-age relationships and struggles that inspired much of her writing on the album.
 
"Bring Me Back", the second single off of High & Dry—which she performed on Episode 4 of PTBOCanada Live With Mike Judson—was produced by Blue Rodeo's Greg Keelor and James McKenty from Seventh Fire Records. The song was a natural choice for Melissa and videographer Rob Viscardis to put to film and you'll see why in this excellent video below...
