Retro rocker JD McPherson, who hails from Broken Arrow, has released the music video to “Scratching Circles,” one of my favorite tracks on his breakout album “Signs & Signfiers.”
The black-and-white video was filmed in a place close to the Oklahoma native’s heart: historic Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa.
“Everyone from Hank Williams to the Sex Pistols have played there, and it continues to be an important cornerstone for live music in the U.S.,” McPherson told Rolling Stone, which debuted the video today. “I’m an Oklahoma guy, so for our first time playing Cain’s as a headlining act was a huge deal!”
McPherson has proven a popular pick on this year’s festival circuit, including the April 25-27 Norman Music Festival, where he will be among the headliners.
