Video Week: Aaron Gillespie, 'We Were Made For You'
If this doesn't look like your average local music video, that's because Aaron Gillespie isn't your average local artist. Formerly the founding drummer of Tampa metalcore legends Underoath, and the frontman of his own alt-pop band The Almost, Gillespie has released his first solo album, Anthem Song, an unabashedly Christian pop effort that has been earning solid reviews across the board.
Gillespie, who lives in north Pinellas County, shot parts of the clip on a mission trip to Haiti following the 2010 earthquake. Alternative Press says the clip is something of a preview of a documentary due for release this summer. The song itself is catchy enough -- if you missed it when it was offered as a free iTunes download a couple of months ago, click here to buy it.
