Jeff Tynan "Better I Was" (Official Music Video)

THE VIDEO: (directed by Max Miller)
Shot partly in Fitzroy (Melbourne, Australia) juxtaposed with the uniquely Australian rural scenery of North Western Victoria, displaying eye catching natural colour & light. Earthy scenes complement real sounds in this clip to carry a blend of raw emotions through actor John Teague's journey of a lifetime.

THE SONG:
"Better I Was" is 1 of many highlights on the EP for which Jeff has helped create an equally emotional video. Inspired by 8 years of teaching at a Melbourne school for disadvantaged kids, loved one's experiences with mental illness & addiction, the recent passing of both Jeff's Mother & life/music mentor - the song speaks of regret, doubt, grief, loss of trust, loss of innocence & loss of any sense of reality & what's important in life in this modern age.
