The Pier’s Live Acoustic Series: From Conception to Creation
The vision of the Pier’s “Live Acoustic Series” is to provide Reggae-Rock fans with an intimate, stripped down acoustic experience featuring the genre’s most recognizable bands, along with some new faces. The concept is simple. First, get the genre’s best talent to play an acoustic version of a new or unreleased song. Second, create a production concept that is visually appealing and recognizable. Third, film the band’s performing the songs.
While the concept is simple, the execution is much more difficult. The Series required the coming together of a video director, crew, sound, venue, equipment, The Pier’s network, and, the bands—all with a common vision. Ultimately, this concept aims to produce quality music videos that are unmatched by any other outlet dedicated to covering Reggae-Rock.
The Debut: Cas Haley
The Pier is proud to feature Easy Star Record’s recording artist Cas Haley as the Series’ debut musician. The Pier specifically targeted Haley as the debut artist because of his natural fit for the Series’ overall vision—namely, a musician known for delivering solid acoustic sets. In addition to Haley’s natural fit, he is also working on his second full-length album—meaning there were several new songs to debut for the Series.
