THE WILEY ONE’S WORLD PREMIER MUSIC VIDEO!!!
~By Wendy & Greg Zangari
We were contacted this past week in regards to a collaboration with a band called “The Wiley One” based out of Phoenix, Arizona. They saw our website and the message we try to convey to all of you and really enjoyed what we had to say. This in turn compelled them to contact us and collaborate our messages, which is one in the same, and why they chose Ready For The Shift to co-launch the premier of their outstanding new music video for their song, “UFO Man”.
We want peace among races, from near and far, we want to know our galactic neighbors and perhaps even work in harmony with them as well, in the near future. We want all of the human race to love themselves and others and be good to all, equally, as we are not so different. Just like we said the other day, a smile goes a long way.
We spoke with one of their band representatives, Tanya Connor, to start this venture, to let all of humanity and all beings in the cosmos, know that WE ARE ONE! “The Wiley One” has a very eclectic sound with Acoustic, Hip Hop, Blues, Reggae, Folk, Ska and more, which is under an Indie label signed by Sundawg Records.
They have a very tight knit group comprised of four members, The No 7 Kid (Singer/Songwriter, Sam Wiley) on Guitar and Lead vocals, Jay of the Funk on Bass and Back up vocals, Emcee Criterion as their M.C., Beat Box and Back up Vocalist, and Josh Montag on Drums.
This band seems to thrive on creativity! What makes this premier presentation so interesting, is that they made a decision to incorporate marionettes into this music video. Professional puppet maker and puppeteer, Dennis Eustace, made these marionettes and used the band’s vision to create the puppets, which reflect the likeness of the band themselves! Although we have never seen them live, it feels and sounds like they put on one amazing show!
We also spoke to Sam Wiley on Friday to discuss their launch of their new video, “UFO Man”, in honor of World UFO Day today. Please enjoy the premier of their new video “UFO Man”, a track from their February 14th, 2012 release of the Album “Kill it With Love”. We believe that this wonderful video will assist The Wiley One in spreading the word that we want to globally emit peace and love in the Multiverses and all throughout the Cosmos.
Have a wonderful day celebrating this spectacular “World UFO Day” event! More on the World UFO Day event, including a promotional video, can be found at the bottom of this article.
The Wiley One to release new music video on World UFO Day
“Dear Mr. UFO Man”, – We’ve been waiting for you.
Arizona Hip-Hop Groove band, “The Wiley One”, is set to release their brand new music video for their track “UFO MAN”. The video is scheduled to release on World UFO Day, Monday July 2nd, 2012.
The Pheonix based band that worked side by side with Sundawg Media and professional puppet maker and puppeteer Dennis Eustace to create an astonishing reproduction of each band member in the form of 20 inch tall puppets.
“It was a group effort. We gave Dennis photos of each band member, descriptions of our personalities and the instruments we play and he built these unbelievable puppets for us,” Lead singer Sam Wiley said. “After extremely long hours of building the set, props, backdrops, sewing the clothes and creating the story board, we then had to learn how to be puppeteers.”, Sammy said laughingly. “I don’t think we had any idea what we we’re getting ourselves into, but damn we pulled it off”.
Track 4 off the newly released record “Kill it with Love”, “UFO MAN” is a story about a man who desperately wants a UFO to take him away from this planet to explore the universe, but he can’t leave until he picks up the girl he loves. The song has a positive acoustic hip-hop vibe to it and was written by lead singer/guitarist Sam Wiley and produced by multi-platinum producer Gardner Cole.
With “UFO MAN”, The Wiley One band wanted to take a controversial topic of discussion in 2012 and put a positive and fun spin on it. They have strategically placed a few subliminal messages and signs in the video to entice any avid UFO enthusiast and also plan on partnering with grassroots UFO organizations to help spread the video around the world.
We just wanted to be creative, have fun and do something different,” Sammy said. “We love to challenge ourselves in this digital age of do it yourself music videos, so we had fun being artistic with the project.” “We barely slept 10 hours over the course of three days filming this video, but it was so fun and well worth it.” “Besides, we still have our puppets so who knows what we will use them for in the future.”
The Wiley One’s music video for “UFO MAN” is scheduled to drop on “World UFO Day”, July 2, 2012. The video will be hosted on the band’s Youtube page and the song is currently available for purchase on iTunes.
