LifeInASong_UK

Bedfordshire alt-country/folk outfit CC Smugglers have released the brand new video for their latest single ‘Dirty Money’.

In the words of lead vocalist & songwriter Richie Prynne: “The song is about remembering that even though in today’s consumer-driven world, it’s easy to think that having enough money will make you happy. Happiness is a state of mind, not a collection of possessions or a certain number in your bank account.

As touring musicians trying to make a name for ourselves this is very competitive and demanding industry, it is important to remember. Someone recently said to me “Richie, why the hell are you writing songs like this, we badly need some more money.” My response is, yes a business needs capital, but if I really needed money, I would probably go and get a job that paid lots.

Happiness goes way deeper than business capital and I think it’s good to remind ourselves. This song is us reminding ourselves.”

The band also recently announced a UK tour in October/November, following a run of festival dates this summer including appearances at Cambridge Folk Festival, Cropredy Festival and Montreux Jazz Festival.
