Music Video: A Warrior's Journey (Philo)
A Warrior's Journey is a song written, performed and produced by Philo featuring the vocals of Hilary Beckett. The track was inspired in part by the life of Bruce Lee and samples his voice in the production:
"I hope you don't mind if we move our man there, so that the two of us have more room to groove."

-The video footage featured in this video is footage I recorded while riding the subway visiting New York. New York is a city full of amazing moments and instances that are exceptional but so common that they aren't always appreciated. A city full of landmarks and iconic imagery, something as hum drum as a Subway ride is relegated to the unremarkable.
But to an outsider, it can be magical. The act of emerging from under Manhattan Island over the bridge to Brooklyn reveals all the glory of the city to your eyes. New York is a place that can render you infinitely small, while contrarily elevating your spirit to feel infinitely important as you recognize yourself as being a part of it's esteemed energy and importance.
I wrote this upon return to Victoria, but I tapped into that energy I had felt and was inspired by it. I do my best to convey that feeling in the 2nd verse. Warrior's Journey was a beat I had made some time ago, that nobody ever chose to rock, which was disappointing because I loved it so much. So I rocked it. Hilary Beckett added the perfect touch to the song, and her vocal work in addition to the chorus brought a great dynamic to my production. Hope you dig it.
