Critically-Acclaimed Performer Mara Levine's "You Reap What You Sow" offers an uplifting message of hope and renewed growth. The video accompanies the first song from Levine’s top-charting album Facets Of Folk, which is slated to be re-released on Bell Buckle Records in January 2021. Produced and directed by Bell Buckle Records CEO/Founder Valerie Smith, the "You Reap What You Sow” video features scenes of Levine filmed amidst sunflowers and wildflowers, interspliced with creative storyboarding and self-shot socially distant footage of bluegrass luminaries.
The video was shot by Valerie Smith at The Sunflower Garden, Westminster, MD https://www.thesunflowergarden.com/
Upon first hearing the song, written by Nashville songwriter Susan Shann, Levine was moved. "The entire song resonated with me as a positive message about doing your best at whatever you do and reaping the rewards or fruits of your labors,” Levine says. “One could also interpret the song to mean caring for others and nurturing relationships, in particular keeping your word and your commitments and that this will be returned to you in kind. I think that the message about caring for each other is timeless and important more than ever today. I hope that folks watching the video come away feeling positive, uplifted and inspired".
Co-produced in the studio by Mara Levine and Bob Harris (Vassar Clements), at Ampersand Records, Bridgewater NJ, the audio track showcases Mara’s warm, crystal clear lead vocals on an exquisite offering that features the musical talents of some very familiar names in bluegrass. Greg Blake and Mollie O’Brien(courtesy of Remington Road Records) provide harmony vocals; plus Bob Harris (Guitar), Rob Ickes (Dobro), Andy Leftwich (Mandolin), Mark Schatz (Bass), and Scott Vestal (Banjo).
