12/1/23 - First public release of this Crankshaft mini-documentary which was originally for promotional purposes when Alex was being represented by Hello! Booking Agency.
Alexander Craig directed and edited "Old Missabe Road" for MorningBird last year during Mid-November. He mentions, "I'm really proud of how it turned out. Jill and Rob were total troopers performing in the cold and Jon Theis did an excellent job with the footage. All around this was a great project to be a part of. Check it out if you have time to give it your attention, the lyrics are really heavy, and the story has a lot of dimensions to it."
