This video marked the first time The Bitter Southerner worked with the one-man video band known as Zach Wolfe.

Zach showed up with a mess of camera gear, rigged it up on Bains’ front porch in Atlanta’s Little Five Points. Lee played the song through fiercely three times, then took a walk around the ‘hood with Zach. A few days, we had this amazing performance in the can.

The song — “The Company Man” — is the leadoff track on Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires’ 2014 album, “Dereconstructed."
