The combination of Aristotle Jones’s smooth, mellow voice and his warm acoustic guitar is at the heart of this personal and soulful ballad. The accompanying video for ‘Streets of Osage’, created by William Walker Films, takes the viewer on a trip to Scott’s Run Annual Street Fair in Osage, WV and the Scott’s Run Museum and Trail. We get a charming glimpse of life in Jones’s home town as he sings alongside Rock n' Soul Singer and town historian, Al Anderson. It’s delightful to see the joy that Jones takes in his performance; his smile is broad as he plays and performs and takes us on a trip round town. Together with the lyrics, the video creates a real sense of place and history effectively.
