The Devil Haunts Bourbon Street In Jeff Tuohy’s New Music Video

Saturday, July 3, 2021 | Music

Are you ready to travel to a deadly New Orleans?

Jeff Tuohy’s new music video, THE DEVIL’S IN NEW ORLEANS, will take you there, mixing genres, moods, and messages to deliver a swampy, bluesy feast for the ears that would make Marie Laveau proud. The video is entirely animated by Marcus Guio and the pair make an unforgettable team.

Visually, we’re treated to a black and white spook show that recalls Max Fleisher’s classic take on “Minnie The Moocher,” The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari, and elements of The Muppets Take Manhattan, wrapping them in a Southern Gothic framework. “The pandemic made the prospect of filming this video a logistical nightmare. Animation afforded an opportunity to manifest the imagery the song conjured in my head,” say Tuohy. “The entire collaboration was via email between a Portuguese-speaking animator, Marcus Guio of São Paulo’s 77 Marcus, and me, an English-speaking musician. I detailed a storyline and frames down to the second and he executed the vision.”
