Mike Edel: “The Closer”

“The Closer” is a new song by Mike Edel and a music video created out of collaboration with Jorge R. Canedo Estrada, Henrique Barone, Thanat Sattavorn, Cesar Martinez and Breno Licursi.

The song tells a story inspired by Edel’s own life:

It’s a story about a pitcher in a small town, a lot like the one I grew up in, who is pitching a perfect game into the 9th inning. But his mom runs onto the mound and tells him that he needs to leave the game because his dad has had a farming accident. So the coach brings in the closer with a 2-0 lead in the 9th inning. He gives up a walk. Then a single. Then a home-run. They lose the game 3-2 in the 9th.

Despite that bummer ending, it’s an oddly uplifting music video.
