1. Filmed live with 7 cameras, The Restoration perform "Drowning Mr. & Mrs. Palmer" at Jam Room Studio in Columbia, SC on May 7, 2009. The song is part of songwriter Daniel Machado's fictional "Vale family" series, this installment’s narrative taking place in 1930 in Lexington, South Carolina. The lyrics explore the explosive result of generations of racism, social repression and religious hypocrisy in the South.

    7 camera operators and an array of microphones captured the live audio and video of the performance.

    Cory Plaugh engineered, mixed and mastered the audio from the session. http://www.myspace.com/coryplaugh

    Jacob Carter, Jessica Labbé, Brian Lord, Jeremiah Redmond, Ben Reynolds, Bekah Rice and David Stringer took part in pre-production cinematography meetings with the band and served as camera operators on the night of the shoot.

    The small, sweaty studio was packed with 5 musicians, 7 camera operators, 1 sound engineer and 3 pizzas. We hope you enjoy the results.

    The Restoration are:
    Adam Corbett – bass organ, tom percussion
    Lauren Garner – lead violin
    Sharon Gnanashekar – piano
    Eddie Lord – drums
    Daniel Machado – vocals, rhythm violin

    About the characters:
    Thomas Vale (the song's narrator) is the son of Constance and Aaron Vale (Aaron is the ill-fated narrator of the song "Constance"). Constance and Aaron's marriage in 1901 was met with much resistance in the community as Aaron was of mixed ancestry. Ethelinda and John Gilead Palmer were among those who saw the Vale's union as unsavory, however in 1910 they hired Aaron to construct their new home as a gesture to Constance's father, who worried about his daughter's financial woes. The Palmers were best known in Lexington for fronting the funds to rebuild St. Stephen's Lutheran Church after it was burned in 1865 during the Civil War.
