“Ohio, I’ll Be Fine,” Kramies’ first official video of 2021, is a beautiful example of the emotional potency he’s become known for. Taken from the highly anticipated forthcoming Kramies EP, “Ohio, I’ll Be Fine” taps into Kramies’ past, the lyrics unflinchingly facing his personal demons.
Produced by and featuring Jerry Becker of Train, as well as Jim Bogios of Counting Crows, “Ohio, I’ll Be Fine” combines the artistry of these three creative minds into a wonderfully detailed, emotionally resonant song. Clocking in at a concise three minutes, the song’s animated video casts a warm, nostalgic light on the song’s lyrical imagery, lifting your spirits while tugging on your heartstrings.
As a natural next step in a long and storied artistic career, “Ohio, I’ll be Fine” stands among Kramies’ best work to date, showcasing his knack for bringing together the personal and the universal into addictive, accessible folk-pop.
