New Video From Sam Russell & The Harborrats — Born to Hurt

sam russell born to hurt video

Seattle rockers Sam Russell & the Harborrats just came out with a new video for their song “Born to Hurt”. It’s a cool video for a cool song. It was filmed in Pioneer Square, shot & edited by Joshua Devenere.

The video takes place at a wedding. There is dancing, and singing, and drinking, and drugs, and cake, and ghosts… whoops! I’ve said too much.

Now is a very good time for you to watch it. And while you do, be on the look out for yours truly. I’m in there. I play the part of the mopey lonely guy without a wedding date. A small but critical role.

Did you see me? My guess is no. Let me take this opportunity to point myself out to you. I appear exactly in eleven shots throughout the video (including the credits).

At least most of my name was spelled correctly.


It is really great to be a part of such a cool project.  I had a blast. My only regret is that I should have eaten more cake.
