Directed by Grant Dillion, Joshua Harrison and Blake Lewandoski, Truby wrote the song as a letter to his children.
Little Rock, AR (November 28, 2012) – Last week JASON TRUBY (P.O.D., Living Sacrifice), released his fifth solo album, Our Time Here and today debuts the first music video from the project for the song, “No Matter Where You Are.”
“’Now Matter Where You Are’ began in an unusual way,” says Truby, explaining the story behind the song. “We had a very dear friend pass away this year unexpectedly. While we were at the funeral I was taken back by the influence our friend had and the impression he left for his family. I know as a father that the grace and instruction I give should be the same as I receive from my Father in Heaven. I was compelled to write for my children a song about how to live each day and remind them that they are never on their own, no matter where they are. It is a song of assurance and guidance, in some ways from a father to children, and in others from the Creator to His children. The song in its nature is childish, and I love that because it is for my children; however it is profound in that it takes a life time to spiritually understand as we did when we were children ourselves. I’m just glad I am here to sing it with them."
Honing his skill in award-winning bands Living Sacrifice and P.O.D., Truby has made quite a name for himself. His songwriting has been featured on the best-selling soundtracks for the films Matrix Reloaded and The Passion of the Christ and in 2004 he was featured on the cover of Finger Style Magazine next to music legend Chet Atkins. Since leaving P.O.D. in 2006, Truby has written and recorded five of his own albums, including 2010’s Christmas project, The Greatest Love, showcasing the finger-style guitar playing he has become known for. Additionally, the entire catalog of his instrumental music has been added to Guitar Genius Radio. Truby began co-writing with and producing other artists in 2009 and just recently finished work on a special benefit compilation for the adoption-awareness non-profit, Project Zero, featuring top artists from around the country.
