Oil House Records Announces The Release Of Country Artist Tim Sweeney's Ground-Breaking Music Video Featuring American Sign Language On YouTube

PASADENA, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week was a huge week for new country music artist, Tim Sweeney. He released his debut country album, This Time, on iTunes and he attended the Premiere of his first music video, "Baby I Try For You" at Arclight Cinemas to a standing room only crowd, hosted by celebrity hair stylist, Ken Paves. The Premiere began with Paves moderating a 35-minute discussion between singer/songwriter Sweeney and Director Jules Dameron about the making of the groundbreaking country music video featuring American Sign Language, followed by the showing of the video - https://www.youtube.com/user/timsweeneyofficial.

Sweeney wrote "Baby I Try For You," as a tribute for his son who was born with Down syndrome and Autism and never developed the ability to talk. At the premiere, Sweeney shared that he used to sing his son to sleep by singing "Home on the Range," but after singing it hundreds of times, he started writing other songs to sing to him. Sweeney recalled that for years he never even wrote the lyrics for "Baby I Try For You" down on paper, but sang it to his son every night. After several years, he wrote it down and threw it in a drawer for ten more years.

Paves mentioned the growing popularity of American Sign Language ("ASL") but lauded Sweeney for including ASL "not just as an accessory to a story, but [as] a character in your story." Paves continued, "I think country music is the foundation of storytelling in America and [the video] shows you can cross all boundaries... and recognize that there are 40 million deaf and hard of hearing people in America who enjoy music."  Sweeney emphasized, "Like some people, I knew sign language existed, but I didn't know to what extent it was actually so beautiful in its interpretation and storytelling."
