Pianist Jennifer Thomas just set her piano on fire for a music video! “I had this old antique seven-foot Behr Brothers piano that I’ve actually used for four music videos where we had to film outside. We’ve taken it out on the beach and into the forest. It’s gotten covered in sand and mud, and I really didn’t care about it,” she stated. It’s all in promotion for The Fire Within which was shot in the middle of one of California’s desserts.

As you can imagine the responses from viewers as been mixed to which Thomas response is, “I think it’s important to encourage artists to express themselves in their music as well as their videos, and to trust their choices. The creation of music is not only an expression of creativity and beauty for others to enjoy, but for most artists it’s also a telling of their own personal stories and struggles in their lives behind the music.”
