The Commander-In-Chief: Dropout

Filmed in Milan-Italy in May 2011, only days after she received her prototype Ibanez Falchion 7 guitar. This is the promo video for the Demo version of her song DROPOUT. Recorded in 2010, the song was RE-mixed by Pantera producer Sterling Winfield in 2011, when all the guitars were re-recorded at Alari Park Studios in Milan.
DROPOUT was written in Chicago in 2008, while The Chief attended High School there. More than 25 registered school kids/teens were killed in shootings that school year. But The Chief discovered that the ones that are Dropouts from the school system are not part of the statistics. She got so appalled that she wrote this song about the issue. This song is for all those who are "invisible" and have fallen outside the system.
All guitars and vocals by The Commander-In-Chief. Drums by Hans Menacho. Bass by Lance Morrison. Produced by The Commander-In-Chief. Re-mixed by Sterling Winfield. Mastering by Stephen Marsh.
The video was produced by Elia Turra in Italy.
Makeup by Chiara Guizetti, hair by Annalisa Massari.
The Chief has since the shooting of this video endorsed LANEY AMPS and is now the proud to play their IRONHEART amps!
