New Music Video Features Livingston and West Orange Towns and Residents

January 11, 2014 at 6:55 AM

LIVINGSTON, NJ - In December, The Alternative Press of Livingston and TAP West Orange shared a story with readers about Livingston residents Jen “YogaJen” Gold Shulman, and her husband David Ross, founder of Reviver Music, LLC, who were filming a music video for the current single, “What If,” in the area for singer Samantha Landrum, who is signed to a seven-record and management deal with Reviver. This week, the video was released, and since its release, local residents and fans have been sharing the video via Facebook, and buying the single on iTunes or Amazon.

The video, which Shulman, who grew up in West Orange, directed, includes cameos of Shulman’s yoga students, such as: the Synchroettes, who she trains with yoga, and Livingston High school juniors: Natalie Simon, Lindsay Wishnew, Maggie Werner, Danielle Kornbluh, Rebecca Sorkin and Ali Ruchman. It also showcases the town of Livingston, Livingston High School and West Orange’s Codey Arena.

“After seeing the video, I have such chills,’ said Lindsay Wishnew, a LHS student with a cameo in the video. “Samantha's voice is so unique and beautiful. She deserves so much success. The video is incredible and very well done.”

“I am so proud to officially share Samantha Landrum's new video for her current (amazing) single "What If," and I thank everyone who allowed us to film them last month,” said Shulman.

Right now, over 200 country radio stations plus SiriusXM are playing “What If.” So far, Landrum’s video has been well received, and Landrum will be doing a radio promo tour and performing on the west coast from January 25 - January 30. Landrum’s debut CD Hometown comes out on March 18—just in time for her 20th birthday.

There are a lot of body parts I’m not particularly happy with (you thighs know who you are), but the one part of me I’ve never been bothered by is my feet. Not to be conceited, but I’ve always thought I had pretty nice feet, as far as feet go. They are not too fat or too thin, my arches are not too high or too low, and my toes all line up nicely in descending order. I ...
