Sonoma-based singer-songwriter Garrett Pierce has a new album out next week on Crossbill Records called Dusk, and the first release, "Distant Thought," comes with this music video directed by Pierce featuring nature scenes shot on the Sonoma and Mendocino coasts, with an emphasis on mushroom foraging in the woods.

There are also a couple of pretty sunsets, and some deer lingering along a roadside.

Says Pierce, "This video was shot in my natural habitat — mushroom foraging in the redwood coast of Sonoma & Mendocino County. The lyrics for 'Distant Thought' were a dedication to the healing powers of this part of the state and so it seemed logical to shoot the video there. Winter used to be a depressing time for me when I first moved to the Bay Area, but now I look forward to hiking and discovering new mushrooms and bringing home my favorite edibles to have with dinner."
