Hi all, I am Jan Ovland,singer & songwriter out of Norway - In these times of "UBER or not to UBER" ,I have written a song - YELLOW CAR - that I am about to share with you ! - recorded it with my band,The Commodities and produced a music video,
filmed in Norway,New York City and Chiang Mai/Thailand - all because I wanted to " pay homage to the taxi drivers of the world ! " and their wheels,that sometimes happen to be yellow !
Back in the day,flying in to JFK,I was soon introduced to the Checker taxi of New York City - back then , in the mid 80´s, I did not think to much of it - now,some thirty years later and for quite some time - the Checker taxi has become an american icon , just like Harley-Davidson and Coca Cola -
Originally coming out of Chicago,the Checker taxi of NYCity,made sure that it´s passengers came from A to B - in a zip , most of the time anyway :) before long,the yellow taxi spread all over - today,
you will find a yellow taxi service , on all continents of the world - having been in quite a few of them myself,I would like to use this opportunity to say,with my song YELLOW CAR , a big thank you, to you all !
The song can be downloaded from Amazon,cdbaby,Spotify,iTunes,Facebook , just to mention a few - enjoy !
The track is arranged and produced by Ole C. - Mr. Jan and J.A.Narum
