There’s a saying “Don’t count the days, make the days count.” The average human lifespan is 30,000 days. That sounds like an endless amount of time to live our lives to the fullest, yet it’s a sad truth that many people at the end of their days look back with regret on things they never did. Allison Geddie is acutely aware of this, having been inspired by a dear friend Sandy Cooper who, according to Allison, “lived 21,659 days to the fullest.” With this in her head and heart, Allison penned her single “30,000 Days” after realizing she wanted to spend her 30,000 days inspiring others. In this uplifting new video, she does exactly that.
This supremely talented and motivated artist has been all over the globe in pursuit of her musical aspirations. She has worked with top name producers, the best players in the industry, and has been recognized with TV song placements (The View, All My Children), high profile opening spots for artists such as Blue Oyster Cult and Tristan Prettyman. Geddie’s signature style reveals itself in melodies and lyrics that often take unpredictable and surprising turns, riveting the listener with stunning depth, power, and beauty, haunting them for days and weeks to follow. Through her music, film, and humanitarian work, Allison inspires people to live life to its fullest and through that inspires the children of the future.
Such is the thrust of the new video for “30,000 Days”” The video is set in the heart of New York City where Allison grabs a bundle of poster board, markers, and sidewalk chalk and sets off on an adventure to find out what the rest of us want to do with our 30,000 days. Strangers become fast friends as Allison uses her charm and message to get to know the world around her. She begins in Central Park, works through the streets of Midtown, heads over the Williamsbrug, Times Square, and other NYC landmarks where each participant writes down their own aspirations one by one. Though they vary from the positive to the introspective, each and every sign tells a unique story about the person behind it.
