Charlotte singer-songwriter Bart Lattimore releases the ultimate 'dad' video

Posted By on Wed, Sep 20, 2017 at 1:09 PM

It's not often you run across a song that's just pure, 100-percent love — no sarcasm, no cynicism, no negativity of any kind. Bart Lattimore has managed to do that. There's little doubt that the well-loved Charlotte singer-songwriter's new video will only make him more well-loved.

The song, "That's What Daddies Do," is a moving tribute to the singer's daughter, Evie, and the video is a collaboration between Lattimore and Modern Primitives drummer Phillip Gripper, who recorded and mixed the song and also contributes percussion and glockenspiel.



In the video, Lattimore picks a Yamaha F325 and lovingly sings to Evie, who follows him around with her own little no-name flea-market acoustic.

"I wrote the song about six months before my daughter was born — hence the part about taking care of my pregnant wife," Lattimore tells CL. "I wanted to tell my story about fatherhood, from pregnancy on through raising our child.

"It's a short little ditty," he adds, joking, "but I figure that by the time she is all grown up, the song could be about two hours long."

Says Gripper, "Bart and I have been working on songs and videos, and this is our best yet. Bart is probably the best songwriter I know. Expect more from us."

Lattimore is in the process of recording his first full-length album.
