Old Dominion Video ‘Forever Changed’ Lead Singer Matthew Ramsey

Celebrity men’s groomer, Jason Schneidman, is the focal point and inspiration of the moving video for Old Dominion's latest single, “Some People Do.” Schneidman, who also works with Old Dominion, was previously homeless and, after overcoming drug addiction, turned his life around. In his spare time, he helps out the homeless of LA, providing haircuts as a means to connect with those who may be battling addiction issues, and funds scholarships to rehab centers. Back in early February, the band joined him in Venice Beach, CA to help out and collect the footage that ultimately became the “Some People Do” video.

Old Dominion lead singer Matthew Ramsey describes the experience of making this clip as life-changing. He tells us: “I’m so proud of this video and it was tough at the beginning to just you know push yourself past that comfort zone and all your preconceived notions of what these people are going to be like. You know, when you push past that awkward moment and you speak to them you realize they’re just humans just like you and they’re good people. And, you know they might be a little down on their luck. Who hasn’t been? So, they were just so appreciative of any effort to recognize that they were a person. I will forever be changed by that day.”

Old Dominion will perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden tonight (Monday, May 18th) on CBS.
