Channel Your Inner Child With The Roughhousers' Debut Single & Music Video, "Princess Mike"



Serving up a hot plate of nostalgia is the kid band for adults, The Roughhousers, with their debut feel-good single and accompanying music video, "Princess Mike."


The Roughhousers are Grey DeLisle and Eddie Clendening, along with featured musicians Deke Dickerson, Carl Sonny Leyland, Murry Hammond, and DJ Bonebrake. Together, they create cheeky, irreverent, rockabilly-inflected country-pop tunes for both children and adults to appreciate.


With impressive musical pasts from all members, there's no doubt why The Roughhousers have managed to become so successful in such a short period of time. The debut single, "Princess Mike," is a song about a beloved grownup who doesn't abide by typical gender roles and spreads good cheer wherever he goes.


Hitting play on the music video for "Princess Mike," the scene sets with a bearded Grey DeLisle riding a bike with Eddie Clendening. As we transition into a Barbie-esque pink house, both DeLisle and Clendening suit up in their best attire and float around the house while serenading us with their sweet, conceptual lullaby.

The giant teddy bear helps maintain the child-like theme, but the song's lyrics help adults find a few laughs. They also sit around a Victorian couch and armchair to emphasize the sense of nostalgia in both the visuals and their musical approach. As they head toward the outro with energy, The Roughhousers close the video on a humorous, loveable, and whimsical note.
