Mental Media

Mental Media A partnership between three friends focused on helping musicians, artists, and businesses get quality videos and photos at an affordable price.

Mental Media is a partnership between Jared Phelps, Cameron Gillispie, and Rankin Barger that was founded in June 2015. Mental media was founded on two principles. First as a way to help growing and established musicians in Oklahoma and surrounding states reach a bigger audience. Second, we saw a market that was full of production and media companies gouging musicians for every dime they have. We know all the hard work and struggle that goes into playing shows on the road, making an album, and promoting your band. we strive to provide our clients with top quality media at prices that are more reasonable to their budget. Our goal is to take some of the work off artists hands and let them focus on their passion. While the three of us come from different backgrounds in media we all share one common passion. MUSIC. Between the three of us we have done every aspect of music from offstage to onstage. Our experience ranges from working with musicians to film and television productions.

Mission: Mental Minds think alike.

Love at First Song • Coco & Darla

Check out our boi Mudflaps Gillispie on Love at First Song • Coco & Darla

Our computer suddenly developed epilepsy and has hindered our editing process the past three days, SO we can't put out Ep. 2 Feat. Cameron "Mudflaps" Gillispie yet...

BUT we can put this ridiculous teaser video out.

We decided to hang out post-recording and it obviously went hilariously downhill fast.

We will let you know when Ep. 2 is coming out!! Promise!

// Letting Go // Giakob Lee

Giakob Lee is quickly becoming a recognized name in the Oklahoma music scene. His songs have themes of redemption, time and the importance of others run throughout Giakob's music, and because of his experiences, the music cuts directly to the point. In this video Giakob plays an original titled "Letting Go."

//The Witness// Sisterman

Our beautiful friends SISTERMAN are honoring Fleetwood Mac classic album “Rumours” which was released 42 years ago today 🔮. They will be releasing a video covering a song off that iconic album. This is a solid choice for Sisterman. After we shot this video for "The Witness" the first thing we all said was that it reminded us of Fleetwood Mac. So head over to their IG tonight (link below) and hit the link in their profile to see what song they cover!
You can also feast your eyes on this video we shot of them last year by hitting up our website or YouTube channel!

We dropped our first videos with Jason Michael two years ago today!
Performing since the age of 15, Jason has done it all musically. He has formed various bands ranging from rock to funk. Recorded albums at the legendary Pedernales Recording Studio in Texas and with Rick Parasher up in Seattle. He even recorded an Emmy winning theme-song for Clifford the Big Red Dog. Today Jason focuses more on his songwriting. He engages his crowds with his powerful voice and making deep, intimate connections with others through his music. We have a handful of videos with Jason up on our website and YouTube channel!


Chloe-Beth - Empathy

Chloe's boundless energy makes her a joy to be around, and she transfers that same energy into her songwriting and performance.

Coming off her first full-length record "Remnant" that released last year, the sky is the limit for this young singer/songwriter.

// My Finest Hour // Levi Parham

We first met Levi Parham in 2015 at the Illinois River Jam Levi was the first musician that we worked with that wasn’t an artist that we previously knew. We were blown away by his music and instantly became friends. Since then we have watched Levi grow and become a force of nature in the Oklahoma music scene. Levi was kind enough to make the trip to Guthrie and perform a couple of originals for us. This one is titled “My Finest Hour.”
