My video for Wussy’s “North Sea Girls” won a Cincinnati Entertainment Award for video of the year. Skyline Chili for everyone on me!
Wrapped up Day 2 of the Lauren Hoffman / The Secret Storm video shoot at IX Art Park by bringing in some lovely and talented people. Without giving away too much of the premise, fire-eating and breathing by Opal with burlesque performance by Deepa de Jour from Richmond VA. The album is still in the mixing process with a late Spring / early Summer release date to be determined.
Batesville Market, the coolest country store in all of Virginia is back in business and they are hosting an exhibit of 16 of my photographs. When they invited me to do the show I took a cue from the new Batesville Market t-shirts with the “LOCAL” logo emblazoned on the front and decided to tailor the theme around my favorite recent portraits of local musicians, performers and friends. There will be a small, informal First Fridays opening from 4-6pm on January 2nd and the photographs will be up in the store throughout the month of January. Do yourself a favor and get out of town for a couple hours, enjoy the scenic drive into the country and grab one of their delicious fried bologna sandwiches and some homemade mac ‘n’ cheese!
Of all the musicians I have met and shot over the last couple years, right at the top of the “nice guys” list is Rhett Miller of the Old 97’s. Here is a set of 25 photos from last night’s show at the Jefferson Theater with my good buddy Sally Rose opening :: :: Old 97’s and Sally Rose Band ::
