The folks at PopMatters debuted the Chamomile & Whiskey video I shot with the band one evening in September. Simple concept, simple execution. One camera, one truck, a few dogs and a bunch of friends doing what they typically do most any given Saturday evening in Nelson County.
“Moonlight Silhouettes II” will be on display (and for sale, hint) in the Trager Brothers Coffee 2.0 space in the Rockfish Valley Community Center in Afton, VA from November 1st through December 30th. Join us on Saturday, November 5th from 6-9pm for a magical evening at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains for music, art & spirits. Nelson County’s own Sally Rose and Sweet Pete Stallings will play acoustic sets and refreshments will be served. All of the photographs will be available for purchase and 20% of all artwork sales will benefit the non-profit community organization Friends of Nelson.
I shot this video with Steve Barone using his old Super 8mm movie camera. It features clips of the band’s reunion show at the D4th of July celebration outside of the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis on July 4, 2015 as well as the only practice session for the show the day before. As Steve stated, “Lifter Puller does not advocate using Super 8 for anything because it is expensive as fuck to get it processed. Use Instagram.”
Chamomile & Whiskey had me in the studio with them in April as they recorded two new songs for a Fall 2015 release. Here’s a 10 minute look behind the scenes (including the rough mixes of the tunes) I put together with a little editing help from Marco Duran.
The “Moonlight Silhouettes” series is an official Community Exhibit in the international LOOK3 Festival of the Photograph this week in downtown Charlottesville.

More information on the entire festival can be found here :: LOOK3.
Last month I shot and recorded a video of Tim Barry playing “Solid Gone” off his new album “Lost & Rootless”. The piece was shot in the shed behind his house and the significance of the location is simply, that is where the album was actually recorded last winter. Also, here are some photos I took of Tim in concert playing earlier this week in Baltimore with his current tour mates Two Cow Garage opening the shows.
Chamomile & Whiskey had me in the studio with them this week as they attempted to record two new songs from scratch in two days. I will produce a short video piece on the process in the coming weeks but in the meantime, here is a sneak peek via a dozen or so photos :: Chamomile & Whiskey at Monkeyclaus Studio.
Cville Niche was kind of enough to do a “check-in” piece with me this week in advance of the “Moonlight Silhouettes” opening :: Cville Niche full article.
