RVA Magazine in Richmond debuted the new Shagwüf video I shot and directed. They interviewed me and Sally Rose about the Shagwüf debut album, our latest video starring Opal Lechmanski, and why demanding LGBTQ-friendly, all-inclusive shows is non-negotiable. Shagwüf will love you, baby. Shagwüf has love for all. Here is the video:
My new Wussy video shot with Brian Wimer debuted on Friday via the A.V. Club and it was quickly picked up by Paste Magazine as well. The video was shot in December in Croaker, Virginia near Williamsburg. Smithsonian Magazine recently ran an interesting feature article on the secret location. Here is our “cast and crew” photo and the video follows below:
I directed and edited this video with Brian Wimer. It is the title track from the new Sally Rose Band album “Gotta Be Gold” and we dusted an entire room with gold foil, glitter and confetti and sprinkled in some go-go dancers.
The AcoustIX video series I produced over 10 weeks this Fall has wrapped up for the year and the playlist of all of the performances can be found on the WTJU YouTube channel. This series was produced in part by a grant from Levitt Pavilions. I encourage you to vote for the IX Art Park in Charlottesville to host another 10-week concert series in the Fall of 2016 by going to the Levitt AMP polling page for WTJU.
This is the second video I have shot and directed for the upcoming Sally Rose Band album “Gotta Be Gold”. This one features IX Art Park Resident Artist Chicho Lorenzo painting a mural of the album comer that I shot.
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.

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.
