This fall I worked with Jon Paul, a talented singer songwriter, to produce promo photos and EP artwork for his debut release. Jon Paul and I spent an afternoon roaming the West Village looking for settings and light that would suit his music. After the sun went down we had a burger at the Corner Bistro and talked about NYC and music. It's a pleasure to collaborate with an artist who puts som much care and vision into their own projects - and the music, in my opinion, is excellent, establishing a clear identity that builds off songwriting influences such as Ray LaMontange, Paul Simon and James Taylor. Jon Paul will celebrating the release of the new EP at the Living Room this Sunday, December 18th at 7PM. The EP is also available on iTunes.
I was fortunate to work with Laura Cantrell on the album artwork for her new release, Kitty Wells Dresses: Songs of the Queen of Country Music. It's a beautiful album, a tribute to and exploration of the music of Kitty Wells, the first female country singer and songwriter to reach no. 1 on the country music charts. I'd highly recommend picking up a copy HERE. Laura had her CD release party at Hill Country in NYC last night. Below are images of the album artwork and a few images from the performance. Congrats Laura and good luck!
