Supergroup Filthy Friends’ second album, ‘Emerald Valley,’ required a bigger roll out than their debut, so I hopped in and made a few video assets for the album. This lyric video for “November Man” was one of the few that got published.
Kill Rock Stars pulled out all the stops to promote Filthy Friends‘ second album, ‘Emerald Valley,’ and I added to the effort where I could. For this piece, I took some of the album art components and made this video loop over the lead single, “Last Chance County.”
“Girl Germs” is a five part podcast series about Bratmobile’s seminal riot grrrl album, ‘Pottymouth,’ that I helped produce for Kill Rock Stars along with The Future of What team. Over the course of the five episodes, the original members of the band reminisce about the album’s creation and the times surrounding its release with […]
Emily Heller (Barry) recorded her second album, ‘Pasta,’ for Kill Rock Stars at Curious Comedy Theater in Portland, OR, in January of 2018. I worked with her over the next couple of months to complete the final comp of the album that was released in November. Turns out Patton Oswalt enjoyed the album, as did […]
In the opening moments of her album, ‘Pasta,’ comedian Emily Heller explains why she makes jokes at awkward times, and why she’s fallen silent in the age of Trump.
Comedy duo, Frangela, talk a lot about the current political climate on their Kill Rock Stars debut, ‘Resist!,’ but this piece isn’t just leftist whining… it offers a profound suggestion on how to navigate the day to day.
Released just ahead of the band’s eighth (or nineth?) record, ‘Accustomed To Your Face,’ the video for Kinski’s “Guest Girl Vocalist” captures the band in their raw, natural state on stage thanks to footage shot by Matt Howl, and the quick edits and post-production trickery that I brought to the table.
After touring the U.S. throughout the spring and summer of 2018, Horse Feathers returned to Oregon to play a handful of shows with their Astoria compatriots Blind Pilot. I caught up with the band at their Aladdin Theatre show in Portland, and shot their full show with my phone, and turned the footage into the tour trailer you see above.
Dana Gould (Simpsons, Seinfeld, Stan Against Evil) recorded his Kill Rock Stars debut, ‘Mr. Funny Man,’ in the always pleasurable Columbia City Theater in Seattle, WA on May 3, 2017. I had the pleasure of working with Dana to comp the evening’s two shows into one cohesive hour that was completely airtight. If you’ve ever […]
Using some footage that I shot in Portland’s Alameda neighborhood, on some Independence Day, many years ago, I put together this lyric video for Elliott Smith’s “Bottle Up And Explode! (Alternate Version),” which appears on the bonus disc of the recently released “Either/Or: Expanded Edition.”
During the remixing and mastering process of Elliott Smith’s ‘Either/Or: Expanded Edition,’ Larry Crane dug portions of the Elliott Smith archive out of storage to check new mixes against old, etc. While the tapes were in town, I set-up a shoot with them at Jackpot! Studios. One of my photos ended up in the final packaging, and the same one appeared in issue #118 of Tape Op Magazine.
Using the previously unreleased track “I Figured You Out” (debuted at The New York Times) and a handful of previously unseen photos of ‘Either/Or’ era Elliott Smith — taken from the personal archive of original publicist, Felice Ecker — I made a short trailer for the ‘Either/Or: Expanded Edition’ package.
