Ms. Rachel Pearl. I met a really cool artist at the Elephant Talk Indie Music Festival this past weekend in Atlantic City. She’s an up & coming singer-songwriter with an old school jazzy voice that’s so lovely. I couldn’t get enough of it since discovering her a few days ago. She sang some of her original material, such as “Baby Blue,” “Hello, Officer” and did fantastic covers to Katy Perry, Britney Spears & Peggy Lee’s “I’m a Woman.”
Check out some of my favorite youtube videos here: (I love these!!)
Charming & stylish.
That uk!!! Plus the lyrics are so cute.
Her official music video for single “Like A Video”.
Friend and music partner, Merry Ellen Kirk, also traveled from Nashville, TN for the festival. Both of these ladies definitely were my favorite out of all the acts represented because I felt they truly embodied what true music artistry is all about. Merry Ellen Kirk’s voice was simply beautiful.
Her music video for “Blinding Me”. She sang this live and everyone was so deeply tuned in throughout her entire segment. It was refreshing to say the least. After one of her songs, Rachel, who sang with her proudly whispered to me, “That’s MY friend.” 🙂

I shot these images a couple weeks ago in NY of my buddies from Stereo Crowd; since I’ve left Atlantic City and finally settled a bit in Switzerland, I’ve had time to fully focus on uploading these pics here. This is my second time working with t
he guys. A very spontaneous shoot truly done in an impromptu fashion. Decided to meet up just the day before. No MUA or stylist at the rehearsal studio.
Last week, I did a photo shoot for “Stereo Crowd” in Queens, NY. I’ve been up on these guys for a minute since seeing them live at The East Harlem Riviera last year. It definitely felt great reconnecting, meeting new band members and the photo experience in general was so much fun! Everyone was so patient and took my direction wonderfully. I’d only done the lighting technique on myself alone at home with a self timer, so I wasn’t sure what would come from this session. We began shooting around 11pm and finished around 3am. No make-up artists, stylists or photo assistants on set, just Stereo Crowd, my camera, light and me. Gracias books, chairs ladders (and Stereo Crowd!) for helping to keep my camera steady since I didn’t have a tripod. (And a special gracias to my buddy LA photog Jon Genius for the light he left behind. I used it on Chavon! :~)
