2015 Chronological Recap

2015 was perhaps the most intense year for me so far, full of personal development and I'm thankful and in awe of having gone through so much.

January - I get back together with my friend Gaetano and we collaborate in the twisted track "Paint", putting down the foundation for our EP collaboration. His studio partner Chris is insane, and an immense influence. We have a night that goes down in history. Meanwhile I'm looking for members for my band, and go through hundreds of auditions. Patrick visits from NY


February - I get back together with Ali and we play our first show as a band in Cafe 1001 along with Marcin, in our first show together. Ali abandons his guitar amp at mine in what will become the center of much drama.

 

March - I meet with Bruno Wizard and through him I meet Danae, editor at DNA magazine where she offers to run a cover story. We shoot the pictures on polaroid. 2 elements converge that will be basic for my artistic exploration: Polaroids and Fat White Family. My mom comes to visit and I find the infamous white wedding gown that is a vintage Dior in a little shop in Columbia Flower Market. I meet Nina from Rompclothing who makes me my signature green emerald rockstar dress

April - I get ready for my trip to LA and it is the best trip of my life, serendipity ensues. My friend Manuel is there, my friend Ali comes over at the same time, I get to ride a yellow convertible and road trip north and south. I get together with old friends like Jesse, am whisked around by art studio director Julio and meet Brad T. who takes a series of unforgettable photos, one of which will become the cover of my EP. Meanwhile at the studio I start producing my album with Gaetano.
