asa

while we were shooting the first look, i asked asa (pronounced “asha”) if she would sing while i shot.  she was quiet and a little shy, so i figured puttin her in her element might help her feel more comfortable.  the second she started her song, everyone in the studio froze in their tracks like they were playing red light/green light, completely mesmerized.  she has THAT kind of voice.  i got some great pictures – and she got a new fan.

HERE is the piece on the MTV Iggy website.

here are a couple of my favorite asa songs:

BE MY MAN

FIRE ON THE MOUNTAIN

the rubberbandits want to fight your father

DJ willie o’dea jay pointed to mr. chrome and said in his thick irish accent, “you’ve got muscles – but your muscles don’t say, ‘i’ll punch your face,’ your muscles say, ‘i’ll cut your face.”  then he pointed to me and said, “you too.  you’ve got the face-cuttin muscles.  you know what i mean.”  that’s one of the most awesome things i’ve ever heard.  the rubberbandits are an irish comedy hip-hop duo from limerick, ireland – and DJ willie o’dea jay spins their tracks and takes pictures of boobs from the stage.  they invaded america and i got to hang with them for a bit and snap a few pictures for MTV.  these guys are good people.  really friendly, down-to-earth and energetic.  check out the spot on MTV iggy HERE

i just heard the gaelic version of their song, “i want to fight your father,” and it’s pretty fantastic.  SEE FOR YOURSELF

pre lives on

samuel adams always thought running for fun was ridiculous.  unless he was late or being chased by someone with a knife – he was walking.  but one fine day he got inspired by steve prefontaine’s amazing story and laced up his sneakers.  that’s all it took.  he’s been hooked ever since and now sam wants to stir inspiration in everyone else who thinks they’ll never run strictly for recreation.  sam looks a lot like pre to begin with, so he grew a sweet handlebar stache and we shot some pictures to capture the spirit of pre’s devotion to running.  i have to say that i’m on the “lateness and knives” program, but after hanging with sam and hearing his story it got me thinkin about hittin the pavement myself.  if you’d like some motivation to use your getaway sticks, sam will be holding meet-ups, races, fun runs and other cool stuff.  check out his site: www.preliveson.com.

emily hope price performs “between two trees” (lady lamb the beekeeper cover)

emily does this thing where she has absolutely perfect lipstick lines.  they’re friggin perfect, man.  it’s like she has some ancient grecian stone sculpting fairy that chisels her lips into a perfect shape every morning.  i mean, i have no idea how she does it – and i don’t really want to ask because it gives her an air of mystery that i kind of enjoy.  so this is emily hope price.  she’s my friend and she totally rules the chello.

anna adams

anna went on some kind of body cleansing detox to leach the toxins out of her body.  it subsequently leached all of the energy out of her body – so we kept the shoot at a slow pace so she wouldn’t pass out.  anna makes almost passing out look awesome.
