My “Nature Boy” music video was conceived in the Dominican Republic, and now I’m birthing it in NYC! And I’ve throwing a big ol’ video premiere party / hootenany to bring it in with all of you; I’m so excited for what the evening has in store…and best of all, it’s FREE, and an open guest list, so please feel free to bring people you love—and in turn, they are welcome to bring people *they* love—and so on and so forth. As the Nature Boy said himself, “The Greatest Thing / You’ll Ever Learn / Is Just to Love / And Be Loved in Return”. So, with that in mind, let’s create a magical evening together in the spirit of love, sharing creative juju, and coming together to celebrate the artistic rumblings (or roars!) that we all have inside of us. The Nature Boy would most certainly approve ☺
Here’s the evening we have in store for you:
THE VIDEO SCREENING!
It’s the first-ever, exclusive showing of the “Nature Boy” music video! Video director John Byrne (Florence + The Machine, Gwen Stefani, Mariah Carey) and I will show you our creation, and provide some fun “behind the scenes” stories into the making of the video.
I’M PERFORMING NEW SONGS OFF MY NEW ALBUM!
I’ll debut 3 never-heard-before songs from my upcoming album, Interstellar Songbook II, live, in the flesh, for y’all.
MY FRIENDS WILL TAKE TO THE STAGE, AKA, IT’S AN ARTIST HOOTENANY!
My talented friends will then perform / sing / dance / showcase pieces of their own, as Interstellar Songbook I + II producer and multi-instrumentalist Andre Fratto musically directs. I’m SO excited to hear + see everyone do their thing!!
Ron Jackson, Adrian Harpham, MuMS, Penny O’Brien, Gabriel Riesco, Adonis Tsimilmparis, John Byrne, + Annesta will be Djing her fat beats for the after-party, so stay + raise another glass + let’s boogie!
WIN A FABULOUS FASHION PRIZE BY PHAEDRA PAULSON!
My friend and longtime artistic collaborator Phaedra Paulson is creating a special fashion-y, “Nature Boy”-themed surprise just for the event that we’ll be raffling off to one lucky winner.
