I've had the privilege of staying at my friend Stacy Hoover's stunning antebellum home in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans for the past few weeks. This is the same place where I performed in a majestic crepe myrtle tree last fall.
Every nook and cranny of this place holds some beautiful, unusual, antiquated treat for the senses. She calls it "Wonderland", and with good reason. For more pictures, check out my instagram.
The primary reason for this visit is to work on a music video for everyone's new favorite song of mine, "Lark of my Heart". It will be directed and feature work by incredible New Orleans based artists- most prominently Pandora Gastelum: my very first New Orleans acquaintance, a longtime dear friend, and the incredible puppeteer who made a marionette in my image last year. We shot a kitchen scene the other night with manipulated singing teapots and a ceiling-high wooden ladder, and I laughed when I saw the footage. It reminded me of a certain something.
The video will be released later this year. Excited to share this work and amazing local community with you!
