I’d just spent a weekend in NYC with my siblings. We don’t often get a chance to spend time together since we live in different parts of the country. Since I was in NYC, I took the opportunity to film some live videos with Gregory S. Jones. I love the colors and just the plane rawness of the performance. Hope you enjoy.
“Out on the Tracks” centers on out Guyanese singer/songwriter Nhojj, and documents his groundbreaking Made To Love Him recording sessions.
Affirming the SGL and LGBTQ communities through same-sex renditions of classic traditional love songs from Gershwin’s “Someone to Watch Over Me” to Billy Joel’s “She’s Got a Way” (“He’s Got a Way”), this gentle and human documentary touches upon the themes of love, hope and self-acceptance, and explores the power of music.
Last weekend while I was in Chicago, I filmed a DIY music video with Tim’m West for our song “Lullaby”. I filmed his scenes and he filmed mine. It was a lot of fun – we started filming around 2am and by 6am, Tim’m had edited and uploaded to YouTube. Hope you enjoy our filmmaking.
