LOCAL ARTIST MUSIC VIDEO: POCKET TANYA – ‘JUNKIE POP’ : DIRECTED BY CRAIG KIMBERLEY

Here’s the video we debuted Friday night at the Dog Bar. Please enjoy, share, and repeat! (click the gear tap to get HD)

This video was a true run-and-gun production. We had about 30 minutes to film the EMPIRE scenes, and about 1 hr for the DOG BAR scenes. The only crew on the shoot was me, and it was all hand held with on rigs, jibs, or gadgets. Paul, aka Pocket Tanya, is an amazing self-producing artist from Gloucester. He has endless energy while performing live, and develops a true connection with his audience at every performance. Paul writes, sings, raps, and produces some amazing tracks. With an amazing mix of 80’s, funk, pop, and hip hop, he somehow upholds all of those styles while creating his sound he calls “Junkie Pop.” If you ever get the chance, get out and support local artists like Pocket Tanya!

LOCAL ARTIST PETER TYSVER : TONIGHT!!! THE TRIBUTE EXHIBITION

I happened upon Peter painting a few weeks back near the lily pond on Eastern Avenue, and I just had to stop and see what he was working on. I was stunned at the beauty of his work. This is one of many pieces you can find at the TRIBUTE EXHIBITION at the North Shore Arts Association going on July 30th through August 10th. The big reception is tonight from 6-8pm!! Peter was as kind, and as talented, as you would imagine.  There will be amazing work from many other artists as well.
