I had the great experience of working with him on the album art for this release, his second for Folkwit Records in the UK. You absolutely gotta check this guy out!

^^^^^

He’s a violinist/composer/multi-instrumentalist that sounds like a symphony crossed with folk and indie, and road trips, and time spent exploring cities…his music makes you picture movies in your head. It’s rich, son.

Did I trick you with that headline? I don’t know if that’s ever gonna happen but we gotta dream right? Yes we do. Anyways this post is not really about that. Altho I truly wish it was.

Brian Leahy Art wants to tell you about the band its in.

“Um, our band is called W Summon. We’re named after that piece of materia from Final Fantasy VII that lets you cast the attached spell twice in a row. Awesome”

We’ve been playing monthly at the No Name Bar on the Hill in Boulder, CO

Our next show there is May 3 @ 10 PM

Look for us to start playing in Denver this summer.

Been carting some paintings over there for the shows…here you can see “Greater Than / Less Than” in the background. Ugh. Hipsters.

Stage ready

We got lights!

Album Art for Valeska Gavotte’s New Release

Monday, March 25th, 2013

I have recently had the great pleasure of working with esteemed musician Valeska Gavotte of Folkwit Records. Valeska is an incredible composer from the eastern seaboard of our great country and I was thrilled when he asked me to do the album art for his first EP, Botanica, back in 2012. He later used “Victory Day” for his second release, “The Sword and the Shield”, and now they are being re-released and pressed together as one CD across the pond by Folkwit Records of England. Be sure to check out his music, it’s fuginggg sweet. There’s nothing like it.

I’ll be doing the art for his 3rd release “Songs for Sinfonietta” over the next few months. More info soon!
