Was out of town when this NPR premiere of ‘Chuckatuck’ from beautiful new album by Nathan Bowles, entitled “Nansemond,” happened.
I recently heard Nathan’s live set of this and needed immediately to be on a pontoon in a river, watching the trees go by. Happy to have provided, with help from my friend, (artist Anthony Campuzano designed the flag) a deeply weird portrait of Nathan to accompany his announcements.
More musician promo photos making the rounds: Chris Forsyth & The Solar Motel Band, ‘I Ain’t Waiting’ premiers on NPR. Can’t wait till Intensity Ghost, (also uses a photo from the shoot) drops in October.
Magic Carpet by artist Candy Coated was commissioned by the Association for Public Art for The Oval, a partnership of Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and Fairmount Park Conservancy.
