Throughout the summer many new amazing artists were met and taken into the JMD consultation and creation process. This included my second major artist of the summer, the incredibly talented Farrowtone.
Breaking out into the charts and climbing higher and higher with his current single "Bedroom" (currently sitting at number 13). His music is soft, silky, and a throwback to the greats like Frank Sinatra, and Elvis Presley. Mix that sound with a modern soft beat and you've got some of the best chill, sexy time music around.
Another artist under the Caelum Entertainment wing, Farrowtone introduced himself to me mid summer, and we clicked instantly. Immediately seeing him as classic, old hollywood, and a bit modern day Elvis Presley, the case was open to create a new meaningful look that balanced out his music and persona.
I wanted to create on him something that both evoked the lavish hollywood in golds, and jet blacks, as well as bringing a very soft masculine fit to whatever was created. In my journeys to the MET and Natural History Musuem (countless ideas brewing) I was inspired in the knight wing. I saw there knights in formation riding into battle full plated with underlink chain fitting the body.
Finally weaving this into a soft tight cut dress shirt as a shoulder piece topped with a modern custom made JMD pair of glasses and we were set for our shooting day. We took shots for both potential album covers, and for promotional shots. Thanks to the wicked Frank Kuzler of DeadPro Inc. was our photographer shooting up a storm. Also keep your eyes peeled for his next single coming out in November and shows in California, NYC, Miami and hopefully London! Jeffrey xx
