While looking at pictures taken at FMLY Fest Brooklyn, I came across this one picture capturing one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever experienced due to the power of pure love and passion for art/music.
This happened under the rain during Yohuna’s (Johanne Swanson) amazing set. Everyone gathered around her and her gear, holding up Noah Klein Cuddle Formation’s parachute to protect her gear from the rain as she played her lovely songs. This moment was definitely one of the highlights of FMLY Fest Brooklyn (if not The Highlight). To see how the passion and love for art/music inspired this strong sense of community amongst each of one of us that were there, was truly a gift. Nowadays it is very rare to see that which is why this was truly a beautiful inspiring experience.
So I decided to send Lisa this picture along with other ones (who is all the way in France) to share what a beautiful experience that weekend had been for me. And this is what she did with that picture.. She drew it!!! I’m still and will always be perplexed at how amazing this drawing came out. She is incredibly talented! I hope all of you enjoy it! :)

Absent Fever: One Year Anniversary

Absent Fever (the digital label/music collective that I co-run with verb/re/verb) turned exactly one year old today. When we first got the idea to start up a digital record label, we barely knew each-other at all and…

congrats to AF!
