Jesse Kinch- Long Island, NY

Featured Video Play Icon

Blowing into Long Island along with the snow we found our way to a place where songs are born and peaceful harmonies abide. Deep inside the Sanctuary of Jesse Kinch we went back in time, yet felt ourselves breathing in the essence of something new, that can only come from that eternal place where rock & roll lives forever. 

There is more to this winner of Rising Star ABC than meets the eye and we hope you will take a moment to get to know the man behind the music. Looking forward to his new album he has been fighting so hard for.

Nashville, the crew fell for you.

Thirdman Records

Americana roots captured the soul after trying hold our claim on the LA freeways and plastic culture. Nashville greenery, subtle humdrum, and country rock of Broadway opened the can of, ’happy’ in our hearts as we captured that and more of what we were looking for.

Currently we reside at home in Vancouver; watching the rain drizzle down the window and pull footage as we storyboard and begin a first edit for the trailer pitch.

This post goes out to our Cinematographer Wes Chew. It is not without you and your giving heart that our shutter speed would have remained half hazard, lost in ISO darkness, only to drift in and out of focus if you did not manually save us! Thank-you for making us laugh, question, and challenge the essence of this Film. You are our Earth Angel.

What do you know… the sun just came out!

Day Two and Three: Behind The Scenes LA

We woke up to the eternal youth of the one and only Michael Des Barres knocking on our door looking for a cup of coffee. Sitting down and talking with this man whose stories are animated, exuberant and filled with a confidence that time has brought him to the very place he was meant to be. Challenging us to see with our hearts and not with any preconceived notions of whom others might be.

I’m on a journey and I do not judge or condemn. I’ve been sober for 30 plus years but I can’t tell someone else not to do something, I can only live by the example that anything is possible.

Pamela Des Barres 1

If these walls could talk…

On a sleepy Los Angeles afternoon we entered the home of rock groupie Miss Pamela Des Barres. Apparent that there was no vacancy left to be a fly on the wall dressed in yellow and teal hangings of self-portraits, Elvis, Walt Whitman, Jesus, The GTO’s, and a photograph with Dylan. So much life yet a solace melancholy filled the room, maybe to realize that life with a musician is more of a dream.

The way I see it, we were their muses and they needed us.

Blue and Wes

In Studio City we went back to the time when rock & roll lit up the Sunset Strip with an energy that was as flamboyant and crude as there ever might be. We sat down with Blue Dixon who is not afraid to tell it like it is and reflects on the fact that as women we need to have each other’s back because it can be a cruel, dark world otherwise. Stories of life on the road and how she became an unwelcome member on the tour bus by speaking her mind.

This bus don’t roll until we drop the hoe off at the Texaco.

Suzette and Wes

Next stop Marina Del Rey and the charms of Dee & Suzette Snider who show us that perseverance, will and determination are the key to longevity.

No man was ever going to stand in my way. I love Dee but I don’t need him.

Each artistic encounter brings another perspective to the equation as we seek to answer the question ‘does or can’ real love exist in this industry. What is love to each person and is the end result fuelled by chance or choice.

Day One LA: Behind The Scenes

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

I sit here currently residing in the quaint hills of Echo Park at our Spanish Style Air Bnb on Valentine and the steepest hill we have EVER encountered off Baxter Street. Summer is still in full force as the muggy humidity hugs our bones and flowery smell of California clears the soul.
