I'll admit, Jose Gonzalez's cover wins in my book, but the original by The Knife has a whole different vibe. Jose's version tinges on sadness and has a more magical feel, but this version totes makes me want to put on a pair of rollerskates and jam... ;)

Mercedes Benz.

Being there for the filming of this piece was absolutely incredible. My amazingly talented friend Brian Forbes (Aabaraki) joined the beautiful Emily Greene in Central Park on a sunny New York day, last weekend for this magical video shot for Silverlake to Soho. The flowers in the tree, the birds chirping along and the sounds of children playing in the background only add to the perfectness of "Mercedes Benz..."

*Special thanks to Silverlake to Soho,Veronica Cooper and Em for inviting me to hang! :)*

Perpetuum Mobile.

I had a rough time waking up this AM... this right here proved to be some good wake up tunage:

Just Fine.

Emily. Greene. I adore you.

Emily Greene has quickly become one of my closest friends. She is a magical soul with an abundance of specialness, and I am so glad she's in my life! :)

However, more than just an amazing ally and a fantastic human being; Emily is an extraordinary musician and writer of songs. Her lyrics are powerful and relatable, and the hugeness of her heart shines, and amazes me still; thus I MUST share her with all of you. Everyone deserves a healthy dose of Emily Greene.

This new video for “Just Fine” showcases the Emily that I know and love (only in real life she’s in color) and the Emily that you should get familiar with. Here’s "Just Fine" (filmed and edited by Noah Lagin), a stunning visual for a hopeful set of words...

Back in the New York Groove.

Hello everybody!! I have been so busy writing for other sites, auditioning for newer projects and building my styling business with two of the greatest ladies in the world, that I've had almost no time to blog for my own personal (and also yours. obvi.) enjoyment! After all, a girls needs a life and friends after all those career goals! :)

I'm living in Brooklyn, the sun is shining and the life is exciting... I'M BACK!!

Hope North.

Last Sunday night, I had the pleasure of working alongside Lily O'Brien and Veronica Cooper from Lily Golightly PR at the Hope North Ping Pong Ball at SPiN New York supporting the Hope North boarding school in Uganda.

The event was hosted by Susan Sarandon and Mary-Louise Parker and included performances by Okello Sam, Charlie Mars, Martha and Rufus Wainwright and the like. The night also included a silent auction (in which not a single person bid on an autograph from the Biebs), a not-so-silent auction (where a walk-on role for weeds was bid on for upwards of $5000) and ping pong tourneys galore - all to raise money and awareness for Okello's genuinely grassroots cause...

Hope North is a 40-acre campus in northern Uganda where refugees, orphans and former child soldiers find a place to call home. It is a living and learning community with an accredited secondary school, vocational training center and full time Ugandan staff of fifteen.

In northern Uganda, tens of thousands of children have been abducted to serve as soldiers in a brutal civil war. The war has made orphans and refugees of many others, with 1.6 million Ugandans forced into overcrowded camps. Doctors Without Borders named the conflict in northern Uganda one of the top ten most underreported humanitarian tragedies.

Hope North was created to give education, vocational training, community and hope to some of these young victims, while preserving their Acholi heritage.

Okello Sam is a well-known Ugandan dance and theater artist whose family was directly affected by the war in the north. He and his brother Godfrey were abducted, and Godfrey was eventually killed by rebels.

His home devastated, Okello Sam purchased a large tract of land to serve as a sanctuary for his community, and on which to build Hope North...

AND NOW, for your listening and viewing pleasure, I give you a new Rufus Wainwright's gem, "I'm Out of the Game:"
