I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed on Dave Hill’s Podcasting Incident, an incredible podcast made by my pal and wonderful comedian/musician, Dave Hill. We covered pretty much every topic and it’s hilarious. Enjoy!
It’s been quite a year. In the spring, XELLE brought out our long awaited Hologram music video. Shortly thereafter, it unfortunately became apparent that the group would need to make a painful but necessary change of reinventing itself as the duo of Rony and me to be able to move forward in a way that everyone could be happy with. It was a mutual decision between all members of XELLE, and although we made it to benefit everyone involved, it wasn’t easy to swallow the idea that it meant that we’d have to re-brand everything we’d done up to that point and find a way to relaunch and continue what we do while maintaining the interest and confidence of our fans.
So we got to work on two new videos, and the one above, Red Flag, is our first offering as a duo. I’m relieved and excited to say that it’s gotten lots of coverage and praise so far, in publications such as TimeOut New York, The Huffington Post, The Advocate, Towleroad, Out, and many more. We’ve been working like maniacs to support and promote it, including doing tons of promo performances of the song around NYC, and I’m so excited that XELLE can finally put the focus, time and effort into promoting a project the right way. Making Red Flag a big success is our mission for the next few months, and since it’s a great song that we all wrote together, and has a great message we all believe in, I wouldn’t want to spend my time any other way.
If you enjoy Red Flag and stand for equality, please share this video with all of your friends and family, and check out IRaiseARedFlag.com to find out how you can get involved in our movement for equality in Russia and beyond.
Thanks for your support and patience while we worked to bring you new XELLE stuff!
If there’s one thing I love, it’s making awesome behind-the-scenes videos of all the fun stuff we do in XELLE to let everyone know what a crazy time we have doing what we do. I put this behind the scenes video together after the Queen video came out, and it’s got some awesome funny moments. Check it out!
About a year ago, I filmed this fun guest spot in Jessica Ashley‘s music video for her song, “Neverland.” It’s finally out and it’s gotten almost a million views already and been featured on MTV’s Buzzworthy blog. Look for me playing the evil stepsister. Congrats, Jessica!
I’m excited to announce that my band, XELLE, has finally brought out a new music video, and I was lucky enough to direct it! It’s called “Queen,” and it’s gotten about a quarter million hits in its first week out! Watch it:
Putting this video together was a crazy experience, but now that it’s out, I’m so glad we were able to pull it together. I’ll be editing the behind the scenes video about it very soon and can’t wait to share that too!
We also finally released our debut EP, Queens, so go grab it on iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, or any of the other online music retailers worldwide, and leave us a review when you do! You can also get an autographed hard copy of the CD at www.XELLEmusic.com/store.
The Hologram music video is still in the works, but we’re finally nearing the end of that crazy journey, and should have it out in early 2013. Thanks for your saintly patience! In the mean time, catch a glimpse of it here:
