Monophonics tease new album using artwork by Emily Sevin

Earmilk Monophonics Emily Sevin

There’s a subtle art to creating music that sounds both vintage and current. The Bay Area group Monophonics are one of a handful of musical entities that successfully bridges the gap between soul music of decades past and the urgency of modern society. The band is preparing to release a new album in 2020 on Colemine Records called It’s Only Us and have offered a preview of the project with the single “Chances.”

The Floral Shopping Cart

All I can say about this piece of work is that I am eternally grateful to the help I had in creating it. This team of ladies hand selected flowers and fashion, based solely on a notion I had of a Floral Shopping Cart. Thank you to Sarah Schoetz on floral design and Kaitlin Donovan for styling. Hearts and babies breath ladies.


That time on tour…

Elliott Peltzman of The Stone Foxes photographs Europe

Part of the Emily Sevin Photo Upcoming Photographer Foster Program.

I often joke that running a small business for an artist is like running a non-profit for individuals addicted to creating art. Basically, all the revenue made in selling my craft just covers enough to run the business another day. Sometimes when I’m balls deep in marketing and stamping my logo on yet another brown paper and string parcel aimed at the desperate attempt of getting another art buyer’s attention, I’m convinced I’m simply running a business to keep my arts n crafts habit alive.

Then I buy a kid a roll of film and send his ass of to Europe and he comes back with some gold and it all seems worth it.

Road Trippin with Doggo

As seen in previous post, I took and RV from the hometown in Nashville to a friend’s wedding in Missouri. My doggo Gunner accompanied. I felt so rugged in that monstrosity. We killed the road trip.

The rare wedding shot by Emily Sevin Photo

Don’t tell anyone, but, I don’t usually shoot weddings. I say don’t tell people because I’m still looking for wedding clients that match my ideals on wedding photos. But I don’t usually shoot weddings because I don’t like 99% of weddings. And that’s only because I don’t know 99% of people. If I’m close to the couple – I’m usually into it. I love being there for my friends. But if I don’t know you? I try and get to know you, because I think it’s fuckin’ weird to have a chick YOU DON’T KNOW following you around when you’re half-naked then fully vulnerable and it’s one of the most important days of your life?!?  Wouldn’t you wanna be comfortable with whomever that was? And I’m sure if I got to know the couple and believed in their story and felt comfortable around their parents, I’d do a killer job and love it. In fact I know that because I’ve done that before. I did that here. But you’d be amazed how many coupled don’t find this necessary. Then you get weird photos. Oh well. So send me your wedding clients in need. But make sure they’re cool people, k?
