I’ve always loved production videos that show the process of making music. I think back to watching Pharrell and Timbaland and now watching Kenny Beats and the amazing production community they’ve created online. And I wanted to do something to bring that creative process to life while showcasing the solar studio trailer. So voila! I bring you episode 1 of a new series called ‘The Mansion’.
I hope to keep doing regularly where I invite musicians I dig into my solar studio trailer to make music together. Let me know what you think!

I’m super excited to announce my first collaboration with the UN Youth Leader for the United States AY Young. He’s actually also a performer making music powered from solar energy and using his music to spread environmentalism.
Our means and methods are so similar I was so excited to learn about him and connect with him and now I’m super excited to be doing a project together! I’ll be sharing the finished song as soon as it drops!
Check out his music and what he’s doing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VcU2gStRqmQ&t=11s&ab_channel=AYYoung
Here’s a little behind the scenes of shooting the studio performance footage for the Clouds of Different Colors music video.
This is really my first time working with another videographer to capture footage in a studio environment.
I had the idea of shooting in the hospital gown to express the huge costs to our health that sugar poses. We put Gatorade in the blood bag to symbolize our blood becoming sugary like Gatorade. Plus we couldn’t fill it with blood.
All in all I like doing videos in real life environments. It’s really easy for a video studio to feel cold or corny.

Y’all are the best for sharing the Clouds of Different Colors video and spreading the word.
The Palm Beach County Democratic Executive Committee finally published a resolution calling for Nikki Fried to put an end to the sugar burning which is poisoning the Glades communities.
Also! We proved that art can make a difference in environmental justice because the press release for the resolution being published cited the Clouds of Different Colors music video as the background context to the resolution being passed!
There is a LOT of work that has gone into the StopTheBurn campaign and my music video was just a small part of it. But I’m thankful to contribute my skills to this issue and see some change happening right after. Anyway, all eyes are on our state leadership!

This month I purchased a 26′ snowmobile trailer and am in the process of converting it into a mobile solar-powered studio that I can pull from town to town with my Tesla.
This takes “Living in my Tesla” to a whole new level! I’ll be able to show you a bunch more creative sustainable lifestyle content like:
So think about a good name for the Green Gatsby’s new mansion because this is a big upgrade.
Next up –
I’m chomping at the bit to show you this next song and music video coming next month. It’s been over a year in the making and I think it can contribute to creating some change in Florida. Can’t wait to show it to you. But first, check out the artwork for this project created by master painter Reinier Gamboa.
Let me know what you think the project is about based on this artwork!
Here are three things I can say about this music video.
