Stone Creek City for Summer Diary Project, and This Show is So Gay!

KimDavidsSmith-3509-Edit-1I recently had the pleasure of lounging in mid-morning daylight for the incredibly talented “Stone Creek City.” Titled “Stranger in Midtown,” and photographed anonymously by Stone Creek City, this photo set plays with light and shadow over the naked form, and is published online by the exquisite curatorial eye of Summer Diary Project.

I also had a fantastic chat over the airwaves with Ken Schneck for the wonderfully gay radio programme, “This Show Is So Gay.” Steam or download the full interview, and hear all about my perspectives on Kylie, Dannii Minogue, my pop-Weimar mashups, art modeling, and the importance of a good lower-body workout!

Kim David Smith in Out Magazine / “The Art of Looking”

I’m very excited to be featured in the Out Magazine arts section this month, along with a slideshow of works by amazing artists and photographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the past 12 months:

“The Many Mediums of Kim David Smith”

Including works by Lucas Ferrier, John MacConnell, Jordan Mejias, Rick Day, and many others, Out makes mention of my recent portrait sitting with the inimitable art collector and sensualist Charles Leslie, for “The Art of Looking,” a fabulous retrospective coffee table book showcasing the incredible collection of gay art (and art by gay artists) housed and celebrated by Leslie.
Also mentioned is the “Jealous” music video from my 2013 album, Nova. Keep your eyes peeled for my upcoming summer release, Supernova — a fabulous remix edition of Nova, to be accompanied by a brand new music video by brothers Kyle and Brendan Ranson-Walsh!

Kim David Smith’s “Nova Noir” will take the stage at The Manderley Bar, NYC (February 3 at 10:30PM), conjuring the glitter and doom of Weimar-era Germany, and the electronic heartbeat of modern pop in a Frankenstein’s monster of genre-mashing and music making.

Fronting his electro-cabaret band led by the inimitable Benjamin Ickies, Smith performs his own electropop originals alongside peculiar period treasures (in German, Japanese, French and English), incorporating works by Friedrich Hollaender, Kylie Minogue, Kurt Weill, Madonna, The Supremes, Mischa Spoliansky, and myriad others.

Kim David Smith/Nova Noir February 3, 10:30PM at The Manderley Bar/The McKittrick Hotel (530 West 27th Street, NYC). FREE!

“Completely stellar…slyly subversive.”

Will Friedwald, The Wall Street Journal, NYC

“He happily considers himself as a misfit, and goes about proving his point in several languages. There’s no one else around these days offering the kind of cabaret that he does so compellingly. Well, maybe Ute Lemper, but that’s it. Smith needs to be seen, and now.”

David Finkle, The Village Voice, New York City
