I’m very excited to release my new music video for “Shooting Star!” Appearing on both my Nova and Supernova albums (available on iTunes), Shooting Star touches on the two-year, long-distance period at the beginning of my relationship with my husband.

Filmed and Recorded in NYC, Shooting Star is directed by Brooklyn-based brothers Kyle Ranson-Walsh and Brendan Ranson-Walsh, produced by Måns Ek, and written by Erik Lidbom, Johan Emmoth, and Charlie Mason, and is released via Ninthwave Records.

I had the pleasure of sitting down with my intensely talented friend and orator, Justin Sayre, for his podcast “Sparkle & Circulate.” Serving as an online supplement to Justin’s wonderful work with “The Meeting” (a monthly meeting for the New York chapter of the  International Order of Sodomites), “Sparkle and Circulate” affords an intimate interview setting, in which I talk about my husband (and our ten wonderful years together), my music, posing naked for artists, and naturally, my religious affinity for Kylie Minogue.

Out Magazine recently published a preview of new works by my friend, designer John Brinegar, for his upcoming show “I Would Never Wear That.” I’ve included several amazing pieces by John in my Instagram feed, and the below image appeared in Out Magazine, in which I’m sporting one of John’s phenomenal cowls.

Below is a video from 2014’s Julie Andrews-themed edition of The Meeting, in which I mash-up Mary Poppins’ “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” with Missy Elliott’s “Work It” (loosely titled Mary HipHoppins):

I’m currently gracing the cover of Australia’s Q Magazine, with an accompanying interview discussing the creation of my debut pop album, Nova! Read the interview here, and check out the new images by photographer Alan Mercer from our recent session in LA.

Tonight (Wednesday, July 17), I’ll be singing “Shooting Star” (from Nova) in the Sherry Vine Show at NYC’s Industry nightclub!  Come along for Sherry’s signature xxx rated parodies, and my own summery pop concoctions, and stay for the libations and the handsome bar staff.

July also sees me back in rehearsals for Thomas Adès’ “Powder Her Face” for a brief run of performances in Québec City over August 1, 3, and 5 for Opéra de Québec! I’ll be reappearing in Jay Scheib’s wonderful production in the Corp of Lovers, while my husband, tenor Will Ferguson, reprises his role as The Electrician.  If you’re into naked men and opera, this is the show for you!
