Nice… jessica Care moore dropped a video of my favorite song from the album we recorded, “Black Tea: The Legend of Jessi James“. Aside from Kris Johnson’s brilliant trumpet work, this was recorded mostly live in the Metroplex Room at Submerge on a whirlwind day of tracking. I love the groove Jon Dixon, Ben Luttermoser and Nate Winn locked into. Alicia Renee aka Blue eyes and jessica were sequestered in the vocal booth. It was a bit chaotic, but tons of fun. This was the first song we tracked, and it set the tone for the magic that would follow.
Luevanos calls the viaduct mural Inspiración, or inspiration, in Spanish. Her inspiration was her mother and grandmother, both artists, and this mosaic is a fitting tribute to her roots. But she also hopes the piece will inspire everyone who passes by — and that’s a lot of people on this busy thoroughfare. “What I want you to take away is a moment of happiness,” she said. “When people look at it, it makes you happy.”
Congratulations on this fantastic gift to your community, Lisa!
