Miriam Clancy, Greg Fleming AND The Working Poor

Two new releases which I worked on album art for are out now.

Miriam Clancy is a US-based New Zealand artist and has just released her new album Astronomy, recorded in NYC and produced by Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Zola Jesus, TV On The Radio, Beach House). Greg Fleming is an Auckland, New Zealand artist and Get Off At Lincoln was recored at Auckland’s Lab Studios with Ollie Harmer and Greg’s Working Poor band.

Trivia 1: Both cover images were shot by the artists themselves.

Trivia 2: I played bass for several years with Greg in New Zealand and also produced his 2012 album Edge Of The City which featured Miriam Clancy on BVs. On October 14th I’ll be playing bass with Miriam Clancy at Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory for the Astronomy release show! It’s all a big circle!

Astronomy is also available in CD format as a mini LP cardboard wallet.

DIMMER - I Believe You Are A Star

I recently worked with Dimmer to repackage their 2001 debut album “I Believe You Are A Star” for a vinyl release.

The album, on Sony Music, was not released on CD at the time.
In 2002 I was nominated for this album in the “Album cover of the Year” category at the New Zealand Music Awards.
For the repackage we were able retrieve the original digital art files from our archive so the repackage involved no re-scanning.
Photographer Mark Smith’s beautiful shots of Auckland’s Alexander Raceway look great at LP size.
We made a few other tweaks for the LP art and it came out great.

Limited quants of the LP are available via Flying Out
