I’m wearing the Wedding Photographer in Huntington Beach hat for now, sipping on a cup of hazelnut coffee while I’m finishing up my newest West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week for you today.
But later tonight… I’ll be heading to Los Angeles at the El Rey Theatre for the Lykke Li concert. Super excited to take the night off as I’ve been preparing more deliverables this week & gearing up for a fantastic weekend of shooting and being photographed myself too. Yeah!
Since I’m heading out of Orange County for Los Angeles to see Lykke Li in concert, I thought that this week’s West Coast Wednesday should be a treat from Sweden. As you might remember a few months ago I went to see Robyn in concert in Los Angeles and tonight another eclectic artist from Sweden is coming to town; Lykke Li.
If you’re not too familiar with Lykke Li, check out this snippet about her from Wikipedia. I love how she started off in a very creatively influenced house with her family!
“Li was born in Ystad, Skåne in 1986; her mother, Kärsti Stiege, had been a member of an all-girl punk band called Tant Strul before settling into photography. Her father, Johan, played guitar for Swedish punk band turned reggae outfit Dag Vag. The family moved to Stockholm when Li was a toddler and later moved to a mountaintop in Portugal when she was six, where they lived for five years. The family also spent time in Lisbon and Morocco and spent winters in Nepaland India. She moved to the neighborhood of Bushwick, Brooklyn in New York for three months when she was 19.
She returned when she was 21 to record her album. Zachrisson released her first album, Youth Novels on LL Recordings in the Nordic region on 4 February 2008 and it received a wider European release in June, 2008. The album was produced by Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John and Lasse Mårtén and reportedly inspired by a previous relationship of three years. It was released in the United States on 6 May 2008. The album was released in the Republic of Ireland on 6 June 2008 and 9 June in the UK, promoted by a performances of “Little Bit” on Later With Jools Hollandon 25 May 2008.”
But before you check out this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer that loves 80′s music, fashion, photography and art, feel free to contact me anytime.
So without further ado, I give you Lykke Li with her new single: “I Follow Rivers.” So feel free to sit back with your favourite morning beverage, enjoy the video with it’s motion of sound, seductive vocals and eclectic images.
Have an awesome first West Coast Wednesday and also remember to make it a totally positive one for someone else too – cheers!
