Most of this video was shot in one day with Carolyn Malachi,but the road that led to it took over two years. I followed the grammy-nominated singer along with her band and manager to get a glimpse of the rising star at work. We started the day off with the very special Chief Mastering Engineer Emily Lazar . Her resume of working on over 2,000 albums makes you just want to sit down with a notebook and write down every move she makes. Emily is a very funny, kind and talented individual. Her studio, known as The Lodge, is where the mastering took place. After the mastering, we went to see Carolyn perform at a club not to far away called Subculture. There she performed along with Tawiah and Muhsinah. (Both were extremely amazing!)
This video wasn’t your typical documentary of “talking heads.” I simply wanted to stay out of the way and capture the natural. Carolyn Malachi is breath of fresh air. A pure spirit. Being around her made me want to be greater at whatever I’m suppose to be great at.
