Jeff Langlois, 360 MAGAZINE, The Mill, LA, photography, fine arts

Jeff Langlois

It took a one-way road trip for Jeff Langlois to cultivate a passion for photography. The adventure to LA brought forth stunning deserts and mountainous peaks, as he drove from Minneapolis through the Rockies – in a 2002 Honda Civic; eager to jumpstart a career at a commercial house called The Mill. The best way to balance out the fast-paced, unpredictable, and ever-changing environment that is advertising, was to break away and see what the west coast really looks like. Traveling solo allowed him to arrive in beautiful destinations and wait for these locations to unveil their scenic characteristics. Jeff notes that the best shots always come unexpectedly. Now while still mainly shooting the outdoors, he plans just enough to get him out and moving around, but his best and most memorable shots come unexpectedly. It’s about showing up and being patient and receptive to what’s going on.

Jesse Palter-The Paper Trail

Detroit born, LA based, prolific singer/songwriter Jesse Palter releases debut EP The Paper Trail October 22 on Artistry Music, featuring five tracks of aggressive, piano-pounding pop/rock in the vein of Carole King, Sarah McLachlan and Sara Bareilles. The first single going to radio is “Heavy Is The Crown,” an edgy, incisive pop-rocker examining narcisscism and victim-hood at is best.  Check it out here.

Comments Palter: “All of these songs are paving the way towards establishing myself as an artist and songwriter. My approach throughout this project was to find a way to capture a full snapshot of my life and what I’ve been going through. This is the beginning of what I hope will be a long, fulfilling journey.”

Palter, who launched her career in Detroit and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles to focus on her development as a pop artist, was supported in her sound and overall vision by producer Doug Petty, a veteran keyboardist who has worked with Celine Dion, Britney Spears, Nick Lachey and Lisa Loeb, among others. Petty kept the integrity of Palter’s songs from demo stage through the various layers and textures brought forth to compliment her unique artistry. A high caliber of studio musicians played on the project including bassists Tim Lefebvre and Alex Al and drummers Matt Chamberlain and Aaron Sterling.

With The Paper Trail EP, Palter has committed herself to the discipline of perfecting the craft of songwriting. She focused on strengthening her creative muscles to discover what melodies, lyrics and chord changes work best, allowing herself to be vulnerable, brave and brutally honest at the same time. The songs are autobiographical, representing her life and what’s she’s been through.

Palter launched her jazz career as a teenager, performing oboe and trumpet in the school jazz band. She connected with singer/songwriter Andrew Gold (“Thank You For Being A Friend”), who brought her to Nashville to work on original material and record a demo, which generated interest with several major labels. At 15, she began working with the Grammy-winning production team the Bass Brothers (Eminem). Her skill for improvisational singing and a developing passion for legendary jazz vocalists, led to her shift towards jazz. She studied at the University Of Michigan as a jazz and contemplative studies major.

Her eclectic musical upbringing includes exposure to a wide array of music that inspired her to deeply respect the art of great songs and songwriters, from Carole King and Joni Mitchell, to Prince, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson and The Beatles. Music and singing was always in her blood. Her grandmother, Doris Raynor, was once an opera prodigy in NY.

In early 2019, Artistry Music will follow up The Paper Trail EP with the single “Sever The Ties” and a full-length debut album.

Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 Show

Who: Cynthia Rowley, Bill Powers, Kit Keenan, Whitney Port, Ashley Tisdale, Rachel Feinstein, Sofia Wylie, Jacquelyn Jablonski, Timo Weiland, Madison Grace, Laura Marano, Rachelle Hruska MacPherson, Sophie Macks, Natalie Suarez, Anna Moon, Caroline Lowe and Addison Riecke

What: Designer Cynthia Rowley showcased the Spring 2019 collection with a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Where: Cynthia Rowley Showroom, 16 Morton Street, New York City
Why: To unveil the Cynthia Rowley Spring 2019 collection, the brand hosted an experiential show featuring a collective of freestyle dance skaters.

Collection Statement: We shot our lookbook against an out-of-this-world backdrop. There’s nothing more magical than a full moon…the glow of the moon against soft metallics, the weightlessness of a ruffled dress. If you asked me when I was kid what I wanted to be when I grew up, fashion was light years from my mind. I wanted to be an astronaut – the ultimate adventure.

I’ve always thought one theme, one inspiration was an antiquated idea. Why limit yourself? Fashion should have no boundaries and when you wear the clothes they should never hold you back from any experience.
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the underrepresentation of women in fashion leadership roles. This is something that has always been important to me. These are cool, fearless women – strong, talented athletes following their passion…that’s real inspiration to me. Let’s roll
