Earth Air Fire Water

In honor of Earth Day 2015, we’re releasing our newest song, Earth Air Fire Water.

 

Beautiful Girl (feat. Marina Babenko)

The very first Snowflakes song available on iTunes has just gone live. It’s a cover of INXS’ Beautiful Girl featuring Marina Babenko on vocals. While we work on our album, we were blessed with a visit from Marina, Natasha’s sister. Marina was practicing the guitar and mentioned Beautiful Girl was a song she’d like to learn. It was a magical evening. The track was done that night and the vocals were tracked the next day. We all had a wonderful experience, and wanted to share that joy. It was an unexpected collaboration that we are glad came to be.

UPDATE: We didn’t take a single picture last night. How did that happen? It was a fun vibe opening for Eagles tribute group Best Of My Love. We played as a duo because our drummer Tom was too sick to make it out. Usually we go acoustic when it’s just the two of us. But the electric guitar and amp were all rigged up. When the the music starts up, we always have fun with it. There was some creative echo that magically appeared on the vocal. Funny how the echos seemed at least as loud as the original. Funny as in, well, nevermind… It actually was fun making spooky Halloween sounds with it.

Photo Shoot With David Florez

Snowflakes had a super fun shoot with photographer David Florez a couple of weeks ago at Hansen Dam in Lake View Terrace in the north part of the valley. We hadn’t been there before. It’s nearly a mile to walk down a perfectly straight walkway to get to the dam carrying our guitars and outfits. It was so worth it!! Great location idea on David’s part. The shoot was super fun. And a ranger gave us a ride back in the bed of his orange pickup truck. A vendor squeezes fresh orange juice at the entrance. Great pics and a fun sunshine filled morning.
