Naked SURAnade

is creating Music Videos




Welcome! I started this project several years ago on YouTube. It was a daily video project for the month of January 2017. When it was removed from YouTube at the end of the month, I put all the videos back up on Vimeo, where the project now lives. I am now revisiting this work, and bring you here to help me fund the next leg of this project: Rising Sun Blues.

Rising Sun Blues is a video project directed and performed by me (with five other incredible models), shot in New Orleans with videography by Marion Hill and art consulting by Madison Young. It is set to a recording I made of House of the Rising Sun. I bring the project here to help fund its editing and distribution. 

Below is the description of the original project: 
Naked SURAnade is a commentary on vulnerability and exposure. Singing is when I feel the most emotionally vulnerable. Nudity is one of the most physically vulnerable states we can be in. Combining these two states, and further depositing the videos on the internet explores ideas of ownership, censorship, exposure-ship. After having my channel removed from YouTube without warning, I've put the videos here (on Vimeo). All the songs are chosen because they make me feel full, loved, comforted. I hope you feel the same.
