During the last weekend of Austin's ACL Music Festival, Other Voices came to Austin to film a 4 day music show. I was fortunate to have been the lead makeup artist/hair stylist on this show! We had such an amazing time, with acts like Dale Watson, Wild Child and Cage the Elephant.
Other Voices had three hosts; Alejandro, Austin's local musician "Shakey Graves", MayKay from Ireland, (and the band Fight Like Apes) and Huw Stephens, a welsh radio presenter currently on BBC Radio 1 and Radio Cymru.
During the day, they interviewed the musical acts around some Austin hang outs, favorite food spots and bars. Then in the evening, Other Voices created a MAGICAL space where the various acts preformed for a select 30-50 people at Arlyn Studios. It was SUCH an amazing show to be a part of. The crew from the Emerald Aisle were so splendid and very hard working. I'm so glad I got to experience the show.
There have already been a number of news articles about the show filmed in Austin, TX. I really am super excited to see the end result. Other Voice's Austin will release early next year on Ireland's channel RTE2. I have to find an app so that I can watch too. Be sure to look them up on their site www.othervoices.ie They will be uploading snippets from performances.
