Pat and Sean Kelly cover 'Madness' by Muse

My good friends Pat and Sean Kelly of The Revere have become full-time wedding/event performers/DJs, and so they asked me to record a few videos of some of their amazing covers. Of course I jumped with glee at the opportunity to do this. Since I met them in 2006, their voices have never failed to make my heart pound in a way that no other musicians can. They are incredibly talented, wonderful people and I strongly recommend you hire them for your wedding or event!


Revamped website!

I just spent the entire day cleaning up, rearranging, revising and adding content to this website! (Including recutting several samples on this site, and adding a full list of my equipment under the about/contact page!) As you can see, Sky Orphan now has a blog which will be updated with new samples and clips from my newest work! Take a look around :)

"Caught" by Jessi Lee Ross music video

I recently had the honor of collaborating with budding indie musical artist Jessi Lee Ross on the music video for her song "Caught," which we recorded at my home with cellist Stephen Zalalas, and shot in Allentown, PA with help of her friends Billy and Lauren.

This shoot was a miracle that we couldn't have planned - we met up at a diner and right as we were about to leave it started to hail! We couldn't believe it and thought we might have been out of luck and would have to reschedule. However, the downpour lifted and we thought we would go try to see what we could get. We got everything together and found the spot we were looking for and despite the sun being out in full form it started hailing again. Lauren and Billy bravely pushed forward and we shot this emotional scene in the middle of a sunny hailstorm. In case you are wondering, yes, there was a rainbow, however all of my equipment was getting wet and Jessi was struggling to hold an umbrella together of my camera, so I didn't get a good shot of it in time.

Despite the inclement weather, it made for gorgeous footage and we ended up getting everything we needed in that one afternoon. Please enjoy this beautifully written and gut-wrenchingly emotional song, and share if you like it!
