John Feiffer from Aquarian Weekly may have said it best when he wrote:
"[Charlotte Sometimes] is not a standard singer... She doesn’t sound like the blonde stable of radio fodder out there right now. It’s a refreshing and offbeat style that holds court with the very few influential singers I listed earlier. So, after several listens to The Wait and seeing her live, her voice, like black Sambuca, just becomes an acquired and delicious taste. You could put her up against anyone on the charts today and she would excel. If learning to write is half the battle, my prediction would be getting to that chartable position is next for Charlotte Sometimes."

We started our day at 5am here in New Jersey to make our 9am call time out in beautiful Riverhead, NY on Long Island.  Director Carl Timpone had a very specific idea in mind for Charlotte Sometimes'  video teaser for her new EP, and it involved a myriad of eclectic characters and crew to make it all work.  Before hair and makeup, I shot an interview with Charlotte and her "leading man", Scott Laudati.  Check out what she had to say about Carl, her music, and the piece of art we were all about to create...

To suit Carl's vision of his etherial opening shots, we decided to style Charlotte's hair in soft, flowing, loose waves.  To achieve that look, I used a 1 3/4 inch curling iron in 1 by 2 inch sections.  To protect her hair and ensure a smooth, shiny texture, I sprayed each section first with TIGI Catwalk Sleek Mystique Haute Iron Spray.  While this product works best when straightening hair with a flat iron, in this case it gave softer hold than a stiffer thermal spray would have delivered, which gives the look of using a larger barrel curling iron, but with a bit better hold.


It was a gorgeous summer day when we shot the  video, although quite hot.  I used TIGI Catwalk Session Series Work It Hairspray on Charlotte's hair, and it held up great throughout the day without becoming sticky or stiff.  Charlotte Sometimes looked amazing, as did the ballerinas until the final shots when they.... well... watch the video and you'll see!

July, 2011 
On one of the hottest days of the entire summer (temperatures reached 100°), Charlotte and I headed back out to Long Island to shoot press shots and what would end up being the album cover photo for her newest EP, The Wait, which was being released the following month.  The brilliant photographer Carl Timpone (who shot and directed the video) would be shooting the pictures, accompanied by Charlotte's stylist, Kara Hoblin.  The backdrop for the photos would be the magnificent old Marshall Field estate at Caumsett State Park, a perfect setting for the romantic themes running through the entire project that was, The Wait.
