set design : the civil wars

This past week, I had the privilege of creating the set for my dear friends, The Civil War's CD release show here Nashville.

First off, if you haven't been around iTunes to see that they've topped the overall albums list at #1 since their release of "Barton Hollow" last week and taken a cue from that, do yourself a favor and go get it... like, now. I promise that their romantic harmonies and melodies (those are the right words, right...?) will make your heart melt and your body sway.

We took a cue from this chuppah over on Once Wed to create something delicate and dreamy. (The chuppah Joy created for Once Wed was made from vellum; this backdrop is constructed out of muslin, kraft paper, netting and 600ish pages of The Once and Future King stapled end to end. Sorry my-Sophomore-year-of-highschool-English-teacher.)

And a big 'thanks' goes out to my man Tec for all the images. He shot all their promo pics for this album, too. Homeboy is just too good.

I just saw The Civil Wars' music video and they are so great! Folksy with a little edge - just my style. Your set design is so great as well. It blends perfectly with their sound!

PS - Congrats on being a "cover star" for Jose Villa's book!

I fell in love with the Civil Wars a few months ago- their sound is so intoxicating. How cool that you got to do this!
