Canadian filmmaker par excellence Douglas Arrowsmith, who directed my two music videos, Total Control and Illusions both currently racking up hits on Youtube. He has been awarded the 2013 Canadian Screen award for Best Direction in a Performing Arts Program for his feature film “Love Shines” on the cult singer/songwriter Ron Sexsmith, who is greatly admired by no less an authority than Jules Holland. “Love Shines” was recently broadcast in the UK on BBC for to great acclaim. As if that award wasn’t already pretty impressive, Doug topped it by winning the 2013 Canadian Screen Award for Best Arts Documentary. He will be back in this country in ten days to direct my next music video, ‘Real Live Girl’, another of the songs on my forthcoming album ‘Midnight Matinee’. Produced by David Ogilvy, this features other songs by such legends as Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, all given a rock twist by David, plus a new one by song-supremo Guy Chambers, on which I duet with the amazing Helena Bonham Carter, one of the many stars that sing with me on the album.
My designer de jour…featuring their toile de jour…London Riot Toile that is.
It’s hard not to adore toile….Especially when it’s served up with a cheeky edge like SS2013 collection from Sister by Sibling. Their salon show at Somerset House featured both men’s and women’s versions of the riot-toile.
Of course I will be wearing this!!
