Sideshow Alley

CO-FOUNDER / PRODUCER / DIRECTOR / EDITOR / ART DIRECTOR

Sideshow Alley is an improvised live music video series bringing together the finest new and established artists and filmmakers at unexpected locations in New York City and Melbourne. 

We make new friends in alleyways and on rooftops, recording each artist performing one song, one take, with no fixed agenda and no rehearsal.  By imposing location, time and technological restrictions this informal approach brings out a unique and honest take on each artists’ music.

Since its inception in 2010 we’ve produced six seasons, garnering a worldwide audience with over 7.5 million views across featured artists; Mumford & Sons, Julia Jacklin, Nathaniel Rateliff, Midlake,​ ​Laura Marling, Gomez, Kimbra, First Aid Kit and many more.
