We here in Fatally Yours are all about some hometown pride. From Boh's and O's to crab cakes and Ravens football - THAT'S WHAT WE DO!!! With that in mind, I decided to do a little bit of research to find out what other notable people call Bawlmer their hometown. What I ended up with was a huuuge list that I've painstakingly narrowed down to just 10. 10 is a nice, round number that people seem to like. So without further ado, and in no particular order, here goes...
Since we've released our debut EP, Every Moment, a lot of you have been asking about what inspired the art. We heard you loud and clear, so I'd like to take a moment to address that very good question...
We wanted the artwork on Every Moment to do a few things for our fans and potential fans. We wanted to give the listener a visual darkness that you can feel in the music. We wanted every panel to be a separate piece or print, but all from the same artist, and preferably someone we know and is from our hometown of Baltimore, MD.
We did not want the listener to judge what the music was about simply by looking at a band photo or promo shot of the band. How many times have you looked at a record and decided if you we're "into" it based on what the band looked like?! It happens ALL THE TIME!
I remembered that one of my close friends was an artist, but had since moved away to San Francisco. I contacted her about providing artwork for the EP, and the rest is history.
Dara Lorenzo is an American artist from Baltimore, MD. You can get more familiar with her and her art, as well as see the other prints from the same batch we choose our artwork from by clicking here. Enjoy!!
