I cannot get enough of Kaleo’s music! Thankfully JJ also can’t get enough of my jewelry either! When stylist Audrey Brianne contacted me about their appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, of course I agreed to make some custom pieces for them! I actually taught myself how to macrame bracelets just for this project! JJ ended up wearing his favorite carved horn and red pheasant feather necklace for this performance, but they all kept a significant chunk of my bracelets for their current tour! Audrey told me that “[JJ] loved it all”, and “[He] was so thankful when I told him you made it all custom again.” Up above is a video of them performing “No Good”, and just below is a video of them performing their hit song, “Way Down We Go”. If you’re a fan of rock and roll and unique vocals, definitely pick up their debut album “A/B” out in stores, or preview it on Spotify!
Last week my stylist friend Audrey Brianne did a request for a band she was styling for their tv appearance on Conan! She said the band’s name was Kaleo, and they were from Iceland, and that this event was their first televised performance in the US! She sent me some pics of them, and suggested I make some cool, earthy jewelry, using rocks and leather. When I watched the show, I was so happy to see the bass player, Daníel Ægir Kristjánsson, wearing a couple of my bracelets! He loved them so much he ended up buying them! Also, their performance was incredible! Such beautifully composed music, and the lead singer’s voice is uniquely compelling. Audrey said that during the fitting, the guys kept playing with my pieces in particular, so fingers crossed that they’ll be rocking my pieces in the near future!
