Singer/Songwriter Pastele shoots an exclusive photo shoot in West Hollywood, amongst local graffiti art and hollywood culture. May 5th 2015
The colorful edgy recording artist is known for her combination of visual art and music. Knowing, that Pastele attended NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology for illustration, it’s probably a given for her to enjoy modeling in front of inspiring street art in Los Angeles CA.
The photos are vibrant, funky, and fun while Pastele poses with attitude showing off her artistry. The interesting thing about this girl, is that, she’s heavily inspired by the Jamaican culture, and often crosses her music over into reggae and dancehall. Pastele has spoke about major influences in her music such as Gwen Stefani, Sean Paul, Shaggy, Bruno Mars, and Pink which explains how she is able to merge pop culture and the reggae/dancehall world.
Pastele, is set to feature on a major single coming out with artist/producer Mr. Wonder this month called “Falling”. The song is describe to tie in reggae, hip-hop, and a bit of a slowed down DJ Mustard vibe as well as having reggae artist Lutan Fyah, feature on one of Pastele’s singles.
The latest release by Pastele right now, is her Official Music Video “Lazy Lazy Love” which combines a sensual beautiful video and paint on bodies, definitely worth checking out. The song has a funky reggae beat with up-stroke guitar while Pastele sings in a lower register into a powerful loving chorus. It’s great how this artist keeps to her brand and uses paint and art in almost all her photos and videos!
We can’t wait to see more from this artist and hear all she’s got coming out, should be a good year for her. It’s about time the industry takes a daring dive into music with more culture and wordily influence.
