Urban Frontier by Gary Stubelick


Alex Winston is a singer-songwriter from Detroit, who is being tipped by many as someone to look out for in 2011. Her vocals are very reminiscent of Kate Bush, which can only be a good thing. Behind it on her latest track, ‘Locomotive’, is an upbeat pop tempo that might just push her into some more (much deserved) radio airplay. Currently touring in America, she hits UK shores in mid-May.

Locomotive is happy/bouncy. And to be honest, I don’t usually associate trains with both those words. I’ve been on too many! National Geographic once again was a great resource for finding an appropriate picture though. I found ‘Urban Frontier’ by Gary Stubelick on the Top Shots site (link below). The shot captures the upbeat nature of the song with the sparklers and light. Also, the idea of moving in the song is matched by the bike itself. “I like to utilize common objects to create an extraordinary event,” says Stubelick, who used sparklers and a prolonged exposure to “paint” this bicycle and stairs with light. Gary has used this theme on many more objects and vehicles to great success.¬†You can find out more about the featured artists below…
