ROGERS' BAND 'BAYONESSE' RELEASES DEBUT SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO

No stranger to the dramatic, lead vocalist Christy Lee Rogers, is taking a pause from her fine art career, to collaborate with fellow artist and musician Ryan Murphy – forming the alternative indie rock band Bayonesse.

Their debut single ‘Angel Touching Down’ from their upcoming album ‘Bleeding Heart’ will be released November 25th, accompanied by a dark and avant garde underwater music video filmed and directed by Rogers.

The music video, starring actress Elisabeth Donaldson and Bayonesse themselves, and edited by award winning filmmaker Ray Izad-Mehr, gives life to the darkness and turmoil underlying their heart-felt lyrics. Completely unaltered and un-coloured, the footage is raw out of the camera, with a frenetic and stylized editing technique.

Edited by Award Winning Filmmaker:  Ray Izad-Mehr

Starring (Underwater Sequences)  Elisabeth Donaldson

Directed and filmed by:  Christy Lee Rogers

DESIGNER ELISABETH DONALDSON CREATES SEXY UNDERGARMENTS FOR ROGERS' NEW COLLECTION

Model and Clothing Designer Elisabeth Donaldson created these sexy Barbarella-like undergarments for Rogers latest underwater still and film shoot.  As a model this is what Elisabeth had to say about her experience underwater.

"When shooting underwater with Christy Lee Rogers, there is an initial moment of complete physical terror. You have blown out all of your air, and are underwater in darkness, searching for light, wrapped in fabric that grabs you and pulls you and covers your face. You body feels like it's drowning and the physical instinct is to stop and come to the surface and give up completely.  Through this terror you must find grace, through this terror you must find beauty, through this terror you must find peace- and as you take control of this scared animal body of yours and trust the communication of your soul- there, in that brief moment before your lungs are imploding and screaming for air, you can find the truth. And the truth is that you are beautiful and eternal and free- and no matter what trap you find yourself caught in, in this universe, you have the infinite ability to create life."

ROGERS RELEASES NEW UNIQUE ONE-OF-A-KIND WORKS WITH UK ART DEALER FRASER KEE SCOTT

rare in the Photography world, and like a painting these prints are one of a kind.  Please contact Fraser for pricing and availability fraser@agallery.co.uk

Fraser Kee Scott - "Seeing as your work is often compared to 19C painters, is there a special relevance to you in releasing unique one-off works?"

Christy Lee Rogers - "I love the idea of creating something that represents a moment in time, that can never be re-created exactly the same.  You put your heart into a work and that essence is there forever.  It’s as if you’re giving birth to a new life form.  As an original and unique work, there is comfort in knowing as an artist you can now freely move on to the next moment and the next creation.   I was born to be a painter, and I release my works like a painter, with about 20 new works a year, yet I create my works with this new medium called Photography.  So, it feels right to release them this way."
