"If music soothes the savage beast, what provokes it? My alter ego can only be tamed if someone strokes it. I have never smoked weed in my life, but when I shoot Jamie Dominic, I stay high. He is as close to perfect as they come and the camera loves him. I wanted to do a photo series called the "White Chair." However, the more I got to know this incredible man, it only became more apparent that the series should be called "Musical Chairs."
"You see a lot of people do not know this about him. Not only is Jamie easy to look at, but his musical talents are deep rooted and authentic. He needs no studio trickery to fix his voice...not to mention his guitar licks are smoking hot! So when I think of the game musical chairs, I cross my heart, fingers, and other body parts for when that music stops, I am struggling for the last chair along with my rival Jamie Dominic. Being the gentleman that I am, and also my competitive nature, I would definitely be the last man standing. Jamie would most definitely have a place on my lap."
"As the music plays, pick up your pace for the winning chair. Play a game, just and fair. Walk a little distance, run into a step of dance, leap in a vertical style, or move along in a circular mile. Smile a little, laugh a little, and apply the speed of a rabbit or a turtle. Keep a quick gaze. It is not time to laze. As the music comes to a standstill, sit in a nearby chair with a chilling thrill." –BM-
