Hollywood’s Thought-Provokers

LA has always had an artistic soul.  The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community.  Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive.  Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.  Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Hollywood that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Music always has been a huge part of my life. When I was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, my mom used to sing to me throughout the entire day and you could hear music coming from our home constantly. Read more>>

My earliest music memories take me back to listening to my dad play his grand piano at home in Hollywood Hills. I would lie down under the piano while Dad (legendary composer/arranger Dr. Clare Fischer –google him!) would write music for TV, film, jazz and pop stars. Read more>>

With my growing desire to tattoo in more western style, I decided to relocate to LA in 2001. Eventually I landed at Purple Panther Tattoos in 2006 and I’ve been there ever since. I’m fortunate to work with such a great group of artists there. Read more>>

The first time I remember being inspired to create is looking at “The Kiss” by Gustav Klimt as a small child. My mother had it hanging in our house for as long as I can remember. Read more>>

My love of photography and of creating images started as a child when I found an old camera of my dad’s in a closet. I loved the way I could isolate an object or make an entire space go in and out of focus. Read more>>

Stevi Daft

I knew from the day I was born that I was going to perform. It was my sole purpose… I’ve been lucky in that respect. I grew up in a small town in Iowa on the Mississippi River. Read more>>


I started ballet and voice lessons very young and then went on to perform in plays and musicals. While majoring in theatre and voice in college I joined my first rock band and fell in love with songwriting. Learning to write songs and perform something that was uniquely my voice was powerful. Read more>>

“I sing for the lost souls, the hopeless, the castaways, the misunderstood, the sad, the angry. Be- cause I am them and they are me. That’s why I sing.” – Read more>>

For most people, I’m sure that sounds crazy, and it is, especially coming here without a fixed job and having to start from the ground up- but I’ve learned that opportunities come and go, and I’d rather be on the side of knowing what the potential was, then having never done it at all. Read more>>

Here I am in an apartment in East Hollywood writing music with some of the best musicians I have ever worked with, and on the verge of releasing our first single as a band! Exciting times! Read more>>

One day I was walking back home and took random shots. On the next day, I developed the negatives, and one photo stood out from the rest and completely changed my view on photography. It was this lovely big tree with the wind blowing its leaves ever so perfectly. Read more>>
