We discovered him through his song ‘New York’ and we immediately fell in love with his nonchalance in his debut album ‘We Share a Similar Joy’. @JW Francis is that type of guy, always making you smile with his laugh, music and energy. That is why we invited him to do a Stay Away Show. Because we all need this kind of energy right now. He explained to us that he actually spent a lot of time in Paris, in the same block where we filmed the Herman Dune #TakeAwayShow.
But that’s when the New-York based artist logged in to our Instagram for his livestream that we realized he was not that far from us : “Apple iPad • Instagram • Paris, France”.
What !? But how did he not tell us before ? Doing a Stay Away Show is nice but doing a Take Away Show is way better ! That is how, in the middle of our Christmas holidays, we managed to find a team to shot him along with his dad and friend near the Canal St Martin. It was really cold, wet, but we were all happy to be here, starting 2021 in the best way possible.
