    Roqué’s First Friday Films: Baker Baker (Interpretations Series) 06/03/22

    Another first Friday is upon us! This month, I wanted to submit the second installment of my “Interpretations” series in which I perform my version of the classic Tori Amos ballad “Baker Baker.” Originally released in 1994 off of her album Under the Pink, I fell in love with this song the very first time I heard it. There is a palpable vulnerability that conveys the feeling of wanting to recapture something that was forsaken. This film I made incorporates imagery that conveys the emotions and sentiments of the lyrics.

    Watch my interpretation of “Baker Baker” at the player above, and thank you SO MUCH for watching.

    Well, it is that time again! Another first Friday of the month is upon us! I have a new short film to share with all the world. My partner MaxZine has been a dedicated gardener for much of his life. Planting veggies and caring for plants happens all year round. In the winter, he manages to brave the cold temperatures and snow storms to be able to grow fresh vegetables.

    For this month’s First Friday Film, I showcase MaxZine’s Winter Garden. You get a fun and whimsical glimpse into how he manages to garden in even the frostiest conditions.

    Roqué’s First Friday Films: Strawberry Wine (Interpretations Series) 04/01/22

    Today is Friday, April 1, and it’s time for another new First Friday feature on my YouTube channel. This month’s newest selection is an intersection between my work as a performing musician and a filmmaker. Filmed and recorded live at Hazelwood Studios in Woodbury, TN, this past winter, I selected the song “Strawberry Wine” by Deana Carter as one of the songs I would cover. I have always loved the song since the first time I heard it, and I wish I had written it. I can completely sympathize with its story of first love and the bittersweet memories that come with it.

    You can watch my full performance in the screen above, and if you know of a song you would like for me to cover, please let me know in the comments section below or on social media.

    Thank you SO MUCH for watching. I have more to come soon.
