Cheyenne Jackson’s camp but catchy Don’t Wanna Know is from his forthcoming album Drive, and the video features cameos from actors Nick Adams and Matt Cavenaugh, who are well-known to Broadway audiences.
Featuring adult star Derek Atlas, this is a 2012 video from New York’s Matt Ryanz. Dance pop artist Matt has a solid musical background, having been in church choirs, high school musicals and more.
After receiving second place in the Illinois State Music Composition Competition, Matt quickly moved to NYC to study music at the prestigious New York University. While at NYU, Matt was the runner-up for the highly coveted Alan Menken Music Composition Scholarship
Singer-songwriter Jake Courtois gives the NYC visual and musical project KOORTWAH its name.
Reminiscent of and inspired by the likes of Depeche Mode, Leonard Cohen, Roger Waters, Philip Glass, James, Robert Plant, New Order, Smashing Pumpkins and more, KOORTWAH manages to pay homage to the glory of the past while exploring the fervour of the future. By integrating the songs into a carefully curated collection of video projections, KOORTWAH creates an immersive multimedia environment that is at once urgent and poignant, bombastic and mysterious.
New York-based industrial pop singer Danny Blu told Queerty that this 2012 video, which tells the story of a bullied teenager, is aimed squarely at right-wing religious bigots.
“We took a jab at the right wing which uses religion against people,” Danny says. “(We) take that and use it as a weapon right back at them. We took the story of Jesus Christ and made him a modern day high school bullying victim, a perfect parallel.”
