Artist Camille Mialon of Roche-la-Molière, France just posted her newest drawing of JJ on Instagram! Here she shares a few thoughts about it with us, including the supplies she used and a behind-the-scenes look at her workspace!
After two long days, I've finally done that drawing and to be completely honest, I'm pretty proud of the result. I choose that picture of JJ because I liked the way he stands on it and his facial expression really inspired me (that pensive and melancholic look makes him look 100 times more attractive ) .
I also picked this one because it is an Ultra HD pic so it allowed me to zoom in on every little details of his face and hands, which are making the drawing looks more realistic.
I hope you'll like it and don't hesitate to click here to leave a comment,
your opinions are always welcome ! xoxo
After both Pete and Kaleo started posting pics back in November of JJ with his new custom resonator, I knew the second Q&A was going to have to include more info about it. I was hoping it would get played at one of the concerts sometime after he got it so that someone in the fandom could capture it, but alas, only those lucky audience members on French TV got to hear it.
I was very excited to learn that she was open to sharing more about her process and how she came to be one of JJ's go-to custom jewelry designers. Not only that, but she's begun re-creating some of those custom pieces for her online store!
From now until December 20, you can get any or all of JJ's stuff plus 20% off your entire order with code TIMETOSHINE
Her tagline is "Want a piece?" Um, yes please.
I had originally only planned on this to be a one-time interview, not thinking that there could be much I would be able to cover about one band's single resonator guitar.
But then Pete shared this little sneak preview tidbit with me:
So I can definitively tell you then, that is just a first Q&A with Pete Turner, as we'll be following up later after JJ has had a chance to try out his custom resonator! Fandom, if you get a glimpse of it during its early appearances, tag either Pete or myself on Instagram or send us images of it in concert! We'd love to see it onstage!

I am very excited to start up this section because I love research and details, and this kind of background information is personally very interesting to me. I know a lot of you will probably think that this is going to be a Q & A section for Kaleo themselves and maybe one day, I'll actually get to do a little interview with each one of them.
But honestly, they do a pretty good job of doing interviews with other people (and you can read as many as I can possibly find here) that I'm actually pretty stoked to bring some light to the other people involved that make Kaleo so awesome for us. And what's even more mind-blowing to me is that the first one I'll get to share is with EYK STUDIO.
It's hard to be a fan of Kaleo and not be a fan of Eyk Studio as well.
Well, here it is! Exclusively shot and recorded at the end of Oct 2016 for us to debut on our fansite, we are super stoked to bring you the world premiere of Jordan's cover of "All the Pretty Girls" below:

Vatnajökull National Park day! I was actually so scared of this, but I said to myself you have to walk on the glacier cause you might never get the chance again. We put on our hiking boots and walk on the glacier with these spikes that remind me of Wolverine lmao.

We’re doing Fjotsdalshreppur and Laki today. Fjotsdalshreppur is basically a canyon with a beautiful waterfall and river at the bottom. I went right up to the cliff side and that was so cool. Laki was even cooler in a way. You have to drive on an F-Road and there's about 4 river crossings with no bridges. I was laughing at every crossing cause it was so funny to see the family screaming saying the car is going to flood! I mean the facial expressions were priceless.
The car didn't anyway flood but the rivers were getting bigger cause of rain. Laki is a field of lava (dried lava unfortunately) and at the end of the road (took us about 1 hour) there's these gorgeous mountains you hike to get these beautiful views of the valley and lava fields. Going down the mountain while its raining is a different story… it was slippery and steep and my family and I were basically jogging down the mountain lmao to get back to the car as fast as possible.

We started heading back to the house cause it was getting to be around 7 and we knew the property owners would not like waking up to trespassers lol. I eat kiwi’s for breakfast cause they are the best fruits ever, then we go to a supermarket and totally raid the place (we didn't steal anything lol).
Now we’re heading for Pingvellir National Park, Sudurland, the Golden Circle, Rangarping Eystra, and Vik. The Pingvellir is where the 2 continental plates are drifting apart which fascinates me cause I did a huge report about that in Iceland a few years back. Sudurland was a famous geyser that spits water out every 5 minutes. The Golden Circle was beautiful! It’s so much cooler than Niagara falls tbh (even though I’ve never been lmao). Now Eystra is really cool when its sunny cause there’s a rainbow, but the rain just loves to follow me around.
I’m wearing jeans and I go right up to the waterfall and I get instantly soaking wet ugh! Its freezing cold water cause its fresh from a glacier. There’s these two British guys with a bro pro and they jump right into the water and got out of the water so fast lmao. Then once I was back in the car soaking wet and freezing we went to Vik!! Civilization yay!! That’s where I bought waterproof pants and my traditional Icelandic wool pullover at Ice Wear… Iceland is so creative with names jk.
