Artist Statement: "I have been taking photos of musicians ever since I picked up my first film camera back in Austin, Texas. I remember thinking it was the coolest experience in the world when my Dad took me to my first rock concert as a kid. Photography has provided me with a backstage pass and I have been fortunate enough to capture some of the most talented artists in the industry.
These photos that I carefully selected out of thousands of images span the course over the last few years while living in Los Angeles, CA. They were shot up close and personal. When I revisit them I feel as though they really express the intimate moments I've experienced.
Having access to photography, artists like these have opened up new doors for me creatively, and deepened my love and appreciation of music. I am honored and grateful for all the different artists and musicians that have graced me with their presence in front of my lens. "
