United By… Book Project

If you’ve been paying attention, you might notice that I’ve discontinued a feature I started back in April of 2020. “United By” was the skeleton for a book featuring many of the concert/show images I had taken over the years. After a spirited start, reality set in, and the idea went into the “Maybe someday.” to do file; however, after finding a template where I could build my project at my own pace. Things picked up rapidly. After seeing the right person to pen the books foreward and an incredible editor, I began reaching out to band members and people involved in putting on shows, putting out records, and giving a voice to those who create. The responses and thoughts added much-needed yet previously void of life to both the images and my little project’s purpose. Work continues as I wait for the final images to be digitized and downloadable.
Though things seem to be wrapping up on my side, I know there is still a lot of work to do before figuring out how to submit it to publishers. Here’s to a long wait.

Thinning the Herd Meet and Greet.

Thinning the Herd is a band I’ve been following for some time now. They were and are one the many bands I’m interested in talking to for Unite. When my bestie Rich Trash told me he was friends with the band I asked him to do the interview in order to possibly gain a more personal insight as to what makes them so fucking awesome.
When I heard they were playing the Lit Lounge I figured I’d swoop into Manhattan, gets some pictures and introduce myself. Seeing them live for the first time in over a year was great. Getting to hear the newer songs and get up close. Hopefully Rich will get back to nYc soon to sit down with the guys.
Thanks to Gavin for the Cd’s. I appreciate it. The bands new release Oceans Rise is amazing.
