I had the pleasure of meeting and touring with these fun lads (see that English thing I did there?) this past Fall on 3 separate tours. All the way from the UK, it was The Hunna’s first time touring around the US, and they RIP it live.

This post covers runs supporting Jimmy Eat World (what???) and The Struts, another talented group of English homies. See Part 2 here!

I had the pleasuring of joining Coast Modern on tour this summer, supporting The Wombats (a long-time favorite!). While with them, we hit cities in the SW, and had a few adventure/shooting/travel days in between!

Valise are very talented recent friends from right here in the South. These guys hosted an incredibly successful release show at Three Links in Deep Ellum for their debut full-length Young Bloomer, right before they headed out on tour with Copeland. We met up early for some promo shots.

One on of their pre-tour headline shows, I met up with X Ambassadors for some promo shots in Kansas City before shooting the live set. It also happened to be the official release day of their amazing debut full-length, VHS.

I shot Silverstein at House of Blues in Hollywood last month on their Discovering the Waterfront 10 Year Anniversary tour. Probably my last time at that venue before it’s torn down! My buddy Victor Zeiser of Squeek Lights is one of the best LDs I’ve had the pleasure of working with. Enjoyed shooting this set for his website!

Check back for a follow up post with promos I shot for the band later on in this tour!

I had the privilege of documenting Grouplove‘s intimate benefit show (and first show of 2015) at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, LA. It’s been a few months since tour, so it was amazing to be back with this beautiful group of people! Read more about the concert’s cause here.
