These photos make up Part 1 of the time I spent with Smallpools on tour this summer supporting Neon Trees. The photos start in Nashville, go through much of the Midwest and Southeast US, ending in Tampa. Stay tuned for Part 2, including West Coast dates! Check out Smallpools latest single below.

I met Lamar through his OKC band Good Culture. Now he lives in Colorado and has an acoustic, The Fites, project lovely wife Ashley!

This summer I’ve had the opportunity to go out on tour with a really amazing group of people, who are as fun as their music. Smallpools is Sean Scanlon (vocals/keys), Mike Kamerman (guitar), Joseph Intile (bass), and Beau Kuther (drums). These guys are SO talented and have blown everyone away with their rapid success and high energy live show. It was a privilege to document every day life with them on stage and on the road. I also had a blast getting to know the crew that helped make everything possible- Kelsey Kuther (guitar tech), James Wooten (TM & FOH), and Sandor Schlaffer (merch manager). So proud of everything I’ve witnessed them accomplish and to call the whole crew friends!

These photos are just a fraction of what I covered of Smallpools on Grouplove’s Spreading Rumors US Tour. They span shows from Pomona, Tempe, Tucson, Dallas Edge Fest, OKC, and a LOT of time in the Sprinter… And there is so much more to come! I will be following up with more posts from the subsequent run with Neon Trees. Also check out my Instagram for sneak peeks from tour!

Smallpools is gearing up to release a full length album, but give their amazing first single “Dreaming” a listen while you check out this post!
