A R I Z O N A was a new (to me) band as of this year, and their insanely infectious music landed them in my Spotify #2017Wrapped playlist over and over again. (If you haven’t made yours yet- do it!!) A few posts ago, I share photos from my time on the rode with GLADES this year. That tour was in support of A R I Z O N A, and I was brought on to photograph them as well. So here are some of my favorite images from their incredible shows along with some BTS moments including a surprise visit/performance feature from Kiiara at The Troubadour in LA!

This year I’ve gotta to work with a few new (to me) bands for the first time! I rode along with GLADES supporting the ARIZONA 2017 Summer headline tour. They’re a three-piece from Australia and we had absolutely the best time. It was their first time touring across the US, so we did some fun sight-seeing in places like Washington DC and San Fransisco! Along with being infinitely talented, they are hilarious! Can’t wait to see them in the US more soon!

Welcome to Part 1 of my photo journal for the MisterWives Band Camp Tour this summer! This time we were joined by The Greeting Committee and Bell The Band. It was so great to get back to playing clubs and hitting some huge summer festivals with these guys!

Part one of two covers the following cities:

St Louis, MO · Columbus, OH · Carrboro, NC · Dover, DE (Firefly Festival) · Cambridge, MA · Pontiac, MI

Make sure to check back for Part 2, which will include my full tour recap video. Also- check out their desktop Connect the Dots game! It features some acoustic video content that I made during the PATD tour this spring!

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!

Abi has a powerful voice, personality and sense of personal style! I travel around the US with her this fall to document her shows and tour behind the scenes. She supported Pentatonix with Us The Duo on the US portion of their World Tour. We were accompanied by her talented band, Carissa (MUA extraordinaire), and her sweet parents/managers.

I’ve never seen a more supportive and proud dad than Abi’s. This post is dedicated to Don, who is loved and missed.

Got to create some beautiful shots with this cool lady, Makenna Fields, who is a singer in Oklahoma. We had such a nice day in downtown OKC!

I spent a day in the studio with Smallpools at the end of the Lovetap! Tour this summer to document the process of recording their acoustic mashup cover of Major Lazer’s “Lean On” with the classic song “Lean on Me” at the Red Bull Studio in Santa Monica. It was amazing to watch the process from arrangement to tracking (as well as hopping into the booth to contribute some group vocals myself).

Check out the track on Soundcloud with these BTS photos!
