Crook at The Hi Hat. Q&A time (more of this interview will be posted on californiarocker.com in the near future): Q. How would you describe your music? A. I often write from a painful place. I try to grab on to intangible moments and transform them in to some sort of victory. Often, my music carries itself in to a bit of a dream world in which we say the things we wished we would have said or we reacted in ways that maybe carried more dignity. The music is built to be cinematic, like a film score for our many emotional landscapes. Q. Do you find greater enjoyment writing a great song or performing a great song? Why the choice? A. Performance is always on my mind when writing. I'm trying to think of the visual character of each song constantly. This is more visible when I am performing with my whole band than when I am solo/locked in to the keyboard. I want the songs I write to have a visceral, lasting effect on the listener and often that requires a bit of physical finesse. Own final thoughts: I get a lot of tears in the crowd when I perform. When asked if that's my goal, I have to kind of sort out why I write such emotional songs. I am trying to create a place in which we all have the opportunity to fall apart in the presence of strangers. So much of our day to day life is spent attempting to seem invulnerable or stoic, we put on mask after mask hoping that the person we put out in to the world will be deemed "fit to function". I believe this is a tool of capitalism, built and maintained in order to keep us repressed. I just want to show or provide people with a counterpoint to that, "look, see? We're all in pain. This is just as confusing to me as it is to you but there can be great victory in our sadness, in our confusion or in our fight. It's okay, just feel it." #crookmusic #thehihatla #quickhitbandinterview #bandinterview #concertphotography #musicphotography #livemusic #laphotographer #bandphotography #ilovela #indierock #livemusicphotography

Andy Dunlop and Fran Healy - Travis . Last #gig of the year a few days ago, and it was a #timecapsule journey back to previous millennium. I went to photograph #travis #touring their best #album, #themanwho, played in its entirety, plus all the other #hits. Revealing their #scottish origins, #glaswegian #fran #healy came to stage with a black #kilt, #guitarist #andydunlop on the other side supports the whole of the band’s #sound. I photographed @Travis the first 14 years ago, if I had time I’d dig into the negatives. Travis to me we’re the band that launched the golden vein of #melodic #indiepop back to the #mainstream, after a few massive hits their place was stolen by #coldplay that went into #stardom in their place. Not sure deserving it more. #whydoesitalwysrainonme? I’m surprised to realise I did more #concertphotography in 2018 than in 2017.

#repost @michaeltubescreations with @download_repost ・・・ MTC 2018 Photos of The Year. @davidoofficial is one of the talented musical artists making waves out of Nigeria, throughout Africa and all over the world. Despite having made his debut with his infectious tune “Dami Duro” in 2011, no other songs Davido has released has compared to 2017’s back to back hits “FIA” and “FALL”. These mega hits launched Davido’s meteoric rise to superstardom and earned him international awards such as the highly sought after Best International Act BET Award and Mobo Awards 2017. Still striking while the iron is hot, 2018 saw Davido taking his 30Billion concert (Powered by @iamsmade) around the world and selling out venues. However, nothing topped the London leg of the tour. His performance was epic, energetic, entertaining and set the trend for 2018 Afrobeats concerts. If you missed his mind blowing performance this year, you don’t want to miss what he has planned for 2019. Davido is back on 27th January 2019!

With only two weeks left of 2018, I've been looking back over some of my favorite shoots from the past 12 months. This one is definitely one of my top faves 🙌 @jesse_ljunggren is one of the most talented people I know and was one of my first friends in music. If you didn't see him live this year, you need to see him ASAP in 2019 because his music is insanely good. It's always a fun time getting to see and shoot this dude and I am very much looking forward to seeing what amazing things he accomplishes in 2019.

After years of gigs, I only had one in mind where the crowd sang their lungs out, every word of every song. So much that you could not tell which were the singles in there, as you usually always do easily at every gig. Now I have two! This night at The Academy was more than awesome, I can't even describe it. Mostly because of @ryanmcmullanmusic's huuuuge talent. I can only hope that 2019 will bring more music from him and more nights like this one. Hopefully I will see him many more times in the future. And the sooner the better 😀 Can't wait !! #ryanmcmullan#dublin#theacademy#ireland#gigphoto#irishnight#talent#irishartist#gig#concert#show#planeteig12#greatmusic#live#musiclover#musiclovers#concertphotography#singer#life#music#musique#stage#lights#fan#instamoment#instapic#tour#sing#soldout#bowie
