J. Roddy Walston & The Business

•March 21, 2015 • Leave a Comment

I pick and choose my concert photography nights more than ever but one band I will always be there for is J. Roddy Walston & The Business. The first time I met them was in 2008. I initially heard them via the late, great radio station WOXY.com (97X The Future of Rock’n’Roll). I got word they were playing a tiny bar in Charlottesville (Miller’s) that is legendary for being the start of Dave Matthews’ career. I know for a fact my wife Polly & I were the only two people in the bar solely to see J.Roddy as we sat amongst the usual day-drinkers and regulars. As the band tells the story, they may have accepted the gig based on the fact (or the misunderstanding of) that it was the start of the Dave Matthews’ BAND’s history, not just Dave being a bartender there as the band formed. Long story short, J.Roddy & The Business were told, after two songs, “turn down or leave”. As the bass player at the time (Zach) told me on the way out, “We don’t turn down for anyone.” They packed up and left, unpaid and probably hungry too. It was so rock’n’roll. Time machine to last night and here are my photos from the show with about 500 fans at the Jefferson Theater which is ironically located about 100 yards from Miller’s :: J.

Moonlight Silhouettes

•March 4, 2015 • Leave a Comment

“Moonlight Silhouettes” is a series of twelve photographs presenting a creative collaboration that I did with Stephanie Helvin and Mallory Paige of Moonlight Circus. Four of the photographs incorporate a lenticular printing method while eight are printed on aluminum with a high gloss finish. The lenticular printing method was selected to convey the movement and grace of the aerialists while the metal prints simply capture a single paused moment in their act. I am honored to have been invited to show these pieces at The Garage is located at 250 1st St N, Charlottesville VA.

Opening at The Garage – April 10, 2015 from 5-7pm
Open Gallery at The Garage – April 17, 2015 from 5-7pm

•February 20, 2015 • Leave a Comment

File under better late than never – the remaining videos from my “Views from Rock Falcon” series documenting the recording of The Hold Steady’s sixth LP “Teeth Dreams” have been resurrected from some record company vault in Manhattan or somewhere. Here is the first new one to be posted and it is the band describing the album amongst some “behind the scenes” footage I shot in Nashville TN.

The Secret Storm

•January 26, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Wrapped up Day 2 of the Lauren Hoffman / The Secret Storm video shoot at IX Art Park by bringing in some lovely and talented people. Without giving away too much of the premise, fire-eating and breathing by Opal with burlesque performance by Deepa de Jour from Richmond VA. The album is still in the mixing process with a late Spring / early Summer release date to be determined.

Deepa and Opal for Rich-1
