Last month I shot and recorded a video of Tim Barry playing “Solid Gone” off his new album “Lost & Rootless”. The piece was shot in the shed behind his house and the significance of the location is simply, that is where the album was actually recorded last winter. Also, here are some photos I took of Tim in concert playing earlier this week in Baltimore with his current tour mates Two Cow Garage opening the shows.

Chamomile & Whiskey had me in the studio with them this week as they attempted to record two new songs from scratch in two days. I will produce a short video piece on the process in the coming weeks but in the meantime, here is a sneak peek via a dozen or so photos :: Chamomile & Whiskey at Monkeyclaus Studio.

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 (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. Roddy Walston & The Business photos at The Jefferson.
