Live Music

Rackett @ The Brighton Up Bar 15/04/17

Rackett really are a band on the way up and at the rate that they are going they will soon be at the top.  Their live performances are something to be seen and I don’t how they manage to generate so much energy on stage.   Their music is fantastic and they quickly garnish the attention of everyone in the venue.

I have been lucky enough to photograph them four times and each time that I have seen them the improvement is noticeable.

The Brighton Up Bar in Oxford Street Sydney was the location for the launch of new single “Ready or Not” and I was there to photograph the performance.

They were supported on the night by Julia Why? and Coffin.

Hayley Jensen @ Leadbelly, Sydney 09/04/17

Hayley Jensen performed at the Leadbelly in Newtown last weekend to launch her album Past Tense and Present Peace and was supported by Matt Cornell and Emily Markham.  There was also a guest appearance by Jay Seeney of the Jay Seeney Band. It was a great night of music that was well supported by her fans.

The Preatures @ the Manning Bar 02/03/17

I was lucky enough to catch a gig of the Preatures before they headed overseas to record some new music.  Initially I thought that I was going to be the only photographer in what was a very narrow pit but before too long it started to fill!  The Preatures put on an awesome performance and is up there with one of the best that I have seen in a long time.

They were supported by Ngaiire.

So Frenchy So Chic 2017

The So Frenchy So Chic Music Festival has quickly become a highlight of my music calendar.  I apply to photography the festival without knowing anything about the artists and each time I walk away thoroughly impressed with the music and the performances!

This year I was treated to music from Sophie Maurin, Bertrand Belin, The Limiñanas, Deluxe and Nouvelle Vague.  It doesn’t matter what language is sung, if it’s great music you will enjoy it and I certainly did enjoy it!

Ricki-Lee Coulter @ Bella Vista Farm 26/01/17

I had heard a lot about Ricki-Lee over the years since she was a contestant on the Voice but had never seen her perform or really listened to her music.  When I heard that she was going to perform at the Australia Day celebrations at Bella Vista Farm I took the opportunity to see first hand why her popularity had soared.

I must say that I was glad that I braved the heat of another hot Australia Day to photograph her performance as she is quite the entertainer.  Great music, dancers and stage lighting really kept the crowd (and myself) entertained.  Ricki-Lee really knows how to engage with the audience and entertain.

Here are a few of the photos that I took of the performance.

Lara Parker-Kent @ Bella Vista Farm 26/01/17

Lara Parker-Kent with Michael Kelly on guitar performed at the Australia Day celebrations at Bella Vista Farm.  I first heard Lara sing about 13 years ago at a fundraiser and was amazed at her voice even then.  She has since gone on to perform on live television as a contestant on The Voice and is now making a name for herself as a wedding singer.  Along with Michael Kelly they are a very talented duo and are available for corporate functions, parties and weddings.

Fishers Ghost Gig 2016

As a photographer and lover of music I try to support local artists this is where our future super stars are going to come from in the future.  We are blessed with so many talented young artists in Sydney.  These photos were taken at the Fishers Ghost Gig at Campbelltown  in November, 2016.  I had already photographed a few of the artist before and was well aware of their talent.

Here are a few of my shots from the day.

Rackett @ The Factory Theatre 15/12.16

Rackett are one of my favourite bands to photograph and listen too.  They put on a dynamic gig that is full of energy which the crowd thrives on.  As soon as I saw that they were supporting DZ Deathrays I started the process of gaining a media pass.  Luckily Rackett came to the assistance and gained access for me.  Here are a few of the shots taken on the night.

DZ Deathrays @ The Factory Theatre 15/12/16

I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I arrived early at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville to shoot a gig for Amnplify as I had not previously heard of the DZ Deathrays.  It was also a school night and I was surprised that there were so many teenagers waiting at the entrance.

DZ Deathrays hail from Melbourne and they hit the stage with a blast of laser lights and smoke.  Whilst great for the audience who had waited all night to see them, it made things difficult for the photographers in the pit.  One minute the stage was in complete darkness and then wham, the lasers shot out a bright stream of light again!

The crowd of fans were not disappointed as the DZ Deathrays put on an electrifying performance.

Travis Collins + Kaylens Rain + Mickey Pye @ Rooty Hill RSL 04/11/16

Friday night at Rooty Hill was great night of country rock opening with the Kaylens Rain duo of Glen Harrison and Kaylee Stewart followed by Mickey Pye and then Travis Collins.  All three acts are great performers in their own right and already headline shows.  It was a great combination of artist that showed the audience that the future of country music in Australia,  Each time I hear any of the artists perform I walk out thinking how good they are!

Stonefield @ The Imperial 08/10/16

Melbourne band Stonefield headlined a gig at the Imperial Hotel Erskineville last month and as I heard good things about them I decided to head along to photograph the gig.  I’m glad that I did as they put on a great performance.

Rackett @ The Imperial Hotel 08/10/16

I was lucky to chance upon a gig of the Rackett during this year’s King Street Crawl. I was very impressed with what I saw and heard so I kept an eye out for another Rackett gig.  I didn’t have long to wait until I spotted this gig at the Imperial being advertised

The Imperial Hotel offers a few different perspectives to photograph bands as there is a raised platform behind the stage and also on each side.

King Street Crawl 2016

Father’s day this year was spent with my son Daniel wandering around listening to bands during the King Street Crawl at Newtown.  It was my first experience of the King Street Crawl and I enjoyed hearing some new music.  I ended up photographing a few bands at the various venues that we visited.

The McClymonts @ Rooty Hills RSL 29/07/16

The McClymonts performed at Rooty Hills last month as part of their 10 years of hits tour.  It was a great night of music which the the crowd loved.  This particular concert was sold out so be quick if you want to catch one of the remaining gigs on the tour.  You can find out details of the rest of the tour on The McClymonts Website.

I photographed the gig on behalf of Amnplify.

Prinnie Stevens + Maysa Tippens @ The Basement 09/06/16

Prinnie Stevens performing during the Divas Series 2 at the Basement 9th June, 2016.  Prinnie covered songs by Diana Ross, Alicia Keys and Chaka.  She certainly has the perfect voice for it and did them justice! Prinnie was a contestant on the Voice in season 1.  Look out for future shows.

 

Prinnie was supported by the very talented 18 year old Maysa Tippins and she also has a big musical career ahead of her.
