LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…The band was kind enough to let me hang out with them during soundcheck, giving me the chance to practice taking some “behind the scenes” shots. Alex and Amber we being their typical cool selves, and I got a chance to hang with Garret Henritz (drums) and Max (bass). Another photographer, Marcos Manrique, dropped in to take some portraits for another publication, and I just kind of took pictures of him taking pictures of them. LOL. I was just trying to stay out of the way.
What I gleaned during the photoshoot was that everybody was pretty much down for whatever, goofing around with each other and playfully ribbing each other about little things. It’s always refreshing to see a band get along like that.
After their photoshoot, Amber spent some time setting up the merch table and we shot the shit a bit about the music on the new album and how they much they were looking forward to the evening. I made my way to the green room where Max and Alex were talking about their travels and comparing music scenes from different countries… and also learning that the steering wheel of a plane doesn’t actually steer a plane…”
