This collection of portraits came from my personal need to celebrate songwriters and musicians who deserve particular praise for being more than just a part of a machine, but instead have distinct taste, sound, and personality. These musicians stand out to me as distinctly flavorful at a time when trends often create a bland sounds. They all have a unique image and sound that are individual to them that remind me to have that in my own work and life.
I focused to highlight the current music scene, considering how it compares to progressive movements in the history of music that excite and inspire me. The common thread being that their works are opinionated, and reflective the of thoughts and feelings of a generation that might have otherwise gone unstated.
