Header over to my favourite venue last month to catch Jack Garratt's sold out show.
For those not familiar, Jack is a very talented multi-instrumentalist who won the coveted BBC Sound of 2016 award last year. He can usually be found cocooned within a rig of chrome scaffolding that is akin to a musical Swiss Army knife. Said rig holds a drum kit, various sample trigger pads, keyboards, a piano, a guitar (with amp), and a Breville sandwich toaster. For all intents and purposes, he's a modern one-man band.
You'd expect, given how damn-busy he is during his live shows, that he'd be a bit tough to photograph. I mean, it's a dude surrounded by scaffolding who can't really move, so what's their to photograph? Right?
In reality, Jack's shows was great to shoot. Yes, he barely moved. But the spectacular light rig he had with him, combined with his equally spectacular facial expressions, meant their was plenty to keep us photographers busy.
Great evening, watching a lad with some serious skills.
