On Wednesday night, one of our favourite musicians was in town to play a show at the Myer Horowitz theater. His name is Wil and this show marks the fifth time we’ve seen him perform live. Last time Wil was in town, I shot some images for his website along with some video which you can read about here. This time around, Wil has a new album out and is performing with another talented musician Matt Anderson – the first Canadian to win the International Blues Festival. Although we’d never seen him perform before, Matt blew us away with his powerful voice, soulful lyrics and amazing guitar playing. You can learn more about Matt on his website at www.stubbyfingers.ca. If you ever have the opportunity to see either of these guys perform live you definitely don’t want to miss the opportunity.
I arranged to do some more concert photography for Wil and ended up getting some extra passes so we were so lucky to be able to introduce Wil’s music to the amazing photography duo of Rob & Lauren. If you haven’t checked out their work be sure and head over to their website to learn more about them. Both took turns doing some shooting and shared their thoughts and a few photos from the event on their blog.
Here are a few of my photos from Wil and Matt’s performances. I also shot some video which I’ll try to get posted up soon.
