When: September 7, 2017
Where: Hugh’s Room Live, Toronto ON
International Blues Challenge winner (2017), JUNO Award Nominee and Billboard Top 10 Blues artist JW Jones tours constantly, and is known for his high-energy live shows. Canada’s national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, referred to this Maple Blues Award winner as “one of this country’s top blues guitar stars.”
JW’s new release ‘High Temperature’ was named the Hot Shot Debut on the Billboard Top 10, and is the follow up to the JUNO Award nominated ‘Belmont Boulevard’. From the liner notes: “Acclaimed Nashville producer Colin Linden takes Jones into new territory with warm, analog-driven tones, and a wide-range of material. His evolution as a musician and vocalist shine through on this record like never before. Real songs, real playing by real people, and JW is the real deal.” – Chuck Leavell

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
