The Best Work

I simply love working with Musicians. These are people who love their work...and they may have paid more for their equipment than I have for mine, which is always a nice feeling.

This is Lacey, violinist for The Pretty Darns. These three girls are seriously talented, each of them writing songs and each of them singing while performing. I mean, I can't even walk and chew gum, or keep both eyes open when using my camera, and here they're creating art with their whole persons in front of large crowds. Pretty amazing.

Next up is Liz on mandolin. Her fingers make that thing sing! There are, like, a thousand strings on it, and she strums and plucks and picks out the most enjoyable tunes. She can leave her instrument at home, anytime, though and keep the crowd enthralled with her voice alone. She's got one song, Lunacy, and I think it's just great.

Finally, Annemarie on guitar. She's lead vocals on most songs, I guess (seems like they all carry each other as they work the tunes around, supporting one another), and half the fun with Annemarie is the great expressions she pulls while singing and playing. You can tell from this one that she's got some spunk hidden in there somewhere.
