Blast From the Past: Natasha Bedingfield

Another event I covered on the BBMA 2012 weekend was the intimate Natasha Bedingfield concert that Billboard sponsored.

 

Blast From the Past: BBMA Battle of the Bands 2012

Three years ago today was the second day of a weekend long experience that has been one of the best experiences in my life.  May 18-20, 2012 I was covering the Billboard Music Awards in official capacity.  During that time, I was trying to sell the pictures that I took to publications that I have never  put them up on here.  Here are the pictures from the first event, Battle of the Bands.

More Photos from my iPhone: Florida Georgia Line and Brantley Gilbert 

These pictures are from ACM Party for a Cause 2013 in Las Vegas. For photographers in the press pit, we were only allowed to  shoot pictures with our DSLR cameras during the first 3 sings but we could  still take pictures with our cell phones during the entire set.  As I said before, the iPhone is great tool for photographers. Here are a few pictures I took during the Florida Georgia Line and Brantley Gilbert sets.

The best tool I have on me always when I am covering events is my iPhone. I am able to take pictures and put them up instantly on social media sites. Here’s a few of the pictures I have posted.                     

Bands to Know: My Morning Jacket

Almost ten years ago, I discovered a band that I absolutely love to this day.  That band is My Morning Jacket.  The first time I heard of them was from the soundtrack to the film “Elizabethtown.”  The song that My Morning Jacket had on that album was “Where to Begin” and I was mesmerized by it the first time I had heard it.

 

As I always do whenever I find a new love in music and movies, I went searching for more on My Morning Jacket.  I found more reasons to love this Alt-Rock band from Louisville, Kentucky.  Some of the band’s well known songs are:

Gideon

Off The Record


Wordless Chorus

My Morning Jacket’s seventh studio album, “The Waterfall” is released tomorrow, May 4, 2015. 
Here’s a preview of the album:
