I loved the opportunity to work more creatively with Amanda Gray (Bonham) for her new website Amanda Gray Music. We had fun collaborating and bouncing ideas off one another, from music to photography, we pulled it all together for a collection of beautiful images that will showcase her solo career. Thank you Amanda for trusting me with a few ideas of my own. I think at first she thought I was nuts when I asked her to round up any handwritten lyrics for her upcoming LP, Covered In Rust. How could that be relevant to her upcoming photo shoot? Check out the backdrop to this header, it's actual handwritten lyrics written by Amanda. When inspiration strikes, she captures pieces of her soul on an envelope that previously delivered a bill.
Most of you know Amanda very well from her band, Amanda Gray and Whiskey Savage – to her duo, Gibson & Gray. Amanda is now launching her solo career with plans on returning to Nashville to record her EP, Covered In Rust. When Amanda is not writing music, performing on stage, rocking the country scene, recording CD's, promoting her music and climbing the musical ladder, she has a full time job in addition to raising a family. She still manages somehow to dedicate herself to family and friends and enriches the lives of everyone around her. I'm not only honored to photograph this beautiful soul, but I am blessed to call her my niece!
