While this may look like any other music shoot it’s actually a commission for London agency Manifest via PinPep Media. And yes, I’m sure you recognise Tom Grennan but possibly not the supports; NXDIA and Olly Flavell are as yet unsigned and relatively unknown. Ibis Music, is running a series of 40, intimate gigs in Ibis Hotels all over the world. In partnership with Sony Music UK, the project has been developed to showcase emerging local talent alongside established artists, giving them an opportunity to perform in their home cities.
For this one, we were in Manchester, where all the artists got a fantastic reception and then the pressure was on to deliver the best images for circulation. The process went super smoothly with Ibis working alongside me to make a first cut then Tom refining the selection. Thanks to James at PinPep for inviting me along to what was a really brilliant event.
