I had the opportunity to photograph singer/songwriter Kevin Garrett last Thursday at JBTV Music Television. I have to say I was pretty damn impressed by his work and talent.
He's traveling with a band right now, but often he seems to perform solo.
Wiki writes this about him:
Kevin Garrett is an American musician from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania based out of Brooklyn, New York.
Kevin Garrett was born on March 25, 1991, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His debut EP, Mellow Drama, was released on April 7, 2015. Garrett co-wrote and co-produced "Pray You Catch Me", the lead track on Beyoncé's album, Lemonade.
The show at JBTV was at noon, and while they were in the green room before their performance, he and his band were chowing on some salads they ordered in. He stuck his head out the green room and asked, "Portillo's is a big Chicago mainstay, right?"
"Yeah," I said. "They're huge. Everyone loves that place ..." I paused and looked in to see no one had a burger, polish or fries and said, "Wait, none of you got a polish and fries?"
"No," he said.
We both laughed.
Below is the photo I took of him. Facebook hated the treatment I did so I had to do another edit. Facebook pixelated the hell out of the red. To see the other version I did, check my Facebook feed.
Check out some of his work on youtube!
