Nelson BC Photographer: 2015 Music Favorites

2015: I saw a lot of good music. I shot a lot of good music. And I started to learn how to play music.

When I stopped playing roller derby, the thing I missed most was the camaraderie, the vulnerability you share with a crew of people you trust, going through battle and coming out the other side having learned something new, possibly cathartic, about you and the peeps you roll with… whether you won or lost really wasn’t that important. Most of the time.

I still have a hard time putting away the desire to be the best at something, but unlike a measurable win/lose activity like competitive sport, being in a band still forces you to be better, to hold yourself and others accountable, but not have a feverish desire to trump someone else. You can also drink beer and have a much lower risk of concussion or a broken ankle–though these things do happen in rock and roll.

And here, a reflection on my favourite moments in music this year. Thanks to all the artists for inspiring me to do something that terrifies me.
