Upgraded Tuesdays || Whitney “No Woman”

Chicago folk-rockers, Whitney, have just released their lead single “No Woman” from their (currently untitled) debut album. It’s a perfect arrangement of soul meets country; the tone of the song alongside the visuals reminds me of home.  This track has me hooked, and I’m excited to see what else Whitney’s frontman, Julien Ehrlich and guitarist, Max Kakacek have in store for us.  Way to keep us hanging’ boys!

The Wild Ones || Sarah Bahbah

Australian music festival photographer, Sarah Bahbah, simply transports me to the time and place of each photograph she takes.  As a lover of music and festivals alike, I cannot tell you how many times I’ve wanted to capture key moments during a concert and wish I could bottle them up forever.  Sometimes those moments pass you by so quickly, taking a video or photo won’t cut it or it’ll take you away from the present time.  And, if you do capture the story… it’s never like what you saw with your naked eye.

Somehow, Sarah captures those moments and she’s not only photographing the artists on the stage, but has stepped back and started a series called “The Wild Ones”.  Here, she focuses on the individuals who attend the shows, and it’s in these pictures, where I fell in love with her photography.

“People thought I was capturing the festival, but I really wasn’t capturing it the way I really saw it, raw organic moments. I was getting really frustrated and decided to step back and photograph the subtle wild ones.” – Sarah Bahbah

“I heard this quote once […] “Observe everything around you as if you’ve never seen it before,” and it’s so true.” – Sarah Bahbah

“He was really good looking, I was just like “Hey, um you look really good smoking that cigarette, can I take a photo of you?” He had really big blue eyes. I just said, “Okay look at me and smoke.” And then I took his photo and ran away.” – Sarah Bahbah
