Artist: Drake
Venue: Toyota Center
City: Houston
Date: September 3

Drake

Where to start other than Drake caters to his fans. He has a special bond with Houston and he definitely made that loud and clear during his two shows while in town.

You could feel the energy in the air and the vibrating music through your body. Rather than leaving town to his next show or heading to his hotel, Drake made an appearance at a local venue and preformed alongside DVSN.

Assigned to photograph St. Lucia at a small venue, I came in with very little expectations. I was absolutely blown away by their awesome music and the passion they perform with.

luke-bryan-2016Watching and photographing Luke Bryan is a joy. He gets the crowd involved and enjoys doing it. He’s caught in the moment and genuinely looks happy on stage which is pretty rare.

City: Houston
Date: November 27

As if their music wasn’t enough, The 1975 paid very close attention to detail and added light installations that complement them and their music very well throughout the show.

You could feel the passion and love in the air from their fans. It is a very unique experience unlike any other.

Crowd surfing, people walking monster. Those are the words that come to mind when I hear “Tory Lanez”. As soon as he hits the stage, you’re part of his world. Quite possibly one of the best performers in the game. He gives it 110% and it definitely shows.
