Observation

TORRANCE, Calif. (April, 2018) - Last month I covered the 2018 Mt. SAC Relays once again for the Fullerton Observer. This was the second year the meet was held at El Camino College in Torrance. Looks like we will have one more year before the Hilmer Lodge Stadium is complete at Mt. San Antonio College. Just wanted to post the article that ran in the newspaper today. Thanks for looking.

Lemonade

UPLAND, Calif. (April 28, 2018) - This month Blind Innocence played the Upland Lemon Festival. It's basically a street fair with carnival rides, carnival food and huge crowds. They had a decent size stage and a good sound system. The band went on at around 8:30 to a crowd of 200-300 people. They were very well received and the crowd danced and enjoyed the music. Here are some images from the evening.

Transience

And then there were four... coming off the signing of Angelyn & Blind Innocence to a record label, the news came that Brandon (Guitar, Vocals) was leaving the band. What was meant to be a session for album photos, we found ourselves changing plans due to in-climate weather. Plan B was to shoot some studio shots at Forged In Fire Studios (@forgedinfirestudios) in Seal Beach. However, after a couple hours, the skies parted and the sunshine broke through. We kept it light and headed down to the beach to capture some of the following images.

After NAMM

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Blind Innocence played an after NAMM show on Saturday night at the Grasslands in the Anaheim Gardenwalk. They played about a 30 minute set to a pretty packed house. The venue was pretty dark but I made the best of it. All images captured with the Nikon D3 at 24mm.

NAMM 2018

ANAHEIM, Calif. (January, 2018) - I was able to attend NAMM this year and it was in a word, overwhelming. This was the first year that they took over the Hilton and Marriott in addition to the Convention Center. In four days I felt that I still didn't see everything.

The Wondrous World of Wright Records

LAKE FOREST, Calif. (January, 2018) - At the turn of the New Year, Blind Innocence was signed by Wright Records. The producer of their record is Frank D. Wright, former guitar player for the Sonny & Cher Band and Chicago. Starting in early January, the band went into California Sound Studios in Lake Forest to record their debut album. The whole process feels right and things are progressing nicely. The band has booked an album release party at The House of Blues in Anaheim on March 17, 2018.
