Frontmen & Frontwomen
What does it mean to be a frontman or frontwoman, and how does one get there? Seemingly, it’s more than just being a lead singer. There are plenty of great singers out there who, somehow, just don’t rise to this stature. I wonder, is it due to some kind of mystical power of attraction? Seriously, as a journalist I’ve covered a lot of live music and this magnetism is real! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been photographing a performance and found myself mesmerized, maybe spellbound, in such a way that I have to remind myself to also focus on the other musicians; sorry lonely drummers. These images are a collection of some of “the greats” that I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and I hope there are many more to come.
