The Head and The Heart {Fine Art Photography, Champaign-Urbana, Illinois}


My husband and I went to see The Head and the Heart at The Canopy Club in Champaign-Urbana Monday night and WOW!!!!

They were Awe-mazing!!

Normally, I don't like live music, weird right?  It always seems to be too loud, too many people, you have to stand all night and the band never sounds as good as they do on their albums. I've always been this way, not just since I've gotten older.  Guess I can attribute it to my introvert tendencies.

If I could see bands like this more often maybe I wouldn't have such a poor view of live bands because they were amazing! I actually enjoyed their music better live than from the album, and don't get me wrong, I love their album! They were very humble, sweet and thankful that everyone was there to see them. I believed them when they said it.

The Canopy Club was pretty packed but they have balcony seating so we snagged it early and it was sooooo nice to be able to sit. And I love that the Canopy Club is a small venue. As a side note, I was a bartender here when I was finishing my Landscape Architecture degree in 98 and 99!

If you're interested, go check this band out at The Head and The Heart.  And if they're coming anywhere near you......GO!  Take a look at The Canopy Club too. I have to mention the opening band Drew Grow and the Pastors' Wives, they were really incredible too.

Just to prove how great they sound live I took a video of my favorite song 'Rivers and Roads' but I couldn't get it to upload.  Dang it!  You'll just have to settle for a couple photos......

I am a self taught, natural light photographer, with sixteen years of shooting experience under my belt. Back in the day, I learned to shoot with film, developed it and printed my own photos in my darkroom. I've since moved to digital, but film holds a very dear spot in my heart that I just can't seem to shake. I was supposed to be a horticulturalist and landscape least that's what my degree's tell me. I followed that path for some time, along with a few other paths, but photography won my heart. Plants and beautiful mother nature is, and will always be, a great inspiration to me. If at all possible, I prefer to shoot outdoors and somehow incorporate nature into the scene. I'm originally from the Watson, Illinois area, but the majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and only moved home to Illinois with my husband and son a few short years ago. I grew up on a small working farm, with acres and acres of natural areas at my disposal. It gave me a great appreciation for the world around me. I roamed wherever I pleased, built forts in the woods, picked wildflowers in the pasture and caught craw-daddies in the crick. My son is taking over the jobs of fort building and craw-daddy hunting, but I'll never give up the picking of wildflowers.
