Charlotte, North Carolina was a different place in 1996. For all of its growth in population and recognition, the city’s art and culture were still hidden to many. Music venues were few in number, and scattered through areas that were often far away from downtown. There were many great musicians, young and old, but few were known beyond the county line. I started to write about what I was seeing, hearing and experiencing in 1995 for the Charlotte-based zine Tangents Magazine. After a few months, I began to feel that writing words upon words to describe all of these sounds wasn’t enough. I had just begun to take photographs, and I found that I could speak to what I was thinking and feeling in one photograph what I couldn’t verbalise in a thousand words. The camera became my new pen, if you will. The camera spoke to me, for me, and pushed me into documenting more. And 20 years later, that journey is still continuing, an unbroken line from the ideas the grew out of the photographs that you see here.

This collection of photographs are of musicians, friends and others that shaped the music scene of Charlotte during that time. Of musicians that came through Charlotte during that time, in venues big and small. People and ideas that I believed in, and still do. Some of these people and places are still with us, and some have gone on. But they still are here, in images, memories and emotions. Lastly, also here are the ideas of a photographer that was learning on the job, and trying to keep up with the possibilities in sight and sound that were all around him. They were early days in my career, as it turned out, but their impact continues on. The people, the visuals, the music. It all shines on.
