I’ve lived in Seattle since 2000. I was born and raised in Chicago. Whenever I meet a person from Chicago or hear someone talk about a trip they made as a visitor to Chicago I have to admit I get the warm and fuzzies. I still consider it home even though my life and home is in Seattle and I wouldn’t change it. Weird, I know. Today was a special treat for me at KEXP’s studios. I photographed the very talented and lovely band JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound hailing from sweet home Chicago. I asked the band if they were playing any Chicago shows over the holidays as I would have loved to catch a show with close friends but sadly they’ll be away on tour. So I soaked up as much as I could today and I highly suggest you check them out whether online or in the flesh. Great group of guys. For the full set of photos go here.
