These portraits are of song writers and musicians.  Each portrait comes with a link to a song.  With this series I mean to celebrate creativity in music and those artists that haven't 'made it big'. 

To reveal a little more about them I decided to take the portraits in their homes.  

I love the music I find in the underground club and pub scene in England.  Of those I photographed only few manage to forge a living solely from music and they are usually holding down a full time job, in order to be able to forge a living whilst simultaneously following their real passions.       

Weekends and evenings are usually taken up by song writing, band rehearsals, recording sessions, gigs and honing their skills.
