Giants Played in Woods Like These
What a thrill it is when friends create impressive things. I am completely obsessed with Tom Figgin's music who keeps whipping out smashing songs... one cracker after the next. This is a particularly impressive feat due to his absolutely stunning video, directed by Niall Kerry.
I met Tom two years ago when his management got in touch and asked if I would like to shoot some pics. I made the, in hindsight bold suggestion, that we would get up at 3am and shoot with the sunrise. Unfortunately for us we were met with cloudy skies and a brisk wind, but never ones to let weather phase us we ventured out on to the roof tops of Kensal Rise. We played around down by the canal and stomped around, Tom strumming on his guitar. Check out the photos here. From then on we have remained solid friends. I so enjoy his gigs and you really must go. He has a residency at The Troubadour and plays often at Notting Hill Arts Club.
