I had the chance to photograph the Connecticut based band Second Street Saints at the popular Music Festival Alive@Five in Stamford.
Overview: Based in Southeastern Connecticut, SSS is comprised of Rich McGowan (Vocals, Guitar), Devin McGrath (Guitar), Derek Kennedy (Bass) and Tom Kelly (Drums). They came together in early 2010 with the goal of creating intelligent pop music—songs that are pleasing to the ear but also literate, thought-out and distinctive. After months of writing and rehearsing, SSS made its public debut in late 2010 and continues to play regularly throughout Connecticut and New York. The band is also in the process of recording its first demo and recently released the singles “Time Is Running Out,” “Not Too Late,” and “It All Comes Back To You” on its Facebook page. It has also released two DIY music videos on its YouTube page and will continue to release new content throughout the year. SSS knows what it takes to make it in the music industry, and through constant touring and dedication to their craft, the band hopes to show the world what many in CT already know: SSS is the real thing.
One of my friends shared this video on Facebook and I was just blown away. This is really inspiring. I’m glad to see that there are real musicians out there who don’t need autotunes to sound great 🙂 I could listen to them all day.
