A great photo transcends storytelling; it goes beyond anything a title, date or caption can describe. Unearthing these images is like panning for gold, and only a great artist knows where to dig. Adrien has been deeply entrenched inside our world, capturing images of me and the band since before she even realized that she was a photographer. She has never been an onlooker, sitting in a corner waiting for something interesting to happen. Instead she has been part of our unfolding story - injecting plot twists of her own throughout our many years traveling together. Over the slow, steady arc of the band’s career, we’ve enjoyed the luxury of relative privacy. Sure, we’re a gregarious pile of pranksters, but we have the great privilege of sharing our music with the world, and to us, that’s enough. Rarely do we feel compelled
to lift the curtain and reveal what was going on after the lights come back on, because to be honest, it’s not always as pretty as you would think. If anyone else were behind the camera, these photos might tell an entirely different story
(and perhaps one we’d be less inclined to put into a book), but through Adrien’s lens, it’s a story worth sharing.

“Get off your ass, get on a train and come take photos on the road with us!” Words out of my dear friend Matt Burr’s mouth who urged me to find my calling after a bad breakup. Needless to say I got off my ass and into that old whitevan they used to have and started taking pictures of Matt’s band led by his crazy girlfriend, who, in the years to come, would end up being an inspiration and a sister to me.
Over the years I’d hop on and off the road with them. From car to winnebago to van to bus and now, once and a while, by plane. Meeting up with your oldest closest friends to do what you both love is a feeling that I cherish every time I
step on that bus or watch them step on that stage. For me this journey, and book, is about making art from observing art, personalities, struggle, change, inspiration and friendship.
