After many years in the music industry as a photographer and then as a photo-journalist, Roz de-Layen Vian formed Photos-4-Bands in 2007, photographing gigs in many venues, including The Old Duke Blues and Jazz fest, The Croft, The Cheese and Grain, The Thekla, The Perfect Fifth, The Louisiana and Cabot Hotel; and promotional work for many bands in and around Bristol, Exeter, Gloucester, Taunton, Frome and the many towns in between.
She had the pleasure of photographing Eddie Martin at the Bristol Jazz Fest and Port Erin, providing promo photography in preparation for their Glastonbury appearance in June 2010.
Some of the new acts that she is looking forward to photographing this year are Iscatels, a massively successful Exeter based Reggae Band; Steve Reid Williams, a hugely talented musician destined for major success (check out his latest album, Magnolia Love); Andy Crowdy, one of the UK's best loved jazz musicians; Virgil & the Accelerators, an exciting new blues band; and Clare Free, who, with her award winning music also plays some mean blues! Please Google them all and listen to them on MySpace.
