Lyric Lea Anderson aka @LyricalGangsta on Instagram

LL_21Being a photographer puts me at certain places and introduces me to new and interesting people. If you know me, you probably know that I love live instrumentation from one side of the earth to the other. I was supposed to learn how to play the bass guitar a couple years ago but I don’t know what happened to that. I guess I can blame it on photography right…? Today’s blog entry has a lot to do with a friend or two and how I came to find the music artist “Lyric Lea“. Okay, so it started with Instagram and just like Facebook I pretty much allow anyone to become my friend because let’s face it… I don’t have many friends and some new ones I’ll never meet in life is always fine by me.. I got a friend request from @LyricalGangsta or Lyric Lea  Anderson a few months ago and never peeped her profile. I assumed the user was a rapper or hip hop fan that dug some of my hip hop album covers I post from time to time under #ThisIsMyShit but that wasn’t true. I started to wonder how I got so many friends and decided to check peoples profiles to see who the heck they were.

LLMOREI ran through a couple and I didn’t know the people from a hole in the wall until I stumbled on LLA’s. I saw a photo of her and another friend of mine together and it made a little sense. I saw that the LLA was a musician so I decided to Google her which led me to a couple YouTube links. The links were of her and her band performing in NYC and that vibe was right up my alley, I was diggin this girl. Not like that although she is super gorgeous, but her vibe, the music, the band the voice and what I think is good music overall. I said to myself “I want to find this young lady and shoot her”. Looked at some more of her images and saw she didn’t have any really great images of herself performing and I wanted to be one of the first so I reached out… Saw a flier that had a couple show dates and I replied to her on Instagram and the rest is pretty much history. We traded a couple emails, and I was good money. My name was at the door so I didn’t have a problem getting in and I was in happy land. I got a chance to create some real cool images and I know she loves the pictures. I mean, who doesn’t love my pictures….!!?? Lol…

I’ll say this, that if you come across something that interests you… go out there and get it. Go out there and eat it. Go out there and be it. Go out there and learn it. Go out there and see it or be like me and go out there and shoot it. It was a pleasure meeting Lyric Lea Anderson and I look forward to seeing her live again…

  1. I ωas curious if you ever thought of chаnging the layout of уoiur blog?Its very wеll written; I love what youve got
    to say. Butt maybe you could a little more iin the
    way of content so people could cоnnect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of teхt fοr only having 1 or twо
    images. Maybe you could space it out better?

    • Sorry uk sky, I actually like my blog the way it is. It’s just my journal sort of speak, too many images for a blog entry turns my blog into a photo gallery and that’s not what I want to utilize my blog for. It’s pretty much an update as to what I’m doing on a daily, weekly, monthly and or yearly basis as a self taught photographer…
