THE WEALTHY WEST
Artist Brandon Kinder, now having returned to his hometown of Memphis, TN desired photographic collateral for the release of his new album “The Right Regrets” around the town of Memphis. After much discussion and driving research, Brandon chose some somewhat left behind pieces of town that perhaps outline the feeling of this new album.
Below are the results of our session used for publications, websites, as well as the full session slideshow. There was a bit of creative freedom heres, so with Brandon’s headshots, I played around with hand written lyrics from “The Right Regrets” album and made some fun digital portraits. Check it all out below!
“There is a certain resilience, albeit sometimes desperate to The Wealthy West’s songs. The solo moniker for The Rocketboys’ frontman Brandon Kinder, The Wealthy West sings songs that fully encapsulate someone who has chosen to step away from the comfortable, from his friends and easy relationships, and is trying to figure out his place in life.”
“Kinder, raised in - and now returned to - Memphis has spent all of his adult life in music. Forming The Rocketboys during college in Abilene, TX, he and the group moved to Austin thereafter, gaining much critical praise for their several EPs and albums.”
