"In October of 2015 I photographed an unknown musician supporting Hozier. He was playing acoustic all on his own. Although I did not know the words to any of his songs, I felt totally immersed in his sound. He belted a song called "Clocks Go Forward" with only his guitar and I felt goosebumps. Fast forward less than a year, and here's the same scrappy man with his guitar playing with that same guitar. Instead of hearing lyrics to a song I've never heard, it was the sound of a few thousand people singing his hit "Let It Go". At that moment I realized that it doesn't matter where you are in that moment. There is always room for growth, and sometimes dreams really can become reality."
