Remember my post a few weeks about about the Ben Folds concert? Well, the very next night I went to hear Allred play an acoustic set down in Provo at Velour. It was just Allred in his crushed red velvet chair, which is where he's written his last 2 albums. I talked to him after the show and convinced him of an amazing photo shoot with his chair.
John is an open book, which is one reason why I think he is such a great song writer. It was intriguing to hear about his life experiences, opinions, and song writing process. I love his freckled face and 7-color-hazel eyes. John is moving back home to Connecticut in June, but promises he will be back for shows. He actually has a show this Friday at the Faces Photo Studio in Draper at 7pm.
And I have to say that while we were shooting, I did not have a lot of sympathy for John while he smacked away mosquitoes and gnats. I mean, I had to swat them away every once in a while, but I must've just been in my zone. So I get home and it looks like I've broken out in hives. All along my forehead, under my eyes, under my chin and on my shoulders were TONS of red bites. It was pretty nasty out there to say the least so it was probably good that we left when we did.
