Client —Self Initiated

Year — 2019 onwards


‘Song of the Week’ is a growing Spotify playlist of great music  spanning eras and genres updated weekly.  I’m always listening to music when working so in the spirit of sharing more I started posting about it on Instagram in late 2019. 


After posting for a while using photographs as the cover art it  became apparent that it was the perfect opportunity to experiment with process by creating bespoke cover art each week. So now it has become a means of sharing two major loves of mine, music and portraiture.
