Rockin’ (The Rockabilly Scene)
Rockabilly isn’t just a kind of music, it’s a way of life. A raw fusion of rhythm and blues with country and western, rockabilly heralded the start of teenage rebellion in America in the early 1950’s. The stripped down sound witnessed a revival in the 1970’s and has continued until today, with rockabillies embracing not only the music but the clothes, cars and lifestyle of 1950’s youth counterculture. Rockin’ is my book of the contemporary rockabilly scene. Given exclusive access at events on both sides of the Atlantic, I wanted to capture the raw energy of the music and the commitment of the rockabilly community to authenticity. Below are a few images from the book.
