Michael McGrath has been photographing live national and local music acts in Colorado and New Mexico for the past 25 years. Capturing the magic of a live musical performance is his favorite task as a photographer. He has also shot numerous album covers and promotional photos for independent and major label artists, including Concrete Blonde’s Johnette Napolitano, and Ben Harper.
In 2009, Michael began shooting live music for Reverb, the Denver Post’s music website. For Reverb, he has shot some of his favorite bands, including The Flaming Lips, The Dead Weather and Dinosaur Jr.
His live music prints are available at Denver’s Twist and Shout Records, and also directly from Michael. If you see an image you like that you’d be interested in purchasing, please email Mike
