I was lucky enough to be invited along to document the second sold out Urthboy show at Howler in Melbourne last weekend, Friday May 27, the beginning of his Second Heartbeat tour. It’s always a pleasure when you get to shoot some of the quieter behind the scenes moments before a show as well as all the elements that come together for a live show. Urthboy was joined on stage by special guests Kira Puru, Bertie Blackman, Okenyo and Jane Tyrrell, and was supported by Okenyo and L-Fresh the Lion.
