20 Magmazing Local Artist Moments of 2012

What a year it’s been in the Victoria Music Scene. It’s definitely a busy year for me. It seems like every other week I was out shooting local bands at Sugar, Lucky, Upstairs, and various other live music venues in Victoria… and that was only a fraction of the gigs I was invited to. Many I had to miss due to my regular work hours. I’ve shot so many local gigs I decided to open up a YouTube channel and website dedicated to local artists.

Last year I had a Top 10 countdown of my favourite videos shot of local artists. This year it’s increased to a Top 20 to showcase as much of the city’s talent as I can.

Victoria Music SceneThis year local favourites released new albums, a couple placed in the top 5 at this year’s Peak Performance Project and new bands took the scene by storm.

So here’s my Top 20 Magmazing Local Artist Video Moments I shot in 2012 brought to you buy!


If you don’t want to go through the countdown one by one, below are links to all 20 posts on each video I’ve chosen. Just click the images.

Towers and Trees held their CD Release Party at Canoe Brewpub on Saturday September 22, 2012. I was asked to shoot the set and was informed that they would start at 11… So with that I went to another gig, arrived at 11 only to discover they started around 10. I scrambled and managed to catch the last song and the encore.
