You can now pre-order this first comprehensive photography book of the Artists of Americana Music via his Kickstarter project that he launched today. Many of these portraits were photographed at AmericanaFest in Nashville.

Like the stories these songwriters weave, Fasano’s photographs find a common thread that sets them apart and makes them unique—while telling a story entirely his own—through his distinctive lens.

Jeff Fasano says, “The musicians of the Americana genre have always fascinated me because they tell stories. I relate to their songs about the struggles and triumphs of everyday life because my story mirrors their creative journey. This is one of the reasons why the Americana genre is still my favorite and the musicians who create this unique music continue to intrigue me.”

Fasano’s use of light and textures evokes powerful emotions while reflecting the music of these passionate artists who have carved their own path.

Jeff Fasano’s unparalleled access to stars like Sheryl Crow, Judy Collins & Stephen Stills, John Oates, The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, Rhiannon Giddens, Vince Gill, Keb’ Mo’, Lucinda Williams, Margo Price, Jewel, The McCrary Sisters and Kris Kristofferson gives it the kind of authority that comes from vast experience. It’s a book of intimate portraits that reveals the strength, heart, soul and musical genius of these great artists.
