Cedar Rapids, IA (February 24, 2018)

Kane  Brown was raised in rural northwest Georgia and the Chattanooga, Tennessee area.He is of mixed descent, his father is black and part Cherokee and his mother are white. He was, however, raised by his single mother. His family, while sometimes homeless, moved around when he was younger from Rossville to Fort Oglethorpe and LaFayette Georgia, finally settling in Red Bank, Tennessee. As a result, he attended many schools, among them Lakeview-Fort Oglethorpe High School in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia where he sang in the choir with Lauren Alaina, the runner-up on season 10 of American Idol. He also attended Red Bank, Ridgeland, and Soddy-Daisy High School. Kane grew up listening to country music but became interested in R&B music in middle school. However, after signing Chris Young’s “Gettin’ You Home” in his 11th grade during a school talent show and after winning the contest, he began to perform country music. Brown auditioned on both American Idol and X-Factor after the success of his school friend Lauren Alaina on Idol. He was chosen for X-Factor after an audition in 2013 but left the show when its producers wanted to include him in a boy band, after which he decided to post his cover versions of popular songs online.” Wikipedia

George Burrows began his love with live music in the 60's. Burrows attended Cream on October 14, 1968, at Vets Auditorium in Des Moines, IA. The first arena rock performance in Iowa. A year later Burrows attended The Denver Pop Festival and became a part of musical history. The Jimi Hendrix Experience broke up at Mile High Stadium, just after playing the Denver Pop Festival on June 29, 1969. Throughout the 70's into the 90's Burrows continued to get deeper into the concert scene. At each concert, Burrows could be found engrossed in observing the pre-show stage, setup and meeting people associated with the events. Burrows has become friends/colleagues with many people in the music industry. His 30-year fascination with live music eventually led to concert photography. Burrows started his Live Music website in 2006. In 2017 Burrows added his passion for drumming with photography by launching a complementary website, Drummer Photographer.
