CJ Harvey

Location (Philly Neighbourhood): Fishtown

Hometown: Vancouver 


Current Project(s): Freelance tour photography. I've worked with Cold Fronts, Hinds, Twin Peaks, and The Weeks most recently.

Past Project(s): Grizfolk were the first band to bring me on tour, and we went from New York to Salt Lake City in a week and a half.

Instrument(s) you play (if any): I'm the best musician in Philly and can play every instrument better than anyone in this town.

What else do you do in the Philly music scene?: I'm working on booking some charity shows for early 2017 right now which has been a lot of fun. It's cool to see so many people in the music scene wanting to get involved and combine their platforms to give back to people who are hurting right now.


Location of Photo(s): My room!

What does this location mean to you?: I love my room an awful lot, but haven't spent a ton of time here yet since I only moved to Philly over the Summer and have been on tour pretty nonstop since then. Hopefully this winter I'll have a bit more time to get settled (and finish unpacking).
