{Los Angeles Musician- Casey Hayden-Santa Monica Boulevard}

Sometimes you get to photograph the most handsome person to walk the earth. Sometimes that day is today. Casey Hayden- the talented musician that I met a year ago while photographing the musical BARE, and I got to hang out. We found many random walls along Santa Monica Blvd and Melrose, including the Paul Smith wall, a bright and vibrant pink wall that serves as a great backdrop. At the end of our exploration, walking down Santa Monica Boulevard, we returned to his house where he played me a song he had just finished.

I cried.

The words in his song, Two Hearts, are beautiful, heartwarming, and powerful.  In April of 2013, Casey lost the love of his life, RJ, to meningitis. It was fast, it was unexpected, and the next thing Casey knew, his love of his life was gone. I cannot wait for everyone to hear this beautiful song, it will change you!
