Ty Johnson is a Melbourne-based music and lifestyle photographer, art director, producer and co-founder of Sideshow Alley. He loves music and really loves to document music lovers at countless music festivals around Australia, the UK and USA. Ty is also a film producer and editor making his feature film debut with the music documentary Austin to Boston that releases today (June 12, 2015) on Netflix, iTunes and other outlets.
Austin to Boston is a modern music tour, done the old way. The bands Ben Howard, The Staves, Nathaniel Rateliff, and Bear’s Den take five old VW camper vans on a 4,000 mile zig-zagging trek around the US in just 2 weeks. The adventure started at a backyard party after Austin’s SXSW Music Festival and headed to the northeast, pushing through storms, vehicle breakdowns, and cramped conditions to play just about everywhere, from bars to barns, rooftops and more to wow fans old and new. The documentary features Mumford & Sons’ Ben Lovett and is narrated by Gill Landry. Here’s the trailer:
