May 2021 is nearly here. Time finally feels like it again has 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. But we are stuck in a COVID haze, rattling the cages to open the world to a scale of the before times. As we get closer, the connective tissue that Isolation Drills has created among Philadelphia-area musicians seems as important as ever. This project where Philadelphia-area musical acts have had their portraits and artist statements published on MAGNET Magazine as part of the Isolation Drills series has hit its 210th “drill.” The published #s 201-210 are Niyonu, Fl!p, Grand Mantis, Coleman Rigg, Spirit of the Beehive, Another Michael, Gabe Preston, Jello Vibes, Larlene and Settled Arrows. I snap the portraits while the words are directly from the artists. Visit my pages on my website here and here to see galleries of all artists and visit MAGNET Magazine here to read each one here.
