THOUSAND DOLLAR CADDY
In 2011 I embarked on what I had no idea would be a long, dramatic, challenging, and eventful voyage. I met Noah Engh purely by chance, never having met or heard of him before, when he answered an e-blast calling for unique stories from touring musicians for a blog I wrote, at the time, for Indie on the Move. At the time he was in the midst of several years of DIY touring as a purely solo artist, creating the wildest, noisiest, and most bombastic, confrontational rock show I have ever seen. And he was doing it over three hundred days per year, completely by himself, with no management, accompaniment, or tour support. It was a ridiculous, whiskey soaked, tobacco stained, filthy era between 2010 and 2015, a portion of which was chronicled in my documentary film, My Caddy Won't Let Me (2013). The rest of it was captured through an expansive series of portraits and photo essays that I compiled into my 2015 book, Thousand Dollar Caddy. Enjoy a selection of images from the book below.
