A hot sunny day and a burger on the beach was a welcome prelude to the two heavyweights of the music and rock photography Industry, discussing an exciting new collaboration that will continue Nick Elliott’s Rockumentary series.
As Nick’s Rockumentary projects with Earl Slick and Ed Graham draw to a close, Nick has found himself in the exciting and unique position to choose select individuals within the music industry to photographically document and continue his series of fine art photographic publications.
Great Yarmouth’s jewel in the crown, Jon Peach Is a singer songwriter who has carved an enviable and well respected career within the music industry. Writing and performing with ‘Pray for the Buffalo’ and ‘Junk Shop Poets, Jon has just completed his phenomenal solo project ‘Love Songs For Losers’, which was born out of his passion for beat poetry and storytelling love songs. The Rockumentary, taking approximately one year to capture, allows Nick to shadow Jon during shows, rehearsals, recordings and leisure time.“
“I’m really looking forward to working with Nick we are going to have a great time, do or die it’s going to be fucking fun’!
Jon Peach Singer/Songwriter.
During the production of the Rockumentary, there will be an opportunity for Nick to shoot some surprise guests that Jon will be working closely with over the next year.
“I think this project with Jon will turn out to be a fabulous body of work, plus I think we’ll have a real blast while working together over the next 12 months. Jon has a fantastic look and that is such a big part of the Rockumentary project’s that I do it’s going to make a fabulous book’!
“I’m mad for it”!!

The COVID-19 Pandemic has derailed the music business causing destructive soundwaves Ripling out and destroying years of music workers livelihoods.
Nick has voiced his concern on the ensuing Pandemic and the long-standing effects it will have on the live music business and his friends within it. “ the Pandemic has ground the U.K.’s multi million pound music business to a halt, causing catastrophic knock on affect to everyone associated within the industry. Not only affecting artists but record labels, independent recording companies, freelancers, venues, festivals and agents. This year could change the face of the music industry for ever”

Thousands of festivals and tours have been cancelled or postponed leaving creatives and their fans feeling uncertainty for the future. The music and entertainment industry relies on their heavily freelance creative workforce. The loss of their income, usually for completed work only, may force many creatives out of the industry forever. Many talented people could find themselves redeployed into vocations that do not represent their talents, which will be a total loss for the UK’s music industry.
“ I’m particularly worried about the new aspiring musical acts who rely on live music festivals and tours to showcase their talents and get a footing on the music ladder many talented artists may go undiscovered“
The rise of music streaming, virtual live shows, podcasts and FB streaming is encouraging and many have found innovative ways to keep the music live and to keep fans listening.
Nick Elliott Rock Art Photographer
“ I think that once we come out of the other side of this, the music industry will experience a boom. If artists and their associated workers can survive this brief period of hardship there is a potential for the music industry to begin to thrive again as fans flock back to the music scene.
Life without music is like a life without love“
