Photographer Michael Weintrob has announced a new streaming series, dubbed ‘Instrumenthead Live’.

“I have been fortunate to share space, through my photography, with many musicians around the world. This pandemic has affected us all, in one way or another,” said Weintrob in a press release. This new series is our opportunity to create a safe and fun environment in my Nashville studio for everyone to enjoy high quality audio and video in a unique gallery where the art is curated specifically for the artist performing. We are empowering live art.”
