Northern Invasion – A Photography Exhibition by Scott Read features up and coming bands Scott has captured over the past year.

He said: “​Throughout this artistic journey I have been privileged to have been able to work with some amazing bands and singers, whose dedication to their own creative pursuit and journey has been nothing short of inspiring. If it wasn’t for them allowing me to stick my camera in their faces as they do their thing, I would not have been able to embark on this quest to present a snapshot of a thriving local music scene. Furthermore, thanks has to go out to the music venues across the North East that have rapidly become a second home.”
