This is my second in a series photo essays on New York City street musicians. I took the photographs for this piece and recorded him playing May 8, 2008. I have long been intrigued by street musicians and my desire to learn more about them inspired this artistic exploration.

This essay is on Key Appleseeds, a street musician who plays the harmonica and guitar while singing rock and the blues.

He performs original songs as well as covers.

He is from Nagoya Japan and has been playing in the subways for about eight years. He said that when he came to the U.S. he planned to play in the streets but his final motivation came when a girl broke his heart.

For more information on Key, please see his MySpace music profile

Each photo essay that I do in this series will be accompanied by a painting.
