ACCLAIMED PHOTOGRAPHER JOSEPH LLANES LAUNCHES NEW COMPANY, GREYLAND, IN NASHVILLE

Wednesday, December 5, 2018 - 2:00pm

Renowned music industry photographer Joseph Llanes, who has shot for the likes of Billboard, New York Magazine, Rolling Stone, Spin and numerous album covers/musicians, launches Greyland, a new media outlet/merchandising/design company, in Music City. The new venture sees Llanes and his team bringing together a group of artists from the Nashville area to benefit MusiCares this holiday season in what will be referred to as “12 Days of Greyland.”
 
Llanes tells Forbes.com, “We started Greyland with the intention of being able to grant the access I’ve had for the past several decades in the music industry, to the fans. I’ve worked with Rolling Stone and Billboard, to name a few, a lot in my career and I’ve noticed a change in the industry, and I wanted to be a part of that change. I wanted to be able to spotlight new artists and musicians on my own terms and give fans an entire experience while doing so. From photo, to design, to editorial, to actual art pieces fans can buy on merch items.”
 
Artists participating in the “12 Days” record a holiday song for Greyland. Additionally, Llanes and TK McKamy, a two-time CMA winner for Best Video Of The Year director, produce exclusive holiday webisodes and images to coincide with each track, all benefiting MusiCares, which provides support and community services to musicians in need of medical, personal & financial assistance.
 
The project launches on December 13 at 
greyland.com with merchandise proceeds going directly to MusiCares.
