Away and Into the Blue

Let me introduce you to The Great Royal Shepherd, aka The GRS.

The GRS is a musical artist that I recently had the pleasure of working on a couple of projects with. He is currently putting some finishing touches on a new album he’s been working on titled Away and Into the Blue. His sound is described as follows:

“…an artist of progressive pop, rock & roll, and hip hop fused in vivid transcendence. A tasteful touch of harmony, and an inspiration to fellow dreamers like himself, he creates an emotional trip for audiences with unique blend of rapping and singing.”

With a description like that, it’s hard not to wonder what to expect!

To help The GRS prepare for the release of his new album, we worked on two separate projects. One was a photography session to help unify and solidify the look of the album and social media presences, and the other was a website to prepare to promote the album’s online presence and create a digital hub for all things GRS. We still have one more project on the way; an album cover for Away and Into the Blue.
